The dates for BlizzCon 2018 have been announced

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Here's where and when to buy tickets.

The dates for this year’s BlizzCon event have been announced as November 2-3 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Tickets to BlizzCon will cost $200 from Universe and gain you access to the full two days along with a slew of virtual goodies for all of Blizzard’s games. The first set of tickets will go on sale at 7pm PT, Wednesday May 9. If you don’t manage to grab one then, a second batch will become available at 10am PT, Saturday May 12.

If you’re looking to go, make sure you’re ready at either of those times as we expect the event to sell out quickly. For those unable to attend, a virtual ticket will also be purchasable, with more information available at a later date.

The esports-centered BlizzCon Opening Week will precede the event, running October 25-29 and hosting a variety of events for StarCraft 2, Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft. Tickets will also be made available for the Opening Week for the first time, though the date of release of price have no yet been made available. The Overwatch World Cup event, along with many of the tournament finals, will occur during the main event itself.

The BlizzCon tournaments are as follows:

  • Heroes of the Storm Global Championship: October 25 – 28, November 2 – 3
  • StarCraft II World Championship Series: October 26 – 28, November 2 – 3
  • World of Warcraft Arena Global Championship: October 29, November 2 – 3
  • Overwatch World Cup: November 2 – 3
  • Hearthstone Global Games: November 2 – 3
