Blizzard’s two-day gaming convention is approaching: BlizzCon will return to the Anaheim Convention Center in California on Nov. 3 and 4.

Tickets, priced at $199, will go on sale in two batches—first, on April 5 at 7pm PDT and later on April 8 at 10am PDT. Fans can expect lots of announcements and information across all of Blizzard’s titles. Last year at the fan event, Blizzard announced its new competitive Overwatch League and finally revealed new hero and Mexican hacker Sombra.

Details on the event have yet to be released, but each BlizzCon often highlights all Blizzard franchises—World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Hearthstone, Diablo, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch—alongside competitive tournaments, panels, and cosplay events.

A BlizzCon benefit dinner will be held Nov. 2 in support of the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Blizzard developers will be on hand to chat about games with attendees. Tickets are $750, and net proceeds will go toward the Children’s Hospital. Two hundred tickets will be available for the event.

Blizzard fans unable to attend the event will be able to purchase a virtual ticket, giving access to live streaming coverage of each day’s events. More information on BlizzCon’s virtual tickets and scheduled events are expected as the show draws nearer.
