BlizzCon_cover

The 9th edition of the annual video game convention held by Blizzard is coming up on November 6th and 7th.

As usual, the convention will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

This event is the opportunity for Blizzard Entertainment to promote their major franchises such as World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo and the new Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone.

Every year, the convention allows the company to present the upcoming content for its current games and discuss the future of those games. Blizzard also set up some Q&A sessions and panels during the event, and grants the attendees  the possibility to play and test some games of the company.

Attendees at the event are also presented a swag bag which is a bag containing a various Blizzard games-related items, such as collectible figurines or Blizzard in-game content.

If you are not able to come to the event but want to get informed about what’s going on during the event you can still purchase a Virtual Ticket of the event and watch it from anywhere (if you have an Internet connection obviously :D).

If you do so, you will also receive all the digital content of the swag bag.

Take a look at what’s inside the Digital Ticket’s swag bag for the BlizzCon 2015 !

While you might not want any of the outrageous products featured in GTA V’s satirical recreation of Los Angeles, you might be interested by the way they’re advertised – I certainly was. After picking up the game, I did what any normal person would do and took pictures of every billboard I could find. Time permitting, I’ll post more of the faux advertising in the game, as well as discuss what it says about advertising. For now though, enjoy some of these funny in-game ads.
