BlizzCon Virtual Tickets Include Sombra Skin, Chance to Build a Panel

While both of those heroes got a blue BlizzCon-themed skin, this year's BlizzCon skin is a departure from that trend, inspired instead by the Demon Hunters of Blizzard's Diablo series.

"The opening ceremony and esports are free, but the Virtual Ticket is the only way to watch the Mythic, Legendary, and Epic stages live from home, so you won't miss any of the developer panels, Community Night contests, or epic closing festivities", so reads Blizzard's rundown.

As well as the live-event aspects of BlizzCon, Blizzard typically offer exclusive loot for their games to attendees and Virtual Ticket holders.

You can use the skin today if you fork out the cash for the virtual ticket, and that's the only way to get it. BlizzCon 2018 doesn't start until November 2, but you can buy the virtual ticket starting today.

Duke Energy Corp expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas. For the first time, researchers have calculated the impact of climate change on a hurricane before the storm is over.

Hurricane Florence still a threat despite downgrade
And it led to mixed signals from officials in SC , whose governor had canceled mandatory evacuation for several coastal counties. Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind, and he said it will still be an extremely risky storm for rain and storm surge.

Liberian President George Weah returns to Football in match against Nigeria
Nigeria fielded a reasonably strong team, including Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi and fellow midfielder Peter Etebo, of Stoke City. As expected, his every touch and movement were reportedly greeted with cheers and jubilation form the home fans.

An Overwatch player on Reddit spotted the skin in-game and took a bunch of screenshots showing off the Demon Hunter skin.

Alongside exclusive stream access, purchases of the Virtual Ticket also includes an exclusive Sombra skin for Overwatch that gives her an outfit modeled after the Demon Hunter class from Diablo III. At the bottom of that BlizzCon post, there's some small print that says "the in-game items for Overwatch, StarCraft II, and StarCraft: Remastered will also be available separately in 2019". For more information and to grab a Virtual Ticket for yourself, you can head over to the BlizzCon page.

Sombra is the third hero to receive a new skin for BlizzCon, with Bastion and Winston getting skins in previous years.
