Sombra will get a Legendary skin, Demon Hunter, to celebrate BlizzCon 2018

The Demon Hunter Sombra skin is the upcoming legendary BlizzCon skin players will receive at BlizzCon this year.

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

Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard, commented on the intention behind virtual tickets in a press release.

The BlizzCon Virtual Ticket is available to buy now (or as a gift) for $49.99. For most Overwatch fans hoping to get their hands on the new Demon Hunter Sombra skin, the latter is likely to be the only viable option, with Virtual Tickets available for £34.99.

Further digital items will also be included with purchases of the Virtual Ticket for other Blizzard titles such as World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, StarCraft II, StarCraft: Remastered, and more, with further details to be revealed by Blizzard closer to BlizzCon.

While playing on the new control map Busan, which went live for all Overwatch servers Tuesday, a Redditor discovered the Demon Hunter Sombra skin as an equippable skin in the hero select screen. We will update this post as items are announced.

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

BlizzCon, a celebration of Blizzard Entertainment's games, esports and the communities that pump life into them, is less than two months away but the harsh reality is that most of the company's fans won't be able to travel to California in early November to take in the festivities in person.
