Hello and welcome back voucherpark gamers to today’s podcast.
In today’s news:
BlizzCon 2019 won’t be kicking off until November, but Blizzard will start selling tickets to its annual fan celebration next week. Tickets will go on sale on May 4, but if you miss out, a second wave will be sold on May 9.
They’ll be pricey though. The cheapest tier is a $229 pass that includes a commemorative statue, unannounced goodies and general admission to the show and “pregame festivities” on the Thursday before the show.
The Portal Pass, $550, is a new tier that includes everything from the standard pass, as well as perks like preferred parking, separate registration, a dedicated lounge and access to the Darkmoon Faire area for a pre-show event called “Night at the Faire”.
$750 and you’ll get a Benefit Dinner pass, letting you meet Blizzard developers while helping out a children’s health charity. You’ll get everything from the standard and Portal tiers.
This year’s BlizzCon will be bigger apparently, with more room set aside for indoor activities, including contests, developer panels, demos and tournaments in Hearthstone, Overwatch, StarCraft 2 and World of Warcraft. You’ll have an endless supply of esports finals to watch.
If you’re aching for the old days of Zoo Tycoon, UK-based developer Frontier has a nice surprise for you. The studio’s next game is Planet Zoo, a zoo management simulator similar to Planet Coaster (without all the thrills of a theme park), and it’s coming to PC this fall.
Frontier, whose recent work includes Elite Dangerous and Jurassic World Evolution, spent time at real zoos consulting with workers and veterinarians in order to create an accurate zookeeping experience. Special care was taken to create distinctive, lifelike models that make the animals feel authentic. Frontier believes Planet Zoo will have the most realistic animals in any game, ever.
We don’t know a lot of specifics about Planet Zoo just yet, but fans are already creating wishlists for their ideal zoo.
