To celebrate the upcoming November release of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard Australia and New Zealand is hosting a pre-launch event in Sydney.

The event will take place on October 23, and will be attended by World of Warcraft lead game designer Ion Hazzikostas.

Local Warcraft fans are also invited to attend. Free tickets will be available from 2pm AEDT next Tuesday, October 14, but places are strictly limited due to the venue's capacity. When tickets become available, you'll be able to get them through this link.

Hazzikostas will host a presentation on the development of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, and will answer some of the community's questions.

2014 marks the 10th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and the 20th anniversary of the Warcraft franchise.
