Blizzard Entertainment has formally announced that the ever popular Global StarCraft II League will make it to Blizzcon this October. BlizzCon 2011 this year will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California on October 21 and 22, and the finals of the GSL will be held at this same locale too.

The big news behind this is that for the first time, the GSL will be playing outside of Korea. StarCraft has always been very popular as a national sport over in Korea, but this move may very well mark a milestone of the growing popularity of competitive gaming overseas.

BlizzCon is currently sold out, but virtual tickets -- which provide live, comprehensive coverage of the convention -- are available for $39.99 USD at the official website. The GSL finals will be presented for free over the Internet on this site. All that is needed to watch is a free Battle.net account.
