Special Rewards Announced to Celebrate StarCraft’s 20th Birthday




StarCraft, one of the world’s most iconic titles is turning 20 this month – on March 31 to be more precise – and to celebrate this special date, Blizzard Entertainment announced that they will be distributing a whole bunch of free content and rewards for players who log in or perform certain actions across multiple titles during this month and the first week of April.

Overwatch fans will surely be delighted about the new Widowmaker skin, based on the iconic Sarah Kerrigan from the original Starcraft game, before her transformation into the feared Queen of Blades. All players have to do between March 6 and April 3 is to simply log into the game in order to unlock it. With so many players eager to try out the new skin, expect more Widowmakers jumping and running around trying - and perhaps most of the time missing - for that perfect headshot.

Meanwhile, Hearthstone players can receive three free packs from the Kobolds and Catacombs expansion. In order to receive the packs, you need to participate in a StarCraft-themed Tavern Brawl, which will be available for 5 days only - from March 21 to 25, so make sure to mark the date on your calendar!

Also make sure to check out other Blizzard titles that will be also getting in-game rewards, such as StarCraft: Remastered, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, Heroes of the Storm, and World of Warcraft.

Check out the full list of rewards below and what you have to do in order to unlock them:

StarCraft: Remastered: Log in to StarCraft: Remastered after March 6 to receive a commemorative 20th Anniversary UI Skin for StarCraft: Remastered.

StarCraft 2: Log in to StarCraft 2 after March 6 to receive a special UI Skin for each race. Additionally, log in between March 6 and April 3 to receive a Portrait and Decal.

World of Warcraft: Between March 31 and April 6, /salute one of the following StarCraft-themed companion pets — Zergling, Grunty, Mini Thor, Baneling, or Zeradar — to receive the “Salute to StarCraft” Feat of Strength.

But free rewards is not everything Blizzard has prepared for this month: With many StarCraft's top personalities present, a special anniversary stream will be broadcast on Twitch on March 30 and 31, and on Youtube, a documentary called “StarCraft is Life: A Celebration” will be released as a form of homage to the game’s most die-hard fans.
