StarCraft’s 20th anniversary celebration will span multiple games

Free in-game goodies throughout March

It doesn’t seem like StarCraft is pushing two decades, but these anniversaries have a way of creeping up on us. If you were at all into the beloved sci-fi strategy game back in 1998, I’m sure you have vivid memories of sneaking in late-night matches and recounting harrowing victories with friends.

Leading up to StarCraft‘s 20th anniversary on March 31, Blizzard plans to give away cosmetic rewards:

  • StarCraft: Remastered – Log in after March 6 for a UI skin.
  • StarCraft II – Log in after March 6 to receive a UI skin for every race and (between March 6 and April 3) a Portrait and Decal.
  • Diablo III – Log in after March 6 for a Battlecruiser pet. (Seriously!)
  • Overwatch – Log in between March 6 and April 3 to get the Sarah Kerrigan Ghost skin for Widowmaker.
  • World of Warcraft – Between March 31 and April 6, /salute either the Zergling, Grunty, Mini Thor, Baneling, or Zeradar to receive the “Salute to StarCraft” Feat of Strength.
  • Heroes of the Storm – Log in between March 27 and April 7 to grab the anniversary portrait for Protoss, Terran, and Zerg.
  • Hearthstone – Between March 21 and March 25, play a StarCraft-inspired Tavern Brawl to get three Kobolds & Catacombs packs.

Blizzard is also preparing streams on March 30 and 31 with some of “your favorite StarCraft personalities,” along with a nostalgic video feature called StarCraft is Life: A Celebration.
