Starcraft Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary With Gobs of Cosmetic Items

Starcraft Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary With Gobs of Cosmetic Items”

Diablo 3 is also getting a Battlecruiser pet, World of Warcraft will get new interactions when players /salute the Zergling, Grunty, Mini Thor, Baneling, or Zeradar pets, and a StarCraft Tavern Brawl will be taking place in Hearthstone for the StarCraft 20th anniversary.

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.

StarCraft II players who log in after March 6 will receive a special user interface skin for each of the game's three races. Players logging in from March 6 to April 3 will also acquire a Portrait and a Decal. Both StarCraft: Remastered and "select StarCraft 2 items" will be on sale from March 6 to March 20.

Moving on to Blizzard's other games, Diablo III players who log in after March 6 will acquire Dominion's Revenge, a pet that resembles the Terran's enormous Battlecruiser.

The first StarCraft game seems positively ancient at this point (it was released when Windows gaming and internet multiplayer were relatively young), but its influence on the game industry can be felt to this day.

This Tavern Brawl will be available from March 21 to 25.

Overwatch - Log in to Overwatch between March 6 and April 3 to receive the Sarah Kerrigan Ghost skin for Widowmaker.

With StarCraft having now been a part of the collective consciousness for 20 years, the video game publisher and developer Blizzard has decided that a celebration is in order by giving fans of its games several free crossover items.

Heroes of the Storm - Log in to Heroes of the Storm between March 27 and April 7 to receive a 20th Anniversary Portrait for Protoss, Terran and Zerg.

For example, we'll be getting a documentary on the strategy series on March 31, featuring players and figures from the life of the game, and we'll also get a stream on March 30 featuring more big names reflecting on what it means to them and what's happened in the last two decades.

StarCraft, which Blizzard introduced to the world on March 31, 1998, is soon turning 20 years old.

Are you looking forward to picking up some new loot for your favorite Blizzard games?
