Everyone loves a bit of digital tat, from exclusive skins to special lines of dialogue and PlayStation 4 themes. It’s all great, especially because it doesn’t then clutter up your shelves. Anyway, it’s the 20th anniversary of StarCraft on 31st March, and Blizzard are in the mood to giveaway some digital tat to celebrate!
If you hop into StarCraft: Remastered or StarCraft II in the next month, you’ll unlock some special UI themes, while over in Diablo III, you’ll receive the Dominion’s Revenge as a pet, which is a Battlecruiser that’ll follow you around. World of WarCraft players can go and /salute one of the StarCraft themed pets – Zergling, Grunty, Mini Thor, Baneling, or Zeradar – to get a “Salute to StarCraft” feat of Strength, and Heroes of the Storm players can get some StarCraft themed portraits. Play Hearthstone to get three Kobolds & Catacombs packs for free, and logging into Overwatch will get you a Sarah Kerrigan Ghost skin for Widowmaker.
Head over to the anniversary page for the various dates and times, and come the end of the month on 30th and 31st of March, there will be some special streams to watch of famous StarCraft personalities playing the game and reminiscing about one of Blizzard’s greatest hits.
