StarCraft II released Patch 4.10.0 which adds the War Chest: BlizzCon 2019. Aside from this new addition, the patch fixes up some bugs with the Co-op Missions and the Versus.

As Blizzard starts to ramp up toward the World Championship Series Finals at BlizzCon 2019, War Chests are making a return. This is a way to engage with StarCraft II players and get early access to in-game items for all three races at a surprisingly low cost. Players get to earn at least 80 items, which include decals, emojis, portraits, skins, and sprays. In addition, players also receive a co-op XP boost during the duration of the War Chest.

In general, these are what players can get with the War Chest:

  • Play StarCraft II or watch participating streamers on Twitch to unlock XP for the War Chest and gain access to over 70 new items including army-wide skins, sprays, emoticons, exclusive portraits, and a Co-op XP boost.
  • Purchasing the War Chest Complete Bundle grants you a special random race loading screen in StarCraft II, plus a Tal’darim Probe Pet in Diablo III, a Hearthstone Classic Card Pack, and a Heroes of the Storm rare Loot Chest. In addition, purchasing any War Chest Skin Bundle will grant you immediate access to Ranked play.
  • Throughout the duration of the War Chest: BlizzCon 2019, players will be able to unlock free rewards, including classic Brood War-inspired skins for the Marine, Zealot, and Hydralisk, with no additional purchase necessary.
