StarCraft II War Chest Phase 1 Available today
Blizzard Entertainment will sell new skins for each StarCraft II race each month (starting today at 6pm EST/3pm PST) until all phases are unlocked. 25% of the sales will go to supporting eSport prize pools.
UNLOCK INTERGALACTIC TREASURE
War Chest: BlizzCon 2017 introduces more than 70 new items (spread across three phases), including sprays, emoticons, exclusive portraits, and StarCraft II’s first army-wide skins, all for a steeply discounted price.
Each War Chest begins with a single unit skin and an exclusive portrait. Additional skins are divided into three phases, and can be unlocked by playing Multiplayer or Co-op matches during or after the corresponding phase, until by the end of the challenge you have a full set. Your initial purchase also grants awesome rewards in other Blizzard titles. Check out the full details here!
SUPPORT STARCRAFT II ESPORTS
25% of all War Chest purchases go directly to StarCraft II esports. The first $200K will be added to the $500K BlizzCon 2017 prize pool, with any surplus contributing to StarCraft II event production.

War Chest: BlizzCon 2017 Details
The purchase period ends on October 4th, after which you will have one month of Bonus XP to complete your War Chest and finish unlocking all rewards.
Progress is applied retroactively to newly purchased War Chests. If you have unlocked 5 rewards from the Zerg War Chest, and you purchase a Protoss War Chest, you will immediately unlock 5 Protoss rewards.
Progress is shared across War Chests, so if you purchase more than one, you can work on them all simultaneously.
If you don’t complete your War Chest before the November 4th deadline, don’t worry: all War Chest skins will become available for purchase at full price on a later date.
In addition, each phase will also unlock a new StarCraft II digital comics titled Shadow Wars
Years after the events of Legacy of the Void and Nova Covert Ops, it seemed that peace had come to the Koprulu sector at last . . . But even when leaders understand each other, their warriors on the ground do not. Hidden in the shadows, their battles rage on.
