Blizzard Entertainment deployed today StarCraft: Remastered Patch 184.108.40.20688 (171MB). The most notable additions to the StarCraft: Remastered game are the Orc-themed console UI for those who purchased the Warcraft III: Reforged game; and change of player color-code options.
Blizzard Entertainment will publish a new hardcover collecting the most recent StarCraft II War Chest comics, under the Blizzard Legends label. The hardcover is slated to ship on March 17, 2020; but pre-orders are now open for the StarCraft: WarChest – Shadow Wars: The Complete Comic Collection
For past novels, comics, and audiobooks visit the Blizzplanet Store.
Blizzard Entertainment deployed today a 449MB patch to introduce the Nation Wars 2019 Complete Bundle. Read the StarCraft II 4.10.2 Patch Notes.
Some of the StarCraft novels have been released as StarCraft Audiobooks over the years, which you can listen to at home, in the car, or while traveling.
It seems more StarCraft audiobooks might be coming at some point. For example, two books of the Dark Templar trilogy are yet to be released as an audiobook. Follow @blizzplanetcom for updates. I’ll share when those become available.
Trivia: Neil Kaplan (Tychus voice actor) was hired to narrate some of the StarCraft audiobooks: Liberty’s Crusade; I, Mengsk; and Heaven’s Devils. Christie Golden narrated her own novel The Dark Templar, Firstborn.

Blizzard Entertainment deployed the StarCraft: Remastered PTR 1.22.3 (build 5653-ptr) to test a few changes that add quality of life experiences to players. This PTR patch is around 8.4GB in size.
This is what Matt Sherman posted in the StarCraft: Remastered forums:
The Swann: Machined Bundle is now available to Twitch Prime members for free. Simply claim the Gift, and it will be added to your StarCraft II account next time you login into the game.
Lead engineer Grant Davies announced a new StarCraft: Remastered PTR is coming soon.
Currently, StarCraft ignores keyboard input if the mouse is held down. The community has asked Blizzard to change this. So the PTR will provide Blizzard’s proposed answer to this problem.
Twitch Prime sent a newsletter to all its members to remind that the Abathur: Evolved Bundle ends on April 10th.
In addition, Twitch Prime took the moment to inform their upcoming plans for StarCraft II. New loot bundles will be announced soon for Swann (April) and Vorazun (May).
I added a video, at the bottom of this page, showing all the perks of this bundle from within the StarCraft II game’s Collection tab.
