The StarCraft II War Chest returns with new skins and a whole new way to earn free goodies as we ramp up to the World Championship Series Finals at BlizzCon 2019. The War Chest is an exciting way to engage with StarCraft II and earn early access to in-game items for all three races at a remarkably low cost. As a bonus, a portion of your War Chest purchase goes toward supporting StarCraft II esports. Read on to learn more about what’s inside, and how you can get in on the action!
How It Works
The Terrans, Protoss, and Zerg each have their own War Chest available for purchase, and you can get access to all three with the Warchest Complete Bundle. You can earn more than 80 new items in total, including unit skins, decals, sprays, emojis, and portraits. You’ll also receive a co-op XP boost for the duration of the War Chest period with your purchase.
The progression path for the War Chest begins with a single unit skin, an exclusive portrait, a decal, and a loading screen race banner. You earn XP toward your progression by playing Versus and Co-op matches, or by watching eligible StarCraft II streams on Twitch to earn experience and unlock the rest of the set.
The War Chest features individual progression paths for each of the game’s races. You can purchase access to each race’s path separately, or get access to all three with the War Chest Complete Bundle. Regardless of your choice, owning a War Chest immediately grants you rewards in StarCraft II and across other Blizzard titles. Simply playing games in StarCraft II—both multiplayer and co-op—will earn you XP that unlocks rewards in each War Chest phase, as they become available over the next three months.
NEW: Free Items for Everyone
This time around, in addition to the War Chest reward paths for each race, you’ll also be able to earn XP towards an additional path that’s free for everyone, which includes Brood War-inspired skins for the Marine, Zealot, and Hydralisk. Any XP earned toward this free path will be automatically applied to any War Chest you purchase.
A portion of all War Chest proceeds will be used to help fund the BlizzCon 2019 StarCraft II prize pool, as well as future StarCraft II esports events.

War Chest Details
Your progress is shared across War Chests, so if you have a Zerg War Chest with five unlocked rewards, any Protoss or Terran War Chest you purchase later will have five rewards unlocked automatically. If you have more than one War Chest, they’ll level up simultaneously.
If you don’t complete your War Chest before the December 5, 2019 deadline, don’t worry: all War Chest skins will become available for purchase on a later date.
