Blizzard Celebrates 30th Anniversary With Digital Goods In Overwatch, Diablo 3, and Others


Blizzard marks its thirty-year anniversary this February. To celebrate its three-decade run as one of the most recognizable brands in gaming, Blizzard is selling three packs of digital downloadable content which includes items from different games. Blizzard will also offer physical memorabilia: a replica of Arthas Helm of Domination.

What Are The Blizzard Games Which Will Have The Anniversary Items?

The Celebration Collection has three different packs in increasing prices, however, if you purchase the higher-priced pack it also includes all of what is included in the cheaper packs. The PC platform will receive the Overwatch and Starcraft items not later than February 18, 2021. The Diablo III items will arrive not later than February 28, 2021. Console versions of Overwatch and Diablo III will have their separate bundle to be announced later by Blizzard.

In this collection, almost all of the Blizzard titles will feature at least a digital item. The first pack dubbed the Essential Pack costing $19.99 will have the following:

Item Game
Moon-Touched Netherwelp World of Warcraft (Not available in Classic)
Trace’s OSV-03 Rogue mount Heroes of the Storm
30th Anniversary Overwatch player icon and spray Overwatch
Five loot boxes Overwatch
Starcraft: Remastered and Starcraft 2 portraits Battle.net account
Portrait and Pet Diablo III (PC only)
10 Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs Hearthstone

The pack will also provide a 15% discount coupon if you choose to purchase from Blizzard Gear Store.

The second pack called Heroic Pack priced at $39.99 will contain all that is offered in the Essential Pack plus the following:

The Epic Pack sold for $59.99 will have all the items in the Essential Pack and Heroic Pack and all of the items below:

All of these packs are only available through September 15, 2021. Although these packs are not going away soon, you must purchase them before they leave because Blizzard is notorious for not offering again its time-limited content in various games.

The limitations of this collection are as follows: the packs can only be bought once per account, the Overwatch items are not automatically available in its console versions but rather you need to link your Blizzard account to your console account in order to redeem them, upgrading to higher tier packs will not re-grant items previously unlocked in the lower-priced packs, and the Tracer Hero mount in the Heroes of the Storm will not be regranted if you already have it in-game.

You can finally own a replica of this iconic headgear

Arthas Helm Of Domination Replica

Warcraft's Arthas is one of the most popular gaming icons. For this 30th Blizzard anniversary celebration, this icon's Helm of Domination will be available for sale on February 19, 2021, at the Blizzard's Gear Store. The 15% discount from the Celebration Collection should come in handy if you ever want to splurge in buying this replica which is fifteen inches in height and nearly seventeen when left at its stand.

When Is The BlizzCon Online?

The availability of the Helm of Domination Replica coincides with the digital version of BlizzCon. BlizzConline is the replacement of the annual gaming convention held by Blizzard to promote its products. Fans can watch BlizzConline for free on the BlizzCon website.

There are no details for the games lineup as of this moment. However, the general schedule was announced by Blizzard: the first day is on February 19 at 2 PM PST / 5 PM EST and the second day will be on February 20 at noon PST / 3 PM EST. Blizzard will offer six channels of programming where developers will take questions from the audience, announce games or features, and run cosplay exhibitions.
