The Shadow Wars saga continues with three brand-new comics, as conflict between disparate forces of terran, zerg, and protoss reaches a boiling point on the fringes of the Koprulu sector.

War Chest: Katowice 2018 introduces more than 70 new items (spread across three phases), including sprays, emoticons, exclusive portraits, and 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]!
25% of all War Chest purchases go directly to StarCraft II esports. The first $150K will be added to the $250K Katowice 2018 prize pool, with any surplus contributing to StarCraft II event production.
If the community War Chest contribution reaches $200,000, each season of regional Challenger competition will receive a $2,000 prize pool boost. Each season of Challenger, an additional $2,500 War Chest bounty will be added to the payout in the region with the most players in the latest WCS Circuit event’s Round of 8.
- The purchase period ends on March 2nd, 2018, after which you will have 28 days 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 March 30, 2018 deadline, don’t worry: all War Chest skins will become available for purchase at full price on a later date.
