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.
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.
Make Nation Wars V a reality! If the community War Chest contribution reaches $200,000, $50,000 will be allotted for the prize pool of Nation Wars V, where countries like South Korea, Canada, and Poland will meet in fierce competition, with a live studio audience for the finals.
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.
