StarCraft 15th Anniversary Special Mission

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the most popular rts-game in history, StarCraft. To celebrate this Blizzard has released an objective with a reward.

All one has to do is simply to play one game of StarCraft II, in any online mode, against other players.

The reward for doing this is a Feat of Strength achievement, and the classic character portraits bellow will also be unlocked. This offer extends to April 17th.

Blizzard writes in their announcement

“Following its release on March 31, 1998, StarCraft warped millions of us through time and space to the 25th century, where we explored the unruly Koprulu Sector for the first time. We built armies and brought ruin to countless enemy bases as we helped the terrans, protoss, and zerg wage war against each other. The release of StarCraft: Brood War just nine months later saw the Queen of Blades become one of the most iconic villains of all time, and the popularization of professional StarCraft competition in South Korea.

Fast-forward through twelve long, anticipation-filled years to 2010, when StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was finally unleashed upon the world. We guided Jim Raynor’s actions as he fought valiantly against Arcturus Mengsk’s Dominion forces, and cheered on as professional competition, now fondly referred to as StarCraft II eSports, exploded in popularity on a truly global stage. Now, with less than one month behind us since the release ofStarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, we’re faced with not just Kerrigan and her ferocious brood, but the realization that time really does fly when you’re having fun.

Mission Objective:

  • Play one game of StarCraft II in any online mode before 11:59 p.m. PDT on April 17.

Beginning March 31, play one Arcade, Custom, Ranked, Training, Unranked, or Versus A.I. game to earn theStarCraft 15-Year Anniversary Feat of Strength achievement. As soon as you’ve received the achievement, all three portraits will be permanently unlocked in your StarCraft II character profile.

We know what you’re thinking, and no, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke, though it is important to note that Campaign, Offline Custom Games, replays, and observing your friends’ games don’t count toward reward progress, so make sure to play in one of the previously listed online game modes. Furthermore, the Feat of Strength will be awarded only after your game is over, so if you leave that 4v4 ladder match early, the achievement will not be given to you until everyone else has left the game as well.”

As a bonus, Blizzard has released a new classic wallpaper to mark the anniversary.

 

Time to go play.
