Blizzard Celebrates 30th Anniversary With Digital Goods for Overwatch, Hearthstone, and More
Blizzard is celebrating its 30th anniversary this February. While the company is promising more surprises at this year’s free BlizzCon Online, Blizzard is getting the festivities started early with a series of Celebration packs with in-game goods for all Blizzard games like Overwatch and Hearthstone, as well as offering an exclusive Arthas Helm of Domination replica.
The helm measures almost 17-inches tall when placed on its stand and will be available beginning February 19 in the online BlizzardGear store. Check out the gallery below to see images:

As part of the Celebration Collection, there are three different “Packs” of in-game goods that are available now in the Blizzard Shop. The more premium packs will include all the goods in the previous packs, but with added bonuses.
The first is the Essentials Pack which comes with:
- a Moon-Touched Netherwhelp pet in World of Warcraft
- Tracer’s OSV-03 Rogue mount with Tracer Hero in Heroes of the Storm
- 30th Anniversary Overwatch player icon and spray plus five loot boxes
- StarCraft 2 and StarCraft: Remastered portraits
- 10 Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs in Hearthstone
- A pet and portrait in Diablo 3

The next tier, Heroic Pack, comes with everything in the Essentials Pack plus:
- Snowstorm mount in World of Warcraft
- Raynhardt Legendary skin in Overwatch
- Random Madness at the Darkmoon Faire Legendary card
- Diablo 3 wings
And finally, the Epic Pack includes everything in the other packs, plus:
- 30 days of World of Warcraft game time
- 5 Golden Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs in Hearthstone
- 3 Golden Loot Boxes in Overwatch
- Diablo 3 Transmog Items
Purchasing any of the three Celebration Packs will also nab you a 15% discount code for the Blizzard Gear Store, which is usually stocked with new items during BlizzCon.
The COVID-19 pandemic prevented Blizzard from hosting a live BlizzCon last year. Instead, Blizzard will host a completely digital BlizzCon later this month and you can watch the entire opening ceremony right here on IGN. Blizzard typically reserves its biggest announcements for BlizzCon, so expect game news, reveals, and more.
