Don’t have StarCraft: Brood War and want to participate in the tournament? You’re in luck! Blizzard has launched a new online store which now offers most of Blizzard’s games for download. For 14.99$, the StarCraft Anthology, featuring StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War, can be downloaded straight into your computer.

Creating an account for the store also allows those of you who own physical versions of Blizzard’s games to register them on the site and have digital access to them indefinitely, from any computer.

Another bonus to creating an account, even if you’re not planning on purchasing a Blizzard game in the future, is the beta-test eligibility. Signing up and requesting to join the beta-test lottery gives you a chance to participate in future Blizzard beta-tests – perhaps even for StarCraft 2!
