Blizzard's New Online Store Offers Game Downloads
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 13 comments

Blizzard Entertainment has taken the wraps off its newly redesigned Official Blizzard Store. The overhaul includes the introduction of Blizzard Accounts which will allow users to download full versions of Blizzard games after they have entered the CD-Keys, and serve as a place for fans to sign up for future beta tests. In addition to the new accounts the store also includes a more complete offering of Blizzard licensed products, from board games to strategy guides.

1) Your Blizzard Account is now the main place for you to enter Blizzard's Beta-Test Eligibility Lists. So make sure you setup an account and tick the box inside your Email settings to enter yourself into the Blizzard Beta Lottery.

2) A major new function now available is the ability to download copies of Blizzard games that you have previously purchased. You need to log into your account page and then go to the Games tab. Inside you'll be able to input the CD-Keys from StarCraft, StarCraft Battlechest, StarCraft Anthology, Warcraft III, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, Warcraft Battlechest, Diablo II, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, Diablo II Battlechest (Diablo II downloads will be made available soon) or World of WarCraft, though WoW client downloads are still handled through the WoW website.

The Store now also features most of the Blizzard Licensed Products, including: Board Games, Figurines, Novels, Strategy Guides, and Misc. other products. A new StarCraft Anthology was released, basically a digital download of SC & SC:BW, without the added expense for the BattleChest that includes Strategy Guides.
Follow the links below to check out all the new features.
