Celebrate StarCraft's 15th birthday with retro portraits for SC2

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 31, 2013 7:00am PDT

StarCraft turns 15 today and, to celebrate the big day, Blizzard will hand out special retro portraits to StarCraft II players. The faces from the original game's box art, once so fearsome and stunningly realistic but now a bit goofy and so plainly CG, can grace your SC profile if you play at least one online game in the next few weeks.

The three classic icons will be unlocked for anyone who earns the 15th anniversary Feat of Strength achievement, simply by finishing one single game online from todayup until 11:59pm PDT on April 17, Blizzard explains in a blog post.

The round can Arcade, Custom, Ranked, Training, Unranked, Versus A.I., whatever, you just need to finish it. Then you too can look too cool for school, because oh mercy I was in school when StarCraft came out I remember it I was so young, so sweet, so naïve.

March 31, 1998. Where has all the time gone? Our skeletons will escape soon.
