StarCraft's 20th anniversary is approaching, and Blizzard is celebrating with new content spread across the developer's titles.

March 31 is the exact date of StarCraft's anniversary, but Blizzard will be celebrating all month. Many of the rewards will be handed out simply for logging into the respective games. Overwatch fans will be pleased to find a new Widowmaker skin when logging into Overwatch between March 6 and April 3.

The new skin is based on Sarah Kerrigan before she transformed into the Queen of Blades. It's pretty similar to Widowmaker's Nova skin—Kerrigan was also a Ghost—but with Kerrigan's distinct hair and armor.

StarCraft: Remastered, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone will all receive new, free content as well.

An anniversary stream on Twitch will run on March 30 and 31 with many of StarCraft's top personalities. Blizzard will also release StarCraft is Life: A Celebration on YouTube, which celebrates StarCraft's biggest fans—those who've stuck with the game throughout its 20-year history.
