StarCraft II's War Chest Katowice 2019 is here and introduces more than 70 new items to unlock! Here's an overview of what the fourth iteration of War Chest brings to the game:

• Custom Building Skins - For the first time, each race has a full suite of custom building skins themed after the Simulant Zerg, Terran Special Forces, and the Protoss Forge set! Players can also unlock more sprays, emoticons, and exclusive portraits.

• Watch and Earn XP - In addition to players earning progress by playing StarCraft II, they'll also earn progress by watching StarCraft II on Twitch. Players only need to link their Blizzard account to their Twitch account before watching, and streamers need to enable the War Chest extension and stream StarCraft II on Twitch. While watching participating streams, players can claim XP every 20 minutes.

• Co-op XP Boost - Players who purchase War Chest 4 will also receive a co-op XP boost for the duration of the War Chest event period! And as always, 25% of all War Chest purchases go directly to StarCraft II esports. The first $150,000 will be added to the $250,000 Katowice 2019 prize pool and any extra funds will contribute to future StarCraft II esport events.
