Blizzard Launches Digital Download Store With Warcraft, StarCraft

World of Warcraft developer Blizzard is now offering digital downloads of its catalog titles at its online store, with an option to download previously purchased versions of Warcraft III and StarCraft Anthology using a valid CD key.
Irvine based developer Blizzard Entertainment has launched a digital download store to offer three of its PC real-time strategy titles -- Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III Expansion Set: The Frozen Throne, and StarCraft Anthology. Thus far the store is limited to the three titles, but Blizzard is allowing users to register CD keys for previous Blizzard releases, including Diablo II, though downloads of that game have yet to be added to the store. At the same time, Blizzard has launched a new Blizzard Beta Lottery, a program with which players can submit their Blizzard accounts for a chance to be added on the a list of invites for public beta tests. No games have yet been announced for upcoming betas, but, according to the most recent reports, the company is currently working on StarCraft II and an unannounced MMO. Blizzard's World of Warcraft and its following expansions haven't been announced for the store, but still be found on third-party digital download sites.
