There aren’t many videogames that are still being played ten years after they were released. Even fewer are still being actively supported by their developers at that age. StarCraft 2 is one of the rare exceptions, as Blizzard announced plans to celebrate the big anniversary with, among other things, new announcers to earn, esports reminiscences, and the official rollout of the 5.0 patch—the biggest patch it’s ever had—that adds new achievements, co-op commander talents, and a major upgrade to the map editor.

Every StarCraft 2 mission in the game, including those in the Nova Covert Ops mission pack, has been given brand-new achievements, encouraging players to “relive the story [and] discover new ways to play.” And if that’s not enough to convince you to jump back in, a new Stone announcer—aka Agent X74996R—will be given to players who unlock them all.

Another new announcer, White-Ra—Ukrainian StarCraft 2 pro Aleksey “White-Ra” Krupnyk— will be given to all players who log into the game between July 27 and August 10.
