Blizzard toasts 30 years of gaming and geekery in new anniversary merchandise collection

Blizzard is toasting 30 years of gaming and geekery, as well as the launch of the first BlizzConline, with the release of a swathe of new merchandise this month across the Blizzard Gear Store.

New 30th Anniversary themed merchandise will lead a roll-out that includes limited edition pins, exclusive puzzles, art prints, gaming desk accessories, journals, outerwear and more. All of the products will be adorned with the 30th Anniversary Logo and include heroes and scenes from some of Blizzard’s most iconic games.

Announced earlier this month, Blizzard is also release an Artha Helm of Domination Blizzard Exclusive Replica, a special launch that taps directly into the hardcore fan base for its popular World of Warcraft franchise. Standing at over 15 inches in height, the launch is billed as one of the firm’s most premium collectables.

Blizzard VP of global consumer products, Matt Beecher, said: “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate fans that have spent the last three decades with us than with a special collection that commemorates our shared journey.”

Fans will also be able to dive into the worlds and lore of Hearthstone, Overwatch, and World of Warcraft with new literary releases coming later this year. New launches will include The Art of Hearthstone Volume IV: Year of the Raven, The Art of Overwatch Volume 2, and World of Warcraft: Folk & Fairy Tales of Azeroth.

An official World of Warcraft Cookbook – World of Warcraft: New Flavours of Azeroth – will also be launched.

These new titles will be available for pre-order via the Blizzard Gear Store starting February 19.
