Blizzard has just gotten into the digital distribution game with their updated online store. Currently available for online purchase are:

  • StarCraft Anthology (includes the original game and Brood War)
  • WarCraft III
  • WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne

Available shortly will be Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. None of Blizzard's games older than StarCraft are currently available this way and any game that never had a CD-Key will not be available. No Diablo, sorry.

What's most interesting about this new store is that gamers can register and account and link their original CD-Keys from their retail copy and get access to the digital download version (both PC & Mac). I tried this with StarCraft and after a 30-minute download using Blizzard's Updater program, the game installed.

You'll need to enter the CD-Key as usual, but the website stores the key for access from anywhere. The best part of the whole process is that the game is already patched to the most recent version.

Go ahead and register because it'll also enter you into a Beta Key Lottery for upcoming Blizzard games. We're assuming this means StarCraft II and World of WarCraft: Wrath of the Lich King.
