Popular streamer and personality in the video gaming community, TotalBiscuit, has long been involved with StarCraft II and now Blizzard is making him a part of the game. TotalBiscuit’s voice is being included as an announcer. To commemorate this new content Blizzard is holding a contest for fans to win a TB Announcer pack for themselves.

TotalBiscuit’s involvement with StarCraft II extends beyond playing the game to hosting, casting and funding his own tournaments and owning his own StarCraft II team. Now he is being memorialized in the game itself as an announcer. The Cynical Brit’s voice will be available with the upcoming patch 3.10.

Hear TB call out standard phrases like “You must construct additional pylons.” or more colorful announcements like “Your SCVs can’t mine when they’re dead.” for each of the available races with his trademark baritone and wit. You can hear previews of the new announcer content on Blizzard’s website here.

After the launch of patch 3.10 gamers can purchase the TB announcer pack from the Collection menu. Five talented StarCraft II players will be given the new content for free by entering a promotional contest Blizzard is holding. To enter the contest you’ll need to capture your best TotalBiscuit impression, post it to social media and email it to Blizzard.

Submissions for the contest began on January 19th and will be open until January 26th. After submissions are closed Blizzard will choose their five favorite TotalBiscuit impressions and award them with TB announcer packs. More details concerning the contest can be found here.

This is the first time Blizzard has featured a prominent community influencer as an Announcer and TotalBiscuit is a perfect fit for StarCraft II. Pricing information for the Announcer pack has not yet been released. The new content will be available with soon to be released patch 3.10.

    “Your SCVs can’t mine when their dead.”

  • Just remember: If you didn’t/don’t support or vote for Hillary Clinton, TB doesn’t want your business or your support.

    I mean, seemed like a pretty ridiculous request, but I guess I respect the man’s preferences enough not to support anything that might make him some money.

    If your framerate drops below 60 he just starts screeching.

  • LimmyWinks

    I felt so bad for Genna. She voted 3rd party and he apparently went off on her. I had a lot of respect for the guy, but he just showed himself to be another piece of shit who lets his politics influence the way he thinks.

  • tBanzai

    I would actually pay for that.

  • Rurik

    Do you have a link to it?

  • Serathis

    Theres a reply video on YT of him apologizing how he went off. He was mighty salty about Obamacare.

  • Serathis

    He won like half of the Starcraft 1 casting contests back in the day.

  • Kris Godwin

    Though unconfirmed, there are reports that his digital likeness will tell you to get cancer and die, as well as abuse your spouse for voting Trump.

    Just a rumour, though.
