StarCraft 2 developer Blizzard Entertainment will honor player and caster Geoff “iNcontroL” Robinson with a “commemorative bundle” that’s free for all players. Robinson died in July from a pulmonary embolism. He was 33.

Robinson was a long-standing member of the StarCraft community — first competing in StarCraft: Brood War before moving onto StarCraft 2. He played professionally for esports organization Evil Geniuses and hosted StarCraft podcast The Pylon Show with caster Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski.

Blizzard said it will add the bundle, which includes Robinson’s announcer pack (which has been available for purchase since 2017), portrait, and “some additional items” created in his honor, on Oct. 22. The bundle will be available for free for all StarCraft 2 players by logging in to the game. “We’d like to believe that StarCraft was important to Geoff,” Blizzard wrote on its StarCraft 2 blog. “But what we know, beyond any doubt, is that Geoff was important to StarCraft.”

Following his death, Robinson’s friends and family suggested donations be made in his memory to SoCal Bulldog Rescue.
