Blizzard Entertainment announced Friday that its real-time strategy game StarCraft II will be free-to-play beginning November 14. To be clear, this isn't just the multiplayer mode, but this upcoming free version of the RTS game will let players access the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign, and every co-op commander up through level five.
StarcraftII'sFree to Play patch will go live on November 14th. The developer announced its plans to release the game and its first campaign for free at BlizzCon 2017 this week, a move that will open StarCraft 2 up to a broader audience.
Been meaning to try out StarCraft II for the past seven years?
Wings of Liberty received an excellent rating in PCMag's 2010 review, nabbing props for its "wonderful story and character development", "great soundtrack", and "lasting appeal". Be aware however that you need to log in and claim it before December 8. Blizzard is a household name for most PC gamers with StarCraft II, Diablo 3, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch all topping "hours played" charts for millions of gamers both casually and competitively around the world.
Kerrigan, Raynor, and Artanis are completely free, and all other Commanders are free up to level 5. But in a seeming effort to combat account abuse, players will first have to achieve 10 game-of-the-day victories in either the unranked ladder or against the game's AI, before they can access the multiplayer ladder. This is good thinking, because if people can easily sign up for a free game, cheating and / or trolling is an inevitability (we're watching you, Google engineers!).
Those who already own StarCraft II will receive a special Eidolon Ghost skin and three portraits commemorating their founder's status in the game. This ensures that the quality and integrity of the ranked experience is intact. Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops will cost $14.99 each.
