StarCraft II Is Going Free To Play Starting On November 14

Earlier this year, Blizzard released a remastered version of the original StarCraft with HD visuals and improved online features.

Also at no cost, players will get access to the ranked multiplayer ladder to compete with other StarCraft II players and use any of the units from Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm or the newer Legacy of the Void expansions. Now, the entirety of this aforementioned campaign can be played free of charge. It's a fantastic game, just be ready for some stiff competition if you decide to get serious about multiplayer. Learn more about the game at www.starcraft2.com. Players will be able to tailor the experience, choosing their own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades to suit their playing style throughout the 29-mission campaign.

There's also the fact that Blizzard has since released three full-fledged expansion packs, with the final one, Nova Covert Ops (split into three mini packs), wrapping things up last November.

Those wanting to experience more of the game, can do so by purchasing additional single-player campaigns, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops, individually ($14.99 United States dollars each) or together in the Campaign Collection ($39.99) through the online Blizzard Shop. They're priced at $14.99 each. So if you've ever been craving some RTS action lately, this easily answers the question of which game you should try next. Valve saw a sizable uptick in players - and money - after making the aging Team Fortress 2 free-to-play, as well.




"We spent a lot of time thinking about the right way to do this", Morten said.

"You have helped make it one of the best-selling, highest-rated PC games in history, and your support is why we continue to create new content for it", he told the audience.

Since Blizzard is giving gamers free copies of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty, multiplayer will obviously also be made available to everyone. This includes the campaign for the initial game in the Starcraft 2-saga, Wings of Liberty, as well as the campaign for its sequel Heart of the Swarm if players already own a copy of Wings of Liberty. The Co-op Commanders Raynor, Kerrigan, andArtanis will remain completely free, meaning that you can keep leveling them to your heart's content.
