Blizzard has announced during its BlizzCon conference that StarCraft 2 is going free-to-play starting November 14th. The free version of the game will provide players with access to the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign as well as every co-op commander up through level five. That’s not all. Blizzard is also making StarCraft 2’s online ranked competitive multiplayer available for free and players will be able to access units from all three StarCraft 2 releases.
Players have to keep in mind that they will need to unlock that mode first by gaining 10 “First Wins of the Day” in unranked games or against the computer. Blizzard says this is to preserve the quality and integrity of the ranked experience.
This isn’t the first time that Blizzard has made a StarCraft game free-to-play. Earlier this year, the company released the original StarCraft game for free as well.
Blizzard has also confirmed that players who already own Wings of Liberty will receive the second expansion for the game titled Heart of the Swarm for free.
Those who have been looking forward to playing this iteration of StarCraft just have to wait until November 14th now after which they will be able to play the game for free.
