StarCraft II will be free to play starting November 14

StarCraft II will be free to play starting November 14

During his annual address to the community at BlizzCon, Mike Morhaime, the president of Blizzard Entertainment, announced that large portions of the real-time strategy game would be made available free of charge. Hell, it's about time. Current players may not even notice the difference even as the game becomes substantially more approachable for new folks.

Players who already bought the Wings of Liberty campaign will be getting the Heart of the Storm campaign for free instead. Sadly, we do not know if the Legacy of the Void campaign will be given to players who own the other two campaigns.

StarCraft II officially goes free-to-play on Tuesday, November 14. Future Co-op Commanders will also be released for free until they reach level 5.

StarCraft II remains as one of the biggest, most successful, and most popular RTS games on the market.

Players who already owned any version of StarCraft II prior to October 31 will receive a special Eidolon Ghost skin and three portraits commemorating their founder's status in the game when StarCraft II goes free-to-play. Personally I'm hoping for Diablo 3 and eventually the rest of Starcraft 2.

"We will also continue to offer premium upgrades like announcer packs, special skins, and new Co-op Commanders to enhance your StarCraft II experience in a number of different ways", says Blizzard.

In addition, players will gain free access to Kerrigan, Raynor, and Artanis Co-Op Commanders completely for free. But, that deal is only available from November 8th to December 8th.

Experience the original epic campaign that kicked off the StarCraft II saga!

If you enjoy what you see in StarCraft II, you can grab Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops individually for $14.99 or as a bundle for $39.99. Those with a desire for competition can unlock the ranked ladder for free simply by playing and winning games.
