At BlizzCon today, Blizzard announced that StarCraft II is going free to play. You will even get free access to every co-op Commander in the game up to level five, including Kerrigan, Raynor, and Artanis.

The entire Wings of Liberty campaign is free, but the single-player Heart of the swarm, Nova Covert Ops and Legacy of the Void campaigns are available separately for $14.99 each or $39.99 when purchased as a bundle in the Campaign Collection.

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. Of course, we'd have to ridicule you for having such thoughts, because this is Blizzard we're talking about, and its games have some true staying power.

The original Wings of Liberty campaign - Experience the original epic campaign that kicked off the StarCraft II saga!

The game, originally released in 2010, will be going free-to-play starting on November 14, although some aspects will remain premium only.




StarCraft 2 itself is a sci-fi space opera about three warring races facing an intergalactic threat, played as a real-time strategy game.

If you haven't been paying attention to the StarCraft world lately, it may be easy to think that StarCraft II - the game that came out seven years ago - may be winding down. But, that deal is only available from November 8th to December 8th.

Included in the free package is access to the Wings of Liberty campaign, ranked ladder multiplayer, and all Co-Op Commanders.

Blizzard made some big announcements at the BlizzCon 2017.

Gamers will be able to play the entire campaign of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty for free once November 14 hits. But Blizzard's generosity doesn't stop there, as everyone will have free access to Unranked and Versus AI modes, and Ranked will be unlocked after 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked and Versus AI. Players who already own all three campaign packs will receive a special thank you in the form of an exclusive Ghost skin plus three new portraits. This also includes all units from the expansion campaigns.
