Does Not Include StarCraft II’s Expansions
At BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard announced that StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will be free from November 14th. 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. But, Kerrigan, Raynor, and Artanis will be uncapped for free!
Besides that, Blizzard will be offering the game’s online ranked competitive multiplayer mode for free with access to units from all three StarCraft II releases after unlocking the mode by achieving 10 “First Wins of the Day” in unranked games or against the computer.
Here’s an overview trailer of the announcement below:
For players who already own Wings of Liberty, Blizzard will be offering the second expansion for StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm, for free instead. And for players who own all three? Well according to an interview with Gamespot, a Blizzard PR rep says they’ll be offering a digital reward, “ I think they’re calling it the founder’s gift. It’s like a portrait skin.”
Get your Zerg rush on when StarCraft II goes F2P for PC on November 14th.
