Blizzard during its BlizzCon conference, announced that StarCraft 2 is going free-to-play starting on November 14th. The free version of the game will give players access to the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign and every co-op commander up through level five.
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. If you’ve wanted to play, but not pay, now is your chance to check it out. The 14th is nearly here.
You will need to unlock that multiplayer mode first by gaining 10 “First Wins of the Day” in unranked games or against the computer. This is to preserve the quality and integrity of the ranked experience according to Blizzard. Earlier this year, the company released the original StarCraft game for free as well, so now fans can enjoy both without paying.
Blizzard 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. You just have to wait until November 14th now, and at that time you will be able to play the game for free as much as you want. Great news for fans.
