At BlizzCon over the weekend Blizzard announced something many have been waiting for, for some time; StarCraft 2 is going free-to-play.
Starting November 14, 2017 players will be able to dive into the expansive world of StarCraft 2 absolutely free and experience the full Wings of Liberty campaign as well as the world-famous competitive multiplayer which will include all of the units and balance updates found in the latest expansion, Legacy of the Void.
Players will also be able to play the game’s popular co-op mode with all co-op commanders available for free.
For those wanting to then further experience the game’s story, they’ll be able to purchase Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void for £12.99 each, as well as Nova Covert Ops for £11.99. Alternatively, players can purchase the entire Campaign Collection for £34.99. Players who already own Wings of Liberty and have yet to purchase Heart of the Swarm can get the campaign for free by simply logging in between November 8 and December 8, 2017
For those who already own any version of StarCraft 2 prior to October 31, 2017 will receive a special Eidolon Ghost Skin and three portraits when the game goes free-to-play.
