StarCraft 2 Is Going Free-To-Play

StarCraft 2 Is Going Free-To-Play

StarCraft 2 is going free-to-play, Blizzard announced today during the BlizzCon 2017 keynote. On November 14, you’ll be able to download the Wings of Liberty campaign without paying a cent, getting access to both single- and multiplayer for free.

If you already have Wings, you’ll get a free copy of the game’s first expansion, Heart of the Swarm. Otherwise you’ll still have to buy that and Legacy of the Void, as well as any extra co-op commanders or voice packs you want.

This follows in the footsteps of the original StarCraft, which went free earlier this year as Blizzard released StarCraft: Remastered. Does this mean we’re getting StarCraft 2: Remastered? … probably not.
