Blizzard Entertainment Opens Up Starcraft II

Blizzard Entertainment Opens Up Starcraft II”

Blizzard confirms on its site that anyone who already owns that campaign will be granted access to the Heart of the Swarm at no cost. Blizzard announced that StarCraft II will be going Free to Play on November 14th. Commanders Kerrigan, Raynor and Artanis will be completely free as well but all other commanders will only be free up to level five.

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.

Starcraft 2 is going free to play? "It was very important to us that this be accomplished in a way that feels good to our current player base and also attractive to new players or lapsed players who haven't played since Wings of Liberty". If you haven't played StarCraft II yet, well, now's the time. Those who owned StarCraft II before October 31 will also receive an "Eidolon Ghost Skin and three portraits commemorating their founder's status in the game after StarCraft II goes free starting on November 14". Be aware however that you need to log in and claim it before December 8. All you have to do to unlock it permanently is earn 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked or Versus A.I. play.

In terms of new content coming to StarCraft II, at BlizzCon we got an announcement of a new two-in-one co-op commander, Mira Han and Matt Horner.

In addition, everyone will get access to the game's ranked ladder, as well as all the latest units and balance updates through the latest release in the series, Legacy of the Void. Anybody out there still holding out on StarCraft II? According to Morhaime, players can participate in the full multiplayer ladder and in co-op game modes.

You can also purchase any of the campaigns or a seasonal War Chest to gain immediate access to ranked play if you desire.
