BlizzCon 2017: StarCraft 2 is going free to play

04 November 2017

During his annual address to the community at BlizzCon, Mike Morhaime, the president of Blizzard Entertainment, announced that large portions of the real-time strategy game would be made available free of charge. Moreover, those who already own Wings of Liberty will receive the second expansion, Heart of the Swarm, for free, though they need to log into their account between November 8 and December 8 to claim it. The Starter Edition didn't allow access to ranked games, but the new free-to-play edition will.

All you have to do to unlock it permanently is earn 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked or Versus A.I. play-our way to preserve the quality and integrity of the ranked experience. After becoming the esport of choice for both viewers and players in the early 2010s, the game lost its footing to other multiplayer titles like League of Legends and Dota 2. A move that could, perhaps, bring a new wave of interest to the classic series. There's never been a better time to jump into StarCraft II, now free-to-play.
