Iconic PC real-time strategy game, StarCraft II:Wings of Liberty, is going free-to-play seven years after its release. Now, the entirety of this aforementioned campaign can be played free of charge. Once you achieve 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked or Versus A.I., you'll gain access.
"For a lot of people, when they hear 'free-to-play, ' they think that means we're introducing a bunch of new microtransactions, secondary currency, and things like that", Morten said. A move that could, perhaps, bring a new wave of interest to the classic series. Specifically, according to a Blizzard blog post, that includes the original Wings of Liberty single-player campaign, every co-op commander, and competitive multiplayer. Co-op mode will be immediately accessible, though only Raynor, Kerrigan, andArtanis will be unlocked for free; all the other commanders will still require purchases to upgrade past level 5. This free-to-play change will likely be the most significant step in preserving StarCraft 2's relevance yet.
Not too long ago, some Battle.net owners received free copies of Starcraft 2 for seemingly no reason, but most gamers weren't among the lucky few who got these copies. Online multiplayer and select commanders will also be free. Log in between November 8 and December 8 and Blizzard will give you Heart of the Swarm, the zerg-centric second part, for your trouble.
