Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty is free now!

Beginning today, November 14, PC players can jump into Blizzard's popular strategy game at no cost.

Blizzard has unveiled a series of new commercials to coincide with StarCraft II now being available in a free-to-play structure, with the commercial taking a cheeky approach as a father and son discuss establishing a "legacy" in the best way possible - through playing StarCraft. Those who are total newcomers to StarCraft 2 will receive the game's first campaign - the terran-focused Wings of Liberty - for free.

Access to the ranked ladder will become available after earning 10 "first wins of the day" in Unranked or after any purchase of expansion content. Co-op commanders also have a max level of 5 in the F2P model, with the exception of Raynor, Kerrigan and Artanis.

'A cracking climax to the StarCraft 2 saga, Legacy of the Void combines the best ever StarCraft multiplayer experience with what's arguably the strongest of the three campaigns'. So yep, despite going free-to-play, Starcraft II won't feature any extra currencies or microtransactions. Then, you need to head to the Battle.net Shop and search for the game. Incidentally, the new Commander Han and Horner, which is a team made up of Mira Han and Matt Horner, are also making their debut at the same time as the free-to-play launch. Otherwise, you're going to need to sign up for one via Blizzard's registration page. From there the client will complete the Starcraft II installation.

After the game was installed, you're good to go. If you wish to access the ranked play earlier, you can purchase any campaign or the War Chest and gain immediate access to the ladder. You'll get Heart of the Swarm simply by logging in between November 8 and December 8.

As for the rest, all the multiplayer units will be accessible in the Unranked Multiplayer and Custom games.
