Starcraft 2 will be going free to play on November 14

Blizzard is taking StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty's campaign free to play. This includes the campaign for the initial game in the Starcraft 2-saga, Wings of Liberty, as well as the campaign for its sequel Heart of the Swarm if players already own a copy of Wings of Liberty.

Also coming to StarCraft 2 is a new pair of commanders - Mira Han and Matt Horner - and a new co-op mode map called Part and Parcel. The free version of the game will provide players with access to the Wings of Liberty single-player campaign as well as every co-op commander up through level five.

StarCraft players and soon-to-be adopters can look forward to the strategy-based game going free-to-play on November 14th, but there are some details that should be made clear! Of course, we'd have to ridicule you for having such thoughts, because this is Blizzard we're talking about, and its games have some true staying power.

StarCraft II free-to-play action will kick off later this month, Blizzard recently detailed. There will be some limitations to what players can access in the real-time strategy game though, including the need to purchase the title's other expansions. Make sure to log in between November 8 and December 8 to claim it.

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. Online multiplayer and select commanders will also be free. We're an esports website, so I'll not wax lyrical about it, but Starcraft II's singleplayer campaign is one of the best in the business and well worth the price of entry.

Gamers will be able to play the entire campaign of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty for free once November 14 hits. Players who already own all three campaign packs will receive a special thank you in the form of an exclusive Ghost skin plus three new portraits. Company CEO Mike Morhaime revealed the news during BlizzCon 2017's opening ceremony.
