StarCraft II is going free-to-play, Blizzard announced today during the BlizzCon 2017 keynote. On November 14, you’ll be able to download the Wings of Liberty campaign without paying a cent, getting access to both single- and multiplayer for free.


If you already have Wings, you’ll get a free copy of the game’s first expansion, Heart of the Swarm. Otherwise you’ll still have to buy that and Legacy of the Void, as well as any extra co-op commanders or voice packs you want.

This follows in the footsteps of the original StarCraft, which went free earlier this year as Blizzard released StarCraft: Remastered. Does this mean we’re getting StarCraft II: Remastered? ...probably not.


Not a surprise in the slightest SC2 has being dying a slow death for a while now. The player base just keeps shrinking at the meta has seemed stale for months. I gave up about six months ago and haven’t looked back. Also does this mean all F2P players get Legacy of the Void multiplayer or are they stuck in WoL?
