The Wings of Liberty campaign expansion will be entirely free, and if you already own it, then you will gain immediate access to the Heart of the Swarm campaign. You have to log in between November 8 and December 8 to claim that upgrade though.

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. That said, exempt from the level five limit will be Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis, who you'll be able to level up however high you wish, for free.

Blizzard is keen to push StarCraft, they have remastered the original, made the original version free, and now StarCraft 2 will also be free.

The announcement came at Blizzard's annual Blizzcon in Anaheim, a video game convention held by the company for its major franchises Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch.




Wings of Liberty received an excellent rating in PCMag's 2010 review, nabbing props for its "wonderful story and character development", "great soundtrack", and "lasting appeal".

This means that both of the most critically acclaimed games in the Starcraft franchise-Brood War and Starcraft 2-are now readily available to the public without any cost whatsoever.

Experience the original epic campaign that kicked off the StarCraft II saga! In order to "preserve the quality and integrity of the ranked experience", to permanently unlock this feature, you'll need to earn 10 First Wins of the Day in either Unranked or Versus A.I. play. All competitive multiplayer content will also be unlocked for free. If you have purchased all three campaigns as of October 31, Blizzard will be sending you an exclusive Ghost skin and three new portraits, as a thank you.

If you enjoy what you see in StarCraft II, you can grab Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops individually for $14.99 or as a bundle for $39.99.
