Starcraft 2 will go free-to-play later this month”

As Polygon reports, come November 14th, you'll have access to the entire narrative and if you already own that, you'll get the Protoss-themed Heart of the Swarm campaign for free.

14, gamers will have access to the original Wings of Liberty single-player campaign and every co-op commander up to level 5, for free.

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.

Starcraft 2 is going free to play?

"You have helped make it one of the best-selling, highest-rated PC games in history, and your support is why we continue to create new content for it", he told the audience.

From November 14, the Wings of Liberty story campaign will be absolutely free to play. With the new free-to-play offer, newcomers to the game will have an opportunity to get into the sci-fi action.

"The mission was adapted from a player-created map that won the recent Rock the Cabinet contest, where players submitted their own ideas for a Co-op Mission", Blizzard said after the opening ceremony.

With the StarCraft II saga wrapping up campaign-wise over two years ago, this move is a welcome one. Anybody out there still holding out on StarCraft II?

Blizzard made some big announcements at the BlizzCon 2017. Existing players should log in between November 8th and December 8th to claim the free content.

Included in the free package is access to the Wings of Liberty campaign, ranked ladder multiplayer, and all Co-Op Commanders.

Players have to keep in mind that they will need to unlock that mode first by gaining 10 "First Wins of the Day" in unranked games or against the computer.

For those of you who have already purchased any of the three campaigns as of October 31, we'll soon be sending you a small thank-you in the form of an exclusive Ghost skin as well as three new portraits.
