StarCraft 2 is going free-to-play on November 14

The interstellar battle between the terran, zerg, and protoss is about to consume even more of the galaxy, as Blizzard Entertainment today announced that the ultimate real-time strategy game will soon be free to play. It offers full access to the relevant story campaign, plus access to the game's competitive online multiplayer, and access to the co-op modes up to level 5 for each co-op commander.

Additional single-player campaigns, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void and Nova Covert Ops can be purchased individually for $21.95 AUD or in a bundle for $59.95 AUD. "It was very important to us that this be accomplished in a way that feels good to our current player base and also attractive to new players or lapsed players who haven't played since Wings of Liberty".

StarCraft II free-to-play action will kick off later this month, Blizzard recently detailed. Those who are not free players can also unlock the ranked ladder by purchasing any campaign or War Chest season. In the seven years since it released in 2010, StarCraft II has awarded over $11M in prizes to competitors.

"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. You have to log in between November 8 and December 8 to claim that upgrade though. The multiplayer mode will enable gamers from around the world to compete against each other.

New multiplayer updates were revealed for StarCraft II as well.

Those who have been looking forward to playing this iteration of StarCraft just have to wait until November 14th now after which they will be able to play the game 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.
