StarCraft 2 is going to be free to play later this year

Starcraft 2, one of the major games behind the current esports renaissance, will go free to play after more than half a decade on the market, Blizzard announced at BlizzCon earlier today. Now, the entirety of this aforementioned campaign can be played free of charge. All you have to do to unlock it permanently is earn 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked or Versus A.I. play.

"We know "free-to-play" can mean a lot of things for different games, but we're here to assure you that when we say that we're making StarCraft II free-to-play, we really mean it", the company wrote in a blog post. With the new free-to-play offer, newcomers to the game will have an opportunity to get into the sci-fi action. A move that could, perhaps, bring a new wave of interest to the classic series. Commanders Kerrigan, Raynor and Artanis will be completely free as well but all other commanders will only be free up to level five.
