StarCraft II free-to-play model kicks off later this month

Well, you're finally out of excuses, as Blizzard has announced their venerable real-time strategy game will be going free-to-play later this month.

Wings of Liberty will be free to play, and if you already own StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm will be free instead. Kerrigan, Raynor, and Artanis will be free indefinitely, and all other commanders are free up to level 5. The other single-player campaigns for StarCraft II, namely Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops, will be available for purchase with a price tag of $14.99.

StarCraft players and soon-to-be adopters can look forward to the strategy-based game going free-to-play on November 14th, but there are some details that should be made clear!

The award-winning StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty story campaign is free in its entirety. That means even those who have never played the game will be able to experience it from the start.
