StarCraft II: Free to Play Overview

If you picked up Wings of Liberty previously but haven't come back to StarCraft II in a while, we've got good news for you too-if you already own Wings of Liberty, you'll receive the second installment in StarCraft II's campaign, the zerg-focused Heart of the Swarm, for free.

Blizzard also revealed a new StarCraft II co-op commander, which is actually two commanders in one.

Somali-based insurgent group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack and said its fighters remain inside the hotel. Police officer Major Abdullahi Aden told Reuters the auto bomb said: 'They are fighting inside.

This free-to-play version will provide full access to the ranked ladder and free access to every co-op commander up to level 5.

For those who wish to buy Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void, and Nova Covert Ops, they will be available to purchase for $14.99 individually, or $39.99 as a pack.

StarCraft II officially goes free-to-play on Tuesday, November 14. Of course, we'd have to ridicule you for having such thoughts, because this is Blizzard we're talking about, and its games have some true staying power. In an official press release, Blizzard announced that the popular sci-fi, strategy game will be free to play later this month with a slew of new content. And for players who own all three? It's a fantastic game, just be ready for some stiff competition if you decide to get serious about multiplayer. Just be sure to log in sometime between November 8 and December 8 to claim it.

Starting 15 November, players will gain free access to the Wings of Liberty campaign alongside multiplayer modes (balanced by the Legacy of the Void release). We're an esports website, so I'll not wax lyrical about it, but Starcraft II's singleplayer campaign is one of the best in the business and well worth the price of entry. This also includes all units from the expansion campaigns. But Blizzard's generosity doesn't stop there, as everyone will have free access to Unranked and Versus AI modes, and Ranked will be unlocked after 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked and Versus AI.

Fall back this weekend for daylight saving time
Commonly referred to as daylight "savings" time, the correct term is actually daylight saving time. Pollution emissions may consequently also be higher with the clock changes than without.
