  • Starcraft II is now free-to-play takes potshot at Battlefront II to prove

The game's new structure was announced back in BlizzCon allowing players full access to the indomitable sci-fi strategy title's original Wings of Liberty campaign which was previously limited to the first few missions.

Starcraft II is available for both Windows and Mac, but before you can get it, you'll need a Blizzard Battle.net account.

As an extra thank you to current Starcraft II players, you'll recieve a unique Eidolon Ghost skin and three portraits commemorating founder status in the game.

If you're looking to experience the more recent story chapters included in the expansions Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void, you'll need to buy these seperately. Get ready to shell out either $14.99 for each or $39.99 for the bundle set.

Free players also need to unlock access to the ranked multiplayer ladder by achieving 10 First Wins of the Day in the unranked mode or versus AI - which Blizzard notes is simply its way of "preserving the quality" of the ranked experience. Signing up can be done with a Facebook account, so anyone who prefers to avoid the tedium of manually inputting details can choose to do that. Next, check your e-mail for the download code.
