You can now grab Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty for free

At Blizzcon earlier this month, the publisher announced that StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty would be turning into a free to play game.

The original Wings of Liberty campaign.

New players who are getting into StarCraft II for the first time will be able to play through the entire Wings of Liberty campaign for free. It's zerg-focused and is the second episode.

Current and upcoming Co-op Commanders are available to play for free up to level five, and the level restriction for weekly mutations has been removed.

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. You can access the Ranked Multiplayer ladder by completing 10 "First Wins of the Day" in Unranked Multiplayer or Versus AI modes. You can play with friends in "these extra challenging missions".

You also get access to all multiplayer units in the Unranked Multiplayer and Custom game modes. The Co-op Commanders Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis will remain completely free, meaning that you can keep leveling them to your heart's content.

Don't be surprised if you have a little difficulty getting connected at first, or if the software produces a few unusual error messages - both of which happened to me along the way. You can purchase all of the other campaigns, including the Nova Covert Ops missions, for $15 each. Blizzard is also offering a bundle featuring all of the campaign expansions for $40.

Lastly, if you own all three episodes, you'll be sent a small thank-you gift of a new Ghost skin as well as three new portraits. Will you jump in now that the base game is free?

But what makes today's announcement of SC2 F2P is how bad Blizzard burned EA after yesterday's Star Wars: Battlefront 2 kerfuffle about the cost in credits and gameplay hours to unlock heroes (since changed, by the way).

You can learn all of the details on the official site.
