Blizzard is taking StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty's campaign free to play.

Blizzard has also confirmed that players who already own Wings of Liberty will receive the second expansion for the game titled Heart of the Swarm for free.

Free to play is here, bringing a wealth of options for new and returning StarCraft II players. Purchase required to advance a Co-op Commander beyond level five-with the exception of Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis, which are free to play up to and beyond level five.

The original Wings of Liberty single player campaign from 2010 is playable as well as every co-op commander and competitive multiplayer content.

Australian Senate President Stephen Parry has said he will resign, after confirming he is a United Kingdom dual citizen. Senior Turnbull government members and Labor have poured cold water on calls for a "citizenship audit" of all MPs.

"You have helped make it one of the best-selling, highest-rated PC games in history, and your support is why we continue to create new content for it", he told the audience.

Access to the complete 12 hour "Wings of Liberty" campaign for all players. Sadly, we do not know if the Legacy of the Void campaign will be given to players who own the other two campaigns. Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals created to ease players into the basics of multiplayer strategies. Users just need to log-in to Battle.net between November 8 and December 8 to claim it. They are now making an early appearance at BlizzCon 2017 along with a new co-op mission called Part and Parcel.

BlizzCon is an annual convention held by Blizzard Entertainment to promote its major franchises such as Warcraft, StarCraft, Hearthstone, and Overwatch. But in a seeming effort to combat account abuse, players will first have to achieve 10 game-of-the-day victories in either the unranked ladder or against the game's AI, before they can access the multiplayer ladder.

You can also purchase any of the campaigns or a seasonal War Chest to gain immediate access to ranked play if you desire.
