In case you didn’t know yet, Blizzard is going to make the original StarCraft free to download and play
Free games, whoo-hoo!
Looks like Blizzard is really hell-bent on introducing one of their classics, the iconic RTS StarCraft to a new audience as together with confirming plans for the StarCraft: Remaster, the video game titan also plans to re-release the original StarCraft game, this time, for free.
While we are not sure if it’s going to be free to grab forever or only for a certain period of time, Blizzard is definitely going to slash 100% of the game’s pricing and it will happen soon, later this week to be exact once the Patch 1.18 for StarCraft: Broodwar goes live.
If you’re planning to grab the original StarCraft once it goes free, then we suggest that you go for the StarCraft Anthology pack on the Blizzard shop as it already includes the base game, StarCraft, and its titular (and only) expansion, StarCraft: Brood War.
