Arguably one of the most popular eSports games of this generation, StarCraft has been a household name for many years now ever since its release in 1998 with two expansions – Insurrection and Brood War. Developed and published by Blizzard, the only way to play StarCraft and its DLCs (downloadable content) is through Blizzard’s own gaming platform, Battle.net. You will also have to purchase the game to play it exclusively on the platform.
However, all that has now changed as StarCraft is now available absolutely free! Available on both PC and Mac, Blizzard has just released the first StarCraft game along with its expansions for free, which you can find out more about here. This is a good way to gain new fans and gamers who never had a chance to play StarCraft because it didn’t make sense to purchase a game that came out almost 20 years ago.
This will also be a good throwback for avid fans of the RTS game as Blizzard also recently announced the remastered version of the original StarCraft with up-to-date graphics, revised dialogue and audio, slated for a release sometime in 2017.
