It's tough to believe StarCraft 2 came out way back in 2010. But, gamers who already own that campaign won't be left out in the cold, because the second campaign, Heart of the Swarm, will be given to players who already own Wings of Liberty. Just be sure to log in sometime between November 8 and December 8 to claim it. 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. All competitive multiplayer content will also be unlocked for free.

You'll be able to tackle these extra challenging missions with your friends right away. Additional single-player campaigns, and co-op commanders can be unlocked via the Blizzard Shop.

First off, the entire StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty single-player campaign will be playable for free. The news was formally announced by Blizzard during the 2017 Blizzcon opening ceremonies.
