StarCraft & StarCraft: Brood War Now Available To Play For Free
StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War (“Brood War”) have just been updated with Version 1.18, which means that Blizzard Entertainment’s classic sci-fi Real Time Strategy (“RTS”) and its award-winning expansion are now free to download and play. This update includes a number of bug fixes and feature updates, including an observer mode and improved anti-cheat measures. A full rundown and a link to the free client is available here.
In addition to the above new features, Version 1.18 sets the stage for the highly anticipated StarCraft: Remastered upgrade. This upgrade will include 4K UltraHD graphics, remastered dialog and audio, and a host of other new improvements to StarCraft and Brood War, while maintaining the strategic gameplay that has made the Blizzard game a classic for nearly 20 years. Even better, the Remastered game will be fully compatible with the free client, which allows those who get the upgrade to be able to play with those using the free client.
