StarCraft 2 artwork for all three races

If you have even a tiny bit of interest in the RTS genre, you might be glad to hear that StarCraft 2 has now gone free-to-play! You can experience the entire Terran campaign, play as all three races in casual or competitive multiplayer, mess around in the co-op missions with a variety of different characters, and naturally, see what sort of custom maps the community has created in the Arcade.

You can get a brief overview of all these features, as well as a small glimpse of what they look like in-game, via the recently posted developer video. Have a gander:

If you're wondering whether StarCraft 2 is worth your time, I would say the answer is a definite yes, even if you're not into competitive multiplayer. The campaign alone is well worth a playthrough, because even though the story is dumb the gameplay is downright amazing. Add to that a co-op mode that is surprisingly engaging, and you've got yourself enough content to keep you busy for quite a while. So if you harbor even a bit of interest I'd say you should go for it, it is completely free after all.
