Blizzard’s StarCraft franchise has managed to establish itself as one of the classic RTS games in gaming history, having helped to launch the careers of many pro gamers who made big names for themselves while competing in StarCraft tournaments from back in the day. If you’re looking to relive the action or maybe see what the fuss was all about, now you can.
In the latest Patch 1.18 that has been released, Blizzard has announced that both the original StarCraft and Brood Wars expansion are now free for download. If you don’t remember, last month Blizzard announced that they would be launching StarCraft Remastered which is basically an updated version of the game with newer graphics and new multiplayer options.
Alongside the announcement they also confirmed their plans to make the original game and its expansion free. In addition to making the game free, Blizzard has also announced some changes that they’ve made to the original and some bug fixes, which is a nice touch for a game that’s close to two decades old.
