Blizzard Entertainment recently announced that Global Play will soon be added to its popular sci-fi real time strategy title, StarCraft II. The new feature will give players the chance to access servers in regions outside their own to play with gamers from other parts of the world. Global play will be added to the game in an upcoming patch.

Global Play will give you access to StarCraft II game servers in regions outside your own, expanding the possibilities for eSports, exposing you to maps and games that arenít yet published everywhere, and making it easy to play with your friends in other parts of the world. Each region will have separate profile data, meaning that characters, profiles, ladder rankings, progress, and friends lists will not carry over from region to region. With Global Play, youíll have other regions to choose from as you create new characters, take on different ladder opponents, and perhaps try maps that youíve never seen before.

More about Global Play:

  • Players will be able to freely switch between regions via the StarCraft II login screen.
  • When your regionís game servers are undergoing maintenance, you may be able to play in a different region that is not down for maintenance.
  • Your game language and user interface will not change when you change regions.
  • Players using Global Play will be subject to the in-game policies of their selected play region.
Weíll have more details soon, including answers to your most frequently asked questions about Global Play.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

And the reason I never bought is finally lifted!

I have little interest in playing with strangers (my newbie skills would be pure frustration) but I DO want to play with actual friends—mostly not in my region.

Yeah, if they'd just put back LAN play it'd be a proper multiplayer game again.
