StarCraft II: Starter Edition Replaces Demo
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has announced the release of StarCraft II: Starter Edition, a replacement for the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty demo. The Starter Edition is available for free and features the first four missions of the single player campaign, the first two challenges, access to the Terran race in custom games and single player vs. AI, and access to several custom maps.

Weíve replaced the previously available StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty demo with the recently launched StarCraft II: Starter Edition. StarCraft II: Starter Edition allows anyone to play the following content for free (all you need is a Battle.net account and Internet connection):
  • The first four missions of the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty single-player campaign, including Mar Sara 1-3 and the choice to embark on Tychusís first mission or Dr. Hansenís first mission.
  • The first two Challenges: Tactical Command and Covert Ops.
  • Access to the terran race in Custom Games and Single-Player vs. AI.
  • Access to the following custom maps (map selection may rotate over time):
    • XelíNaga Caverns
    • Shattered Temple
    • Discord IV
    • High Orbit
Any campaign progress and achievements you earn while playing StarCraft II: Starter Edition are automatically saved to your Battle.net account, and will carry over should you ever upgrade from the Starter Edition to the full version of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

If youíre thinking of getting into the game or know a friend who's been interested in joining you in the Koprulu Sector, it's easier than ever to give the ultimate real-time strategy experience a spin. Just head over to the Starter Edition page here, or log in to an existing Battle.net account.
