You can play the original StarCraft for free

While the Remastered version is on the way, you can grab your copy of the title and its expansion.

Some of you might be surprised, but the original StarCraft received its first update since the patch 1.16.1 was released in 2009. The newest patch is here to accompany a much bigger change: the game and its expansion are now free for you to download on PC and Mac.

Recently we witnessed the announcement of the Remastered version that will release later this year. And while the upcoming remake is all about making the game working well on modern devices, you surely can appreciate the original, especially if you spend a moment to mod it for current operating systems and resolutions.

If you are interested in making a return to the StarCraft universe or finding for the first time what was behind its success, go to the Blizzard official blog note.
