Starcraft & Brood Wars will be Released for Free

The original, not the remaster.

With Blizzard having announced the HD Remaster of Starcraft coming soon, a lot of people are left to wonder what they’re going to do with the original. After all, the first Starcraft and it’s expansion, Brood War, are more than just classics of the RTS genre: they’re games that defined the genre and in many ways, birthed the modern eSports scene we still enjoy to this day. It wouldn’t be right to merely get rid of them.

Thankfully, Blizzard agrees and has decided the best way to celebrate its legacy and raise some hype for their upcoming remaster is to offer the first game, and Brood War, absolutely free over the Blizzard client.

But here’s the really cool part: Blizzard has confirmed that the free, old version of the game is actually compatible with the HD remaster. So you can play it with your friends who are too cheap to upgrade! How’s that for swell?

Even better, Blizzard recently patched the original Starcraft, making it compatible for newer systems, like Windows 7, 8, and 10. You can find it here, if you want to give it a download: I can’t think of a better way to warm yourself up for when the HD remaster is released.

The price and date of the HD remaster are thus far unannounced, but Blizzard has set the date around summer.
