This will be a fantastic time for new players, as the game recently underwent a major shift that addresses underused units. Those who don't own StarCraft 2 will receive the base game, Wings of Liberty, for free. If you already own Wings of Liberty, you'll receive Heart of the Swarm. Free-to-play players will have full access to the ranked ladder and free access to co-op commanders up to level five. More details on StarCraft 2 free-to-play are up on the Blizzard blog.
Morhaime also introduced a new co-op commander, which is made up of two characters: Mira Han and Matt Horner. A new co-op mission called Cart and Parcel will arrive on November 14 as well.
If you already own all of the current StarCraft 2 content, Blizzard will be sending an exclusive Ghost skin in addition to three new portraits. If you grabbed a virtual ticket for BlizzCon 2017, there's a StarCraft 2 reward awaiting.
