StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty has been out for quite a while now, but if you’re still having second thoughts about picking up a copy of your own, then you might want to give the game’s revamped demo a shot. The Starter Edition will be larger and have far less restrictions than the original, as reported in Blizzard’s Battle.net website:
“We’ve 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 Tychus’s first mission or Dr. Hansen’s 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): Xel’Naga 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.”
