Starcraft 2 Spawning gives free-to-play version to friends

Share your StarCraft experience with any of your friends

Blizzard has added a new feature to Starcraft 2 called Spawning, which enables players who don’t own the game to still play with friends.

Spawning featured on the original Starcraft, and allowed gamers who didn’t own a copy of the game to join a game-owner’s party, and get in on the “Starter Edition” action.

Players who don’t own the game will be levelled-up to match the expansion of the players in the party, for example: a starter edition player will gain access to the Heart of the Swarm content if they join a HotS player.

Keep in mind that not all content can be accessed for free. Starter Edition players still won’t have access to the entire single-player campaign, and can only play as Terran.

Despite the limitations, it’s still a really great way to give friends a chance to play the game without paying for a copy.
