Blizzard is giving away the original StarCraft for free

Blizzard announced that the original version of StarCraft will be released completely for free.

Version 1.18 of StarCraft: Brood War will be, as Blizzard said, released later this week. The update of the 1998 game will include a lot of bug fixes and new features. It will also introduce a new anticheat system and better compatibility with never operating systems.

Besides the StarCraft: Brood War, Blizzard will release StarCraft Anthology for free too after recently pulling it off their online store.
