Q: Who is eligible for the free-play weekend?

A: No. Only Battle.net accounts without an existing StarCraft II license attached are eligible to participate.



Q: I already own a copy of StarCraft II. How can I benefit from the free-play weekend?




The free-play weekend is intended for people who have not already purchased StarCraft II, similar to an open beta test for players to try the game out on a limited-time basis. If you have any friends who have not tried or are interested in trying StarCraft II, this is the perfect opportunity for them to do so.



Q: If I add time to my account during the free-play weekend, when does it start counting down?



A: If you add time to your account once you are in the free-play weekend, your time will not be deducted until the free-play weekend time has expired.



Q: Will I be able to play StarCraft II on the free-play weekend in an Internet game room or gaming cafe?



A: As long as the cafe has StarCraft II installed, you can log in with your own Battle.net account to enjoy the free-play weekend, provided you meet the eligibility rules above. Call and make sure your neighbourhood cafes install StarCraft II before November 18!



Q: How do I download the game client?



A: A free digital download will be made available on Monday, November 15. This download link will be active throughout the 72-hour promotional period.
