Blizzard is also making StarCraft 2's online ranked competitive multiplayer available for free and players will be able to access units from all three StarCraft 2 releases. Meanwhile Unranked and Versus AI modes will also be unlocked, with access to Ranked modes being granted after the first ten wins of the day in the former two. You'll see Raynor and Kerrigan as well as Artanis, all three of whom are always free without restriction.

"That wasn't well-known", production director Tim Morten told Polygon in an interview. You'll be able to start playing on November 14th.
