Blizzard is giving away StarCraft II to Korean gamers for free – sorta. The deal is that those in Korea who have active World of Warcraft accounts will get access to the full version of StarCraft II.
According to IGN, Blizzard's Chris Sigaty described the announcement as "a way of giving something back to such a supportive and skilled community of players."
Blizzard won't need any help in boosting the popularity of StarCraft in Korea, but packing it in as part of a WoW subscription could do wonders for signups for the MMO.
The subscription option makes even more sense in light of the monthly, and even daily, pass models offered for StarCraft II.
Clearly, WoW gamers throughout the rest of the world are feeling quite jealous right now.
