StarCraft II introduces new Spawning System

by William Schwartz

Blizzard is reintroducing the spawning system to the StarCraft franchise.  For those unfamiliar, back in the days of Warcraft and the original StarCraft, even if players didn’t own a copy of the game, they could play.  The only stipulation was that a player they were grouped with owned it.

Spawning is now available in StarCraft II.  A nice chunk of StarCraft II is available in the game’s Starter Edition, but with the spawning system, all features are available for anyone grouped with a player that owns the full game.

“Any player at a lower expansion level who joins a party that includes a player at a higher expansion level is Spawned up, and gets to play using the features and options of the highest expansion level for as long as they’re in a party together. When a Starter Edition player joins a party with a Wings of Liberty-level player, both are instantly playing Wings of Liberty. When those two players then join a party with a Heart of the Swarm-level player, they all immediately gain access to Heart of the Swarm content, and they keep that access until their party no longer includes any higher-expansion level players,” according to a recent post on Battle.net.

So what are you waiting for?  Go get in a group and check out all of the content in Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm that you might be missing out on.
