While you may be busy with Hearthstone's Open Beta, Blizzard's popular RTS StarCraft 2 is receiving a brand new patch today that will, in essence, push the title closer than it has ever been to free-to-play by adding in free access to custom maps.

Becoming available in patch 2.1, those who utilise the Starter Edition of StarCraft 2 will now be able to access the "Arcade" section for free, which includes all maps, mods and games found within. Alongside the Arcade, Blizzard has also made all three races available to Starter Editions (previously Terran only) and all custom games, essentially making it so you never have to purchase anything for the "base" game again.

Other changes noted in the patch are changes to modding parameters,
more levels (raised from 30 to 35), the original StarCraft soundtrack for those wanting some nostalgia while battling it out and of course your usual balancing and bug fixes. Check out the full patch notes over here and also find an informative video below on Blizzard's approach to mod tools.
