StarCraft: Remastered now free on Prime Gaming (opens in new tab).

StarCraft: Remastered is now free to download on Prime Gaming. The classic sci-fi real-time strategy game allows you to control three different species and complete missions throughout the game's campaign. You can also go head-to-head against other players online to test your skill and go to war. You'll have to hurry though as this offer stands until August 31. 

Set in the distant future of the 25th century, StarCraft is an essential sci-fi real time strategy game that revolves around three main species: the mechanized Terrans, the insectoid Zerg and the psi-powered Protoss. Players get to command each race to complete different missions through the game in order to complete it. 

StarCraft is a hugely successful gaming franchise and once you complete the campaign, you can build your base, raise your army and go head-to-head against other players online. This is essentially the remaster you would want from a game, the gameplay and story is the same, but the graphics, audio and dialogue and matchmaking have been improved.
