Shortly before discovering Zerg activity in the Koprulu sector, Tassadar observed the movements of the Terran species; now, he wonders if they might have greater potential than to be unwitting victims of the Zerg or casualties of the Protoss armada. The Terrans are intrepid colonists, generations removed from Earth and governed by a failing Confederacy. Among the dilapidated fringe worlds, Marshal Jim Raynor joins up with a no-nonsense psionic assassin named Sarah Kerrigan and a group of aspiring freedom fighters to survive the destructive first contact of Protoss and Zerg.
Soon, planets throughout the sector spiral into all-out war, and Raynor realizes he may have signed up for something much bigger than mere survival. After graduating from the cutthroat academy, she earned her canister rifle and light-refracting stealth suit, and served the Confederacy with distinction. Sarah has had many masters over her life. Her dedication and competence are clear, but her personal loyalties are hazy. It remains to be seen if her fellow soldiers can be truly loyal to her in turn.
After an age swarming on the fringes of the galaxy, the ravenous Zerg make their way to unfamiliar planets in a sparsely populated region of space called the Koprulu sector. They infest entire planets, consuming everything in their path. Yet behind their animal cunning lurks a sinister intelligence, pushing the creatures against the constraints of their genetics—and towards evolution….
Though it exerts utter dominion over the single-minded Zerg, in recent years the Overmind has increasingly come to rely on its Cerebrates—communication specialists possessed of rudimentary personalities—to direct its many appendages. The emergence of these distinct beings amongst the unity of the hive hints at a broader vision for the future of the Swarm, and perhaps Terran and Protoss as well.

Posted 15 July - AM. If you go on Battle. For XP its a 1. I had to turn off peer-to-peer to increase the speed. I would do this soon, because you never know with Activision.
They certainly don't have to support an old game this way. So, I can take either of my codes, enter it into Battle. Do I need to have the CD in the drive? Can I still play the single player campaign?

I'll try that right now Windows Registry Editor Version 5. Thanks OP. Now, where the hell is my Starcraft Battlechest. You can also just buy a CD Key off of certain resellers. The key they give you is just a download key to use with the new battle. There's no real advantage to it over your original key other than that you can look this new one up on your battle.
I've never heard of Brood War coming with its own separate CD-key, so unless you have some special version that does, you need the original starcraft.
As jalu6 said, they've offered this download for a while now and I don't expect it to go away anytime soon. Still a good idea to register your game though. You can't have two people with the same cd-key playing on battle. HELL yeah! The bad thing about it is it ruins all other RTS for me.
Every single one I've played since has me going "umm Really appealing graphics, great story, awesome units, etc. I fell in love with it back when I played the demo and found out the tanks transform :-D Sucks about Starcraft 2 though. What do you mean by activation. I have not heard that at least for the US. Posted 16 July - PM. I believe SCII does require an initial activation online for single player. So not as bad as Ubisoft A player will also either have or sign up for a Battle.
Posted 17 July - AM. And it makes it a rental. Starcraft is one of those games I obviously want to be able to play decades in the future too. The original hasn't gotten any less fun in 12 years By providing links to other sites, CheapAssGamer. Forums Games CAGcast new! Games Reviews.
