New players who would like to participate can create Battle.net accounts at https://sea.battle.net/account/creation/tos.html and activate StarCraft II on their accounts. Players with existing Battle.net accounts which do not have StarCraft II are also welcome to participate.

The free-play weekend kicks off the availability of the recently announced StarCraft II prepaid game card options for players in Hong Kong/Macau, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand.
