StarCraft II subscription pricing announced for South America

Blizzard’s announced the subscription pricing for South America for StarCraft II.

For Argentina, Chile and Mexico, you can buy the game for $299 MXN / $119 ARS / $13,900 CLP in each region, with up to six months of single-player and multiplayer included.

If you wish to play it after that six month period, you can pay for additional time between 30 and 60 days. Pricing is yet to be announced on that front.

If players want a sub-free experience, they can download the game from Battle.net for $60.

The plan is similar to what’s being planned in Russia for the game.

“One of our design goals for StarCraft II was to make it accessible to a wide range of players, from beginners to veterans,” Blizzard president Mike Morhaime said in a press release.

“The same is true with regard to our pricing options — we want to make sure players have the flexibility to experience the game according to their own preferences and play style.”

PR’s here. StarCraft II releases on July 27 worldwide.

    @Johnny:

    I haven’t followed this at all, but, does SC2′s single-player campaign require a subscription? What am I missing? Could you please clear this bit up for stupid me?

    Well, I’m from Argentina, and that’s not thaat bad, it’s like, US$30 or $20 pounds.

    EDIT: They’re saying that, after the six month you can’t play even singleplayer. I thought it was an error from Johnny

    Its only for the emerging market to sell it to so they don’t have to pay for the whole game they instead pay a sub.

    Its actually a nice deal if I just want to plat the Single player and not the MP, I would just pay 30$ and a the sub beat it before the next month and I save 20. If I want the full version I just upchuck the remainder and play my heart out.
