Blizzard has added Spawning to its real-time strategy game StarCraft 2.
Spawning allows a player to use one game disc to spawn in a second player who doesn't own the game. It was hugely popular during the early days of Warcraft 2 and the first StarCraft and now, nearly three years after the release of StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty, it's returned.
Of course, there's a Starter Edition of StarCraft 2 which already lets people play the game for free, but it doesn't include all of the features of the full version. Spawning "closes that gap", Blizzard said.
