StarCraft II fans in Russia will pay for the game differently than the rest of Europe.
Blizzard previously told us they would adapt the monetizing of StarCraft II to each region and Russians have obviously been deemed more accepting to monthly fees than other parts of Europe.
When the initial term has run out, a monthly fee will have to be paid to continue to play online. Blizzard has not yet confirmed exact price range.
Blizzard has only specifically confirmed this will not happen in Poland, where information first arose.
