Blizzard’s Chris Sigaty spoke with Eurogamer on the topic of Blizzard All-Stars, revealing two things: The game will not be a special mode or add-on for a pre-existing game (StarCraft 2), and it will be free to play with micro-transactions.

StarCraft 2 is a box,” said Sigaty, “We intend to do something different with the business model in Blizzard All-Stars, something more closely resembling the other types of games in that genre, the MOBA-style games that are out there today, and being able to sell smaller amounts of things to players, the things they want.”

Blizzard All-Stars will be the company’s first test with the free to play business model, but it’s not a surprise considering the stiff competition from League of Legends and Dota 2. The genre is the biggest in PC gaming right now, and it may be a pool in which Blizzard’s name alone would not be able to make them float. Choosing to go with a free to play model in a MOBA is a smart decision, no matter how you look at it.
