StarCraft 2’s Nova Covert Ops gets its first mission pack on March 30

StarCraft 2

The first mission pack for Nova Covert Ops, the latest single-player campaign coming to StarCraft 2, releases on March 30 in Europe.

StarCraft 2 made it into our list of the best strategy games on PC – can you guess what else features?

The standalone Nova Covert Ops includes nine missions across three separate packs, and introduces some new mechanics, as well as letting you tackle classic StarCraft 2 challenges. You can jump into this even if you don’t own a StarCraft game.

“The reign of Emperor Valerian Mengsk is under threat,” says the official blurb. “Along with facing political opposition, several Dominion ghosts have gone missing in action while under his rule. Their trail leads to a secretive Terran group, the Defenders of Man. As Nova Terra, a psionic ghost trained to be the perfect covert operative, you must delve into the conspiracy before it’s too late for the Terran Dominion.”

In the first Nova Covert Ops mission pack you play as November “Nova” Terra, the Dominion’s most powerful Ghost. As Nova, you’ll infiltrate bases, intercept invasion forces, use experimental tech, and embark on top secret missions that are vital to the survival of the Dominion.

StarCraft 2 owners who pre-purchase the complete bundle prior to launch receive a Covert Ops skin for their Ghost units.
