"One of StarCraft's most memorable characters, Nova Terra, returns in a brand new RTS mission pack - Nova Covert Ops. The first mission pack will be arriving in Spring 2016."

As a huge Starcraft fan I don't mind more of the stuff I love. That said, hearing about new paid mission packs before the final installment of the series drops is still a bit odd to me. I know this is the new way of things for gaming as companies now offer you the base game or advanced edition and also the ability to buy all future DLC in the form of a season pass.

All of that aside, the new teaser video is impressive and I plan on picking these missions up as so far all single player Starcraft II stuff has been incredible. I wonder how far in the future Blizzard will continue to support Starcraft II with additional paid content?

Will you be picking up these new SCII missions?

I posted about this because I didn't realize you did. Travis showed me though.

Did you play StarCraft: Ghost, I think it was called? I didn't so Nova's a relatively new character to me. At least, I think that was her game.

Ghost was canceled before release

But Nova was in WoL and HotS.

Right Nova was a side character in both Starcraft 2 games. In Wings of Liberty you could pick to play as Nova or Tosh and I picked Tosh as I liked his character better.

That said maybe Blizzard is taking the story they may have went in the cancelled Ghost game and putting it into these missions?

Yeah, I saw that. I am hoping it's pretty good. We are getting it 3 missions at a time which isn't a lot but does space it out over time. I plan on reviewing them each at a time, which should be fun.
