The ghost is finally becoming visible.
Blizzard announced today a release date for Nova Covert Ops, the first mission bundle for its popular real-time strategy game StarCraft II. It comes out on March 29 and costs $15. StarCraft II originally released through three separate campaigns (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void), but Nova Covert Ops is the first pack of missions released after the conclusion of that trilogy. Nova Covert Ops is actually three packs of missions, so the ones coming later this month are just the first part of three. StarCraft II remains a popular esport, and continued support from Blizzard will keep fans playing the game.

The main character of these missions, Nova, is finally getting a starring role in a Blizzard game. She was originally supposed to appear in StarCraft: Ghost, a third-person shooter for consoles originally announced in 2002 that never saw release.
Blizzard is a busy company these days. Along with StarCraft II, it continues to create content for modern games like Diablo III, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone. It’s also working on a new team-based shooter, Overwatch, that is currently in closed beta. Blizzard also continues to support old games like Warcraft III and Diablo II with new patches that help them run on modern computers.
