    Nova Covert Ops - Release of Mission Pack Two

    Today, Mission Pack Two to of the Nova Covert Ops has been released on Battle.net along with the
    3.5.0 patch of StarCraft II!


    What is Nova Covert Ops?
    The "Nova Covert Ops Mission Packs" contain a new campaign for the StarCraft II story.
    As the name reveals, the protagonist of this campaign is the Dominion Ghost Agent November "Nova" Terra.
    If you have played the previous StarCraft II titles, you might remember her from the other campaigns.
    As Nova, you awaken at a strange place and can't remember what happened. You have to escape and get back to the Dominion to fight a movement that endangers Emperor Valerian's rule while also endangering the population of the Dominion itself with reckless actions.
    Being in charge of a special elite unit that has access to the newest Terran technology, you can customize your forces more than you have ever been able to in the other campaigns.
    Do you want your Siege Tanks to jump on cliffs or would you rather have them require no Tech Lab anymore? There are many different ways to play the Nova Covert Ops that allow you to play around as you wish!

    What does the new Mission Pack/Patch offer?
    First off, of course, it offers three new missions that give you full access to more units and additional technology.
    Permanently cloaked Banshees, jumping Goliaths, instantly transformed Liberators and much more!

    Additionally, there are new skins for units in the editor. The already existing Tal'darim protoss skins have now their own portraits and more Terran units have gained their own special skins for Nova's special forces.
    Also, new terrain objects have been added!

    Oooh, nice. I wasn't particularly impressed with the first mission pack, but the third mission was the best so hopefully the campaign will hit its stride in this pack. Certainly if they're putting Goliaths back on the menu that's a positive sign (jumpjet Goliaths do sound lovely).

    I'm still not convinced that having Nova build armies is entirely the best use of her character (isn't she meant to be a solo operative?), but ah well, more singleplayer content can't go amiss. Maybe we can get a Karax+Alarak mission pack once Nova is done? I reckon there's a hilarious buddy-cop series in there.

    It's not all playable from what I understood. I meant waiting for all of it to be available as in players to be able to play all the missions.

    By the way, this ties in with Diablo III patch 2.4.2.
