As part of Blizzard’s plans to continue supporting their flagship RTS, the company has revealed that it will produce and release episodic single-player content as paid DLC.
In an embargoed interview yesterday with Legacy of the Void level designer Kristopher Howl, it was announced that the first set of single-player content post-Legacy of the Void would be nine campaign missions featuring Nova.
The missions would be released in three tranches of three missions a piece, while additional content including skins would also be released as part of a broader strategy to provide more than just multiplayer content for StarCraft.
Howl confirmed with me that Nova would gain upgrades and additional abilities over the course of the missions, not wholly unlike the structure set in place for the co-operative Allied Commanders mode.
The missions would also be set after Legacy of the Void, with the Terran Dominion being beset with internal conflict in the wake of the final StarCraft 2 campaign. Howl added that the DLC single-player missions would introduce new mechanics and revolve around Nova’s role as a Ghost.
More information about Blizzard’s plans for StarCraft 2 was announced this morning during the company’s annual convention, Blizzcon. Starcraft 2: Nova Covert Ops will drop Spring 2016 (Autumn here in Australia). Check out the trailer below:
