Nova Covert Ops

Mission Packs

Tension has spread throughout the Dominion as Emperor Valerian struggles to address a resurgence in zerg attacks. Civilian fears have led to the formation of the Defenders of Man, a group claiming to preserve the safety of humanity. Meanwhile, a number of Dominion Ghosts—highly-trained psionic assassins—have gone missing, and Nova Terra, the deadliest Ghost of all, is among them.

Nova Covert Ops is a new single-player campaign that’ll take you inside the web of intrigue surrounding StarCraft’s enigmatic—and feared—shadow operatives.

In nine action-strategy missions spanning three mission packs, you’ll play as Nova Terra, the Dominion’s most powerful Ghost, and undertake assignments that are as dangerous as they are vital to the survival of the Dominion: infiltrating enemy bases, intercepting planetary invasions, helming experimental stealth ships, and other top-secret operations.

Pre-purchase the complete bundle now and receive an in-game portrait* and a special Covert Ops skin for your Ghosts in StarCraft II.

  • Customize your loadout and gain the upper hand in combat with iconic gear like the Stealth Suit, the C-20A Canister Rifle, and an armory of brand-new prototype gadgets.

  • Before you head into the field, modify your army to produce units that can respond to any threat, like cliff-scaling Siege Tanks and jet-boosted Hellbats.

  • Should the conflict escalate, you’ll be granted clearance to unleash the full fury of the Dominion’s nuclear arsenal.

Mission Pack Overview


  • Name: November Annabella Terra
  • Callsign: Nova
  • Date of Birth: XXXX
  • Birthplace: Tarsonis
  • Status: M.I.A.

November "Nova" Terra spent the best parts of her youth as the golden child of one of Tarsonis' wealthy Old Families. Though she exhibited signs of burgeoning psionic potential, Nova's parents insisted that she was merely sensitive or "empathetic," hoping to keep her abilities a secret (as much from the Ghost Academy that would conscript their child as from Nova herself).
