With StarCraft 2 now done and dusted Blizzard are moving on to their special DLC mission packs.
Pre-purchases for the Nova Covert Ops mission pack bundle are now being taken over on Battle.Net ahead of their launch next spring. There’s also a deal where you save 33% on all three mission packs if you commit now. The Nova mission pack will cost $14.99 and comes with 3 episodes containing 3 missions each.
Pre-order bonuses come in the form of a Nova portrait as well as a Covert Ops Ghost skin for Ghost units. Once the game launches these bonuses will no longer be available.
