StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops is a PC / Windows collection of DLCs to the StarCraft II trilogy consisting of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, released in 2010, and its two standalone expansions: Heart of the Swarm (2013) and Legacy of the Void (2015). Developed by the creators of the original game, the legendary Blizzard Entertainment, Nova Covert Ops offers three separate DLC packs, which, interestingly, do not require owning any of the previous installments of StarCraft II. In order to play them you need StarCraft II Starter Edition, i.e. a free game edition that offers a couple of solo missions and a very limited version of multiplayer.
StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops is set after the events of the last part in the trilogy, StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. Terrans are trying to rebuild their Empire, worn down after numerous civil wars and constant attacks of the Zerg. The story focuses on a character known from previous installments – an agent of the Ghosts squad, named November „Nova” Terra. As the game proceeds, the protagonist has to take on a dangerous group of separatists called the Defenders of Man and ensure the safety of Emperor Mengsk.
Unlike the original game, where one of the key game elements was the expanded multiplayer mode, the collection of DLCs StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops for PC / Windows offers no online gameplay. Each of the three DLC packs includes three extensive missions, which amounts to nine brand new levels designed solely for single player.
