The third and final set of Nova Covert Ops (opens in new tab) mission packs for StarCraft 2 will be released later this month, we learned at BlizzCon on Friday. We don't have a heck of a lot of details about the new missions yet, but above you can watch a trailer for the newest co-op commander, Alexei Stukov. He seems nice.

The description below the trailer reads:

"Former Terran vice admiral and current-infested leader of Stukov's forces, Alexei Stukov will be joining the ranks as the newest StarCraft ll commander! Leading forces of infested units and structures, this unorthodox commander is sure to overwhelm foes."

I'm sure he will. The new mission pack will arrive on November 22. Each pack costs $7.50 a pop and contains three missions, though Blizzard's currently offering them bundled for $15 (opens in new tab).

He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
