Add-on pack

StarCraft: Insurrection was a supplement for StarCraft that was released on July 31, 1998. Although produced by Aztech New Media, Blizzard Entertainment authorized Insurrection as an add-on pack.[1]

The plot revolved around a little-known Confederate planet called Brontes IV, where a routine patrol fails to check in. It featured three new, full campaigns, which comprise roughly 30 campaign missions, and more than 100 new multiplayer maps. It took place during Episode I.

The add-on pack does not require StarCraft: Brood War, and the missions could be accessed in the same manner as any fan missions, via the Custom Game screen, and selecting the first mission of the desired campaign.

Description[edit | edit source]

Brontes IV was a small planet missing from most Confederation nav. charts.

At least until all hell broke loose. Now The Swarm advances through a living nightmare of smoke and laser-fire. Protoss rain down from orbit, obliterating Zerg and Terran alike.

Amid the ruins of burnt-out cities, a Terran rebellion seethes under the inspiration of a madman.

Abandoned by the Confederacy, facing corruption from within, few will endure the planet's darkest hour. Yet, all that rabble needs to become an organized force, is a Leader...

Welcome to Brontes IV.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Blizzard Entertainment had final creative approval for all decisions on the campaign's story during its development.[citation needed] 
  • Blizzard has not made a final decision on Insurrection but is leaning toward saying it is not canon.[2]
