Add-on pack

StarCraft: Retribution' was a supplement for StarCraft: Brood War that was released on 1998. Although produced by WizardWorks Software, Blizzard Entertainment authorized Retribution as an add-on pack.[1]

Retribution works within the limits of the original StarCraft game engine, and does not add any explicitly new content to the game, although it does contain over 120 new multiplayer maps, and a large single-player campaign.

Status

By 2003, it was very difficult to obtain a copy of Retribution. Almost no original copies of this game exist due to an early cancellation in production and a low purchase rate. While the add-on pack was authorized by Blizzard Entertainment, they offer no comment on availability or technical support.

At BlizzCon 2010, Blizzard employee Chris Metzen suggested that he didn't consider Retribution to be canon, but had not made a final decision.[2]
