StarCraft: Retribution is the second of the two authorised add-on packs released for StarCraft. The add-on was developed by Stardock, published by WizardWorks Software and authorised by Blizzard Entertainment. It was released for Windows in late 1998.
Retribution is set during the second episode of StarCraft, revolving around the acquisition of a crystal of immense power connected to the Xel'Naga. Divided into three campaigns, the player assumes the roles of a Protoss fleet executor, the commander of a Dominion task force and a Zerg cerebrate, all tasked with retrieving the crystal from a Dominion colony and getting it off the planet as quickly as possible. As with its predecessor, Insurrection, Retribution does not include any new gameplay features beyond its single player campaigns and consortium of multiplayer levels. The add-on was not received with critical support, instead being regarded as average but at least challenging. As with Insurrection, Retribution is not widely available. Despite authorising the add-on, Blizzard Entertainment offers no comment regarding support or the availability of Retribution.
