StarCraft Tech Manual by Insight Editions

StarCraft Tech Manual by Insight Editions is a new book slated to launch to bookstores on June 2015. This book, based on the StarCraft universe, may be compared with Diablo III: Book of Cain in terms of content and motiff.

It’s about time we see new books in development after the long hiatus since War Crimes. The StarCraft Tech Manual preview hints at new units never seen before, some even from StarCraft: Ghost. But what does that mean?
