The Herald of Silence is the sixteenth mission of Grey Goo (not counting the Emergence DLC). It was added as part of the Descent of the Shroud DLC. The mission introduces the new Shroud faction to players.
A few months have passed since the battle at the Aperture Device. Suddenly, a massive ship emerges through a keyhole recently created by the Goo. Singleton mobilizes his army, the only force left on the planet capable of combating this new menace. He also contacts Lucy Tak and Saruk so they can witness the battle and see this peril for themselves.
