Warcraft III is Getting Remastered! Warcraft III: Reforged Releases in 2019
To World of Warcraft players, Warcraft III was the prequel to the MMORPG’s story. To strategy gamers, Warcraft III was a classic Blizzard RTS that added hero mechanics and also spawned the MOBA genre. Blizzard just announced that Warcraft III is getting remastered.
Warcraft III: Reforged is a complete reimagining of Warcraft III. This is what it says on the official website. Now what’s really cool about this remaster is that on top of reworked visuals for the game, Blizzard says they will also be producing new cutscenes for Reforged.
Which is bonkers considering Warcraft III was the first game where I really thought the cutscenes are like movie quality. It was and that’s a fact.
But I now what you want to see. Gameplay. Check out the video below.
They’ve reworked the unit visuals, texture resolutions (supporting 4K), the maps and even the UI. It looks pretty damn good. Warcraft III: Reforged will include the Reidng of CHaous campaign as well as the expansion pack, The Frozen Throne. As you can watch the intro to that classic mission in Warcraft III. Before Arthas goes mad.
The remaster will also come with the world editor which means you or any other intrepid player can build an entire new game. This could mean someone could create an updated version of DOTA.
I’m not sure how that works with the copyright for DOTA 2, but I’m pretty sure some people might attempt to do this.
Of course as expected, Reforged will also include new netcode and battle.net feature. So it a resurgence of the online multiplayer community for Warcraft III which was much needed.
We don’t have any specific release date for this other than a vague 2019… which is typical of Blizzard, but you can already pre-purchase the game for USD29.99.
There is also a Spoils of War Edition which gives you some additional goodies for other Blizzard games such as a mount for World of Warcraft and packs of card for Hearthstone.
Looks like I’ll definitely be busy playing Warcraft III multiplayer next year.
