Warcraft III: Reforged Brings Back the Classic RTS

Back before it was an entire world enjoyed by millions of adventurers Blizzard's Warcraft was best known for being one of the biggest names in the RTS or real-time strategy game. At BlizzCon this year, Blizzard announced the existence of Warcraft III: Reforged, which brings back the 2002 classic with updated 4K visuals and other goodies.

Like, over four-hours of in-game cut-scenes reworked with new voices and wonderfully detailed characters like Arthas and Sylvanas to help re-tell the Warcraft III story. Night Elves, Humans, Orcs, Undead - yeah, there's a lot that happens that also sets the scene for major World of Warcraft events we've seen over the years. Visual upgrades also extend to the environment and buildings and units and animation - whilst retaining the look and feel of the original. The brightest green that ever greened apparently.



“Warcraft III is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we’ve done since,” said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment. “A project like Warcraft III: Reforged isn’t something we undertake lightly, partly because of this legacy, but more importantly, because we know what it means to our players.”

Warcraft III: Reforged includes both Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and the expansion, The Frozen Throne - and has a release window of 2019 where it will be available for $44.95 AUD. In fact pre-orders are now open with in-game bonuses for other Blizzard games, including a Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft.

We'll have more on this remaster soon, but for more info - head here.
