Warcraft III: Reforged is coming to PC early next year with a host of new features. Here’s what players can look forward to.
Warcraft III: Reforged is an update of Blizzard’s 2002 real-time strategy classic, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. It includes the full base game and the acclaimed expansion, The Frozen Throne.
Here’s what you need to know about the new version of the game.
The release of Warcraft III: Reforged has been delayed slightly and will now arrive on January 29, 2020. Here’s a handy map detailing the worldwide unlock times.
In terms of content, there are seven single-player campaigns to work through, comprising of 60 missions.
The game’s graphics have been completely reworked, with redone characters, structures, environments, and animations. New graphical effects have also been added.
No change! Reforged retains the game’s original voice-over recordings. This is a good thing.
Players can battle online between Reforged and the original version of Warcraft III.
Reforged includes a brand new World Editor. Blizzard says it’s “designed to empower the game’s longstanding creator community to reach new heights.” New heights, we tell you. It features hundreds of new triggers, LUA scripting support, and new model importing tools. Blizzard also plans additional enhancements in the future.
The full suite of Battle.net features is supported, including text and voice chat, clans, installation, and patching.
Warcraft III: Reforged is available to pre-order now in two editions. The standard version is available for £24.99/$29.99. The Spoils of War edition is £34.99/$39.99 and includes unique hero skins for Arthas, Cenarius, Jaina, and Thrall, plus a host of in-game bonuses for other Blizzard games that unlock immediately.
