Warcraft III: Reforged is a remastered version of the legendary RTS Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos from 2002 and its add-on called The Frozen Throne. The game was developed by Blizzard Entertainment. This extremely popular developer is responsible for the creation of the Warcraft brand, which was born in 1994. Warcraft III: Reforged was officially announced at the BlizzCon Convention in November 2018.
Warcraft III: Reforged takes us into the fantastic world of Azeroth and lets us learn about the history of the four races (Orcs, Humans, Undead and Night Elves) that are waging a war for control over the whole land. The story is told through cut-scenes running on the game's engine (their total length exceeds four hours), which focus on several main characters of the campaign.
Warcraft III: Reforged is a classic real-time strategy in which the action is presented in isometric view. Players build bases, collect resources, and then recruit units which are send to fight enemies. The game has a few balance changes which are exclusive to the remaster. It is worth mentioning that many of them are the result of suggestions coming from fans and e-sport players.
In addition to the single player campaign, we can also play in multiplayer mode. It is fully compatible with the original version of the title. Since both games use the same engine, we will also be able to use community maps in the included editor.
Warcraft III: Reforged offers fully refreshed graphics. The title supports high resolutions, it has also introduced a package of social functions and solutions for the matchmaking system etc. Many of the maps have been redesigned to better reflect the appearance of a world that fans know from World of Warcraft. The cut-scenes were made from scratch with new character models and animations. The voice actors, cooperating with Blizzard, recorded their dialogue lines again.
