Warcraft 3: Reforged release date announced

The eagerly anticipated Warcraft 3 remaster, Warcraft 3: Reforged, finally has a release date. Reforged is a full reimagining of the Blizzard classic and contains the massive campaigns from both Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne.

Warcraft 3: Reforged features seven campaigns totally 60 missions and will also launch with modern matchmaking tools using Battle.net. Additionally, Reforged keeps compatibility with the original version of Warcraft 3. So, you can play with anyone that has a copy of the original game or Reforged without issue.

ALSO: Previously out-of-print Blade Runner adventure game releases on GOG

For those who love mapmaking and custom game modes, Reforged has a World Editor designed from the ground up for ease of use and further expandability than the original. There’ll be tons of new triggers available for use and LUA scripting support. You’ll also be able to import new models, and even more features will be integrated into the World Editor as time goes on.

Despite the visual overhaul, Warcraft 3: Reforged will hang onto some of its roots. The original voice-overs have been left unchanged, giving you the best of both worlds with increased graphical fidelity while still keeping iconic audio cues.
