    A red sun rises to greet the Hive's newest Hosted Project. This reforging of Warcraft II has made landfall on these tranquil shores... and soon, dreams of peace will be a distant memory.

    Follow the bloodstained legacy of the Orcish Horde, filled to the brim with new models and voice acting. Secure the isle of Zul'dare, wrest Zul'Jin from Alliance hands, and make a gruesome example of Hillsbrad in this four-chapter demo.

      "We aim to recreate the campaign of WarCraft II in Reforged, giving it fresh gameplay, custom assets and extended lore. The project was set in motion for years before Reforged even came out, meaning that a solid foundation is set in place. This is a tremendous task which requires a lot of skill, resources and time. Everything is put into motion and we have a solid "pool" of assets so far. We do appreciate your support and donations to help us compensate our efforts and dedication in delivering a fresh experience of Blizzard's old game to the newer generation."

    As someone who played WC2 has a 5-year-old with no English knowledge I would very much want to play this when finished.

    I did some of the campaign missions but was too stupid to complete it, and certainly, I remember 0 of the story. But some of the textures and whatnot are in my brain still.

    I do have some knowledge of the story from WoW but might be changed over the years.

    Congratulations on getting hosted! And congratulations to THW as well.

    I've yet to play beyond the demo's first mission but I'll make sure to get to that eventually. At least your Warcraft 2-inspired hosted project already has something publicly available unlike that other shitty Wc2 hosted project that never gets released.

    Here's to hoping you'll finish at some point.

    Are there any youtube let's plays of the Demo? When I see, I'm kinda sorry for Refunding, but it was well deserved by Blizzard.
