    RELIVE THE ORIGINS OF AZEROTH’S GREATEST HEROES IN WARCRAFT® III: REFORGED™


    The top-to-bottom upgrade of the seminal real-time strategy game includes a stunning visual update, over four hours of updated in-game cutscenes, and full Blizzard Battle.net® implementation

    Warcraft III: Reforged features modern matchmaking and tournament support, and will be supported well into the future with gameplay and balance updates

    Blizzard Entertainment today proudly unveiled Warcraft® III: Reforged™, a stunning reimagining of the revolutionary real-time strategy game that laid the foundation for Azeroth’s most epic stories. A remake in the truest sense, Warcraft III: Reforged sees the original Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its award-winning expansion, The Frozen Throne®, rebuilt from the ground up, with a thorough visual overhaul, a suite of contemporary social and matchmaking features via Blizzard Battle.net®, and a pledge of support for its thriving community of creators—starting with an upgraded World Editor.

    The founding of Orgrimmar. The fall of Lordaeron. The reign of the Burning Legion. The rise of the Lich King. Veterans and newcomers alike will experience these pivotal events in Azeroth’s history like never before in Warcraft III: Reforged, from the points of view of four distinct factions: the mighty Orcs, the noble Humans, the ancient Night Elves, and the insidious Undead Scourge.

    For Warcraft III: Reforged, every character, structure, and environment has been recreated to emphasize the depth, dimension, and personality of this rough-hewn world. The Warcraft III saga, which spans more than 60 campaign missions, enjoys an epic retelling in Reforged, with over four hours of updated in-game cutscenes and rerecorded voice-overs that breathe new life into the earliest renditions of key characters like Sylvanas Windrunner and Arthas Menethil.

    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’s dedicated community of mapmakers has kept the game thriving since it launched in 2002, and Reforged boasts an improved World Editor highly influenced by an ongoing dialogue with this talented group of creators. With countless new tools and features, the World Editor will set mapmakers free to craft new universes for players to enjoy. Existing custom maps will be playable in Reforged, and players will be able to use the new matchmaker to find partners or opponents for traditional melee and custom games.

    Warcraft III: Reforged will be released in 2019. Those eager to relive the history of Azeroth can pre-purchase the game today for 29.99 EUR for the standard edition, and 39.99 EUR for the Spoils of War Edition, which includes unique skins for four of the game’s hero units, as well as a host of in-game bonuses for a number of other Blizzard games, such as a gruesome Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft®, the Third War card back for Hearthstone®, and more.

    Question: will we have to buy this as well? Is it like an expansion for your expansion? Or not enough details to know that yet?

    I was almost crying when I saw the intro cinematic remade!

    I'm also really hyped about that upgraded World Editor!

    However, I'm really concerned about the huge graphic upgrade. I didn't ask for that much, to be honest. Firstly, because I don't quite enjoy that kind of cartoonish design (original Warcraft 3 has a cartoonish style, but Reforged's is just too much), and secondly because we are probably going to lose the benefits of all the fantastic custom models and textures, since they'll no longer match the new style. :/

    Well, wait and see, I'm looking forward to getting more news about this.

    Sorry for being the pessimistic doomsayer here :p

    It looks abysmal, low-effort and tacky as shit. It feels like they sacrificed style for graphical fidelity, but maybe that's just the grognard in me talking.

    so.. how does that work for the models/skins/other resources that we all have created here? I won't be particularly happy if they all stop working..

    Everyone’s so hyped. But I like this version we currently have now better then the trailer and the little gameplay shown above. Thanks, but I will stick to this version of Warcraft any day.

    Oh great, they even changed the voices of some characters...
    They're fitting it to WoW, exactly what I was afraid of.

    I hope the editor won't at least be like StarCraft II's and more like Warcraft III's.
