    This will be great news in 10 years when we'll have a database of models, skins, icons, spells, maps for it comparable to what we have today.
    Without those things Warcraft III is meaningless, good graphics or not.

    Before they fix it, I thought I should keep a track of their failed system requirements for the remaster...
    So good news everyone! Despite Warcraft III not running on XP anymore you can always run the remake on XP! It even still works for an ancient Pentium 2!

    Overall I am not too happy with this. £25 and no discount for RoC+TFT licence owners.

    Sooo, will we get any more patches for normal WC3? Or will they cease to be released, because of reforged?

    Like SC1, it will almost certainly be the normal WC3 with paywall for graphics.

    I came to know 'bout this too, and wonder if every custom campaign or map will have to be updated later with the new world editor >.<

    The holy light spell and devotion aura in that video look exactly the same as they are now

    Oh, come on, people. I know the art-style and some voices are different, but let's at least give the Reforged W3 a chance :)

    New editor. Oh, dear lord, i hope they wount mess it liks SC 2 one. More possibility less handleability. And i think it wount be compatible with old scenarios. So it can be a catastrophe. Bare game, old melee warcraft 3 without old new custom games, there will be the only new ones which you must create on new crippled staredit analogue. So there will be a small editor dedicated fanbase, and as a result poor nubmers of custom game with quite poor number of actually good ones. I hope that im wrong.
    And its realy sad for me, that in redesign they took WoW one design for infernal. In my opinion nothing can best the classic one. Сoncise yes stylish

    I might give the custom stuff a try if they are not stupidly uploaded like on SCII's arcade. I hope we will have a custom campaign menu like with the Frozen Throne.

    Point is, that I just wanted TESH in world editor. Asides from that, 1.30 already gave everything I wanted. And I seriously dislike the new graphics. But, then again, this is not the finished product yet. Maybe it will be better. Still, I liked the old WC3 graphics, maybe nostalgia, maybe something more.

    We said that about WoW and then Pandaland came.

    Let’s be real here. They reforge the game for profit only and no heart. High graphic, minor gameplay changes, and recent views of a close to resembling Starcraft editor.

    Everything seen above doesn’t even look like that much effort was put into it. The whole Hive Workshop, hell, even Ujimasa Hojo could do and did a lot better. Hail the new Hive Workshop expansion! Hail!

    I would say WC3's back but it was never really gone.

    They could make Warcraft IV or a RTS/TBS game with this engine.

    When I see that editor I may. Depends on what they put in it. It may include half the modeling/skinning tools, button-maker, spell-maker and other stuff in it for all we know. I have my hopes up, but I also realize Blizzard has done nothing but disappointed me since 2010.

    In the gameplay video they state the following "Work in Progress - Arts and effects not final".

    Check out the gameplay trailer:

    Wow. That is amazing! Those graphics are so good and still look very WC3. Good job!
