The date is set! Warcraft III Reforged is scheduled for release on January 28th, 2020, which is a bit over a month from now. Everyone’s got caught off guard when Blizzard announced this since it kind of came out of the blue (pun intended). Nevertheless, the overall feedback from beta was pretty positive, and we’re eager to see our favorite Warcraft stories and heroes come to life once again.
For those of you who don’t know, Warcraft III Reforged was first announced on November 2nd, 2018, during Blizzcon. Ever since then, the fans were eagerly awaiting this beloved game to be re-released and modernized. One year after it was announced, Warcraft III Reforged entered its beta. At this point, players could see the visual overhaul that the game received, and frankly, it looks amazing. The devs really went out of their way when creating this remake, and judging by the community’s reaction, it definitely paid off.
As for the game itself, Warcraft III Reforged will feature the entire original campaign from both Rain of Chaos and The Frozen Throne. This means that players will be able to re-live the whole thing once again. Rexxar’s campaign – The Founding of Durotar will also be included. Arthas, Jaina, Thrall, Kel’Thuzad, Illidan, and all other beloved heroes will make a return, looking better than ever. Initially, Blizzard wanted to change some aspects of the original story, but after seeing the community’s reactions, they decided against it, and only made some slight alterations without making any significant plot changes.
The famous World Editor from the original game is making a return, this time enhanced to allow support for Lua, which will allow users to create way more complex maps than they could back in the days with the original editor. There’s no doubt that once the game releases, there will be thousands of amazing maps by the community, and this alone is a great reason to try Warcraft III Reforged.
Blizzard stated that they will be making some balance adjustments in order to modernize the gameplay. There will also be numerous quality of life improvements, Battle.net integration, and many other small things that are aimed at improving players’ overall experience. All in all, we’re in for a treat this January, and judging by the initial impressions, players are more than eager to relive the good old days once again.
