At BlizzCon 2018, fans were waiting for the remaster of the first or second Diablo, but Blizzard came in from a completely different direction: the company announced the reissue of Warcraft III, which has a rather serious set of improvements. The new version is called Warcraft III: Reforged. It includes the basic Reign of Chaos and the addition of The Frozen Throne. Thus, the story campaign will consist of 62 tasks in Azeroth and beyond.
Reforged reworked all the characters, buildings and elements of the environment – Blizzard worked on models and animations. In addition, over four hours of videos were shot again, and new actors were picked up for voice acting. For example, Sylvanas Windrunner and Arthas Menethil will speak in other voices.
Additional features and tools will appear in the map editor. Players will again be able to create entire universes and share creations with the community. At the same time, existing custom maps will be compatible with Reforged.
Network battles sparkle with fresh paint. For Reforged, they are preparing closer integration with Battle.net, improved matchmaking and thousands of changes in the balance of heroes, units, and buildings.
Warcraft III: Reforged will be released in 2019.
