Warcraft 3 Reforged surprised a lot of people at Blizzcon 2018. Blizzard took everyone by surprise when they announced that they would be releasing a complete remaster of Warcraft 3. The remaster is called Warcraft 3: Reforged. This version of Warcraft will feature new art and animations. All this with the unreal real-time strategy will definitely make it a hit.
The players will still be able to control armies. You will be able to control orcs, humans, night elves and the undead. Many people were hoping that we would actually get Warcraft 4. However, the players needn’t feel disappointed as the remaster definitely looks amazing. It is refreshing, and it will be a great way to allow new players to experience the game which made Warcraft mainstream.
I’m sure Blizzard has some other reason to release Warcraft 3 Reforged. The game is going to be released sometime in 2019. According to reports, a beta for the game will be released in early 2019. The senior producer Pete Stilwell confirmed the same. There has been no news when it is going to start hut; we are expecting a release of maybe March or April.
Stilwell also said that the beta would have a lot of incomplete features and constant tweaks. Blizzard did add that they won’t be releasing anything major in 2019. It is unknown if the remaster counts a major game. In my opinion, I don’t think it does, and I am pretty confident that it will annoy a lot of fans if this is true.
Warcraft 3 Reforged will have the Frozen Throne expansion. The players will also get access to map and mod editors thus, enabling them to create custom game modes. A lot of people have been wondering about the change or addition in the multiplayer mode. We all know that Multiplayer is very important. Blizzard has said that Warcraft 3 Reforged will provide a better multiplayer experience for finding matches, creating new modes and sharing them.
All the Warcraft fans are anxiously waiting for a beta update of the new game, but nothing is coming out. It was affirmed by producer Pete Stilwell that the beta version would be out in early 2019, but we have got nothing although we are four months deep into 2019. I hope that we get the update in a month or two so that we might see the full version coming out in 2019 after rectifying all the errors.
Meanwhile, I would like to share that those playing Warcraft would also be able to team up with Warcraft 3, and all the mods and maps mar Warcraft 3 would work for original game players. See, that is what one can manage if a game is made from scratch. Warcraft 3 would be a sensation of course, and the wait will be worth it!
