Warcraft III: Reforged, the full-scale reimagining of Blizzard’s real-time strategy game, was originally planned to be released by the end of 2019. Now, Blizzard has announced that the game is going to be launched at 3 p.m. PST on January 28, 2020.
Including the original Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its award-winning expansion The Frozen Throne, Warcraft III: Reforged features seven single-player campaigns spanning over 60 missions, a top-to-bottom graphics, and audio overhaul, and a full suite of contemporary matchmaking features via Blizzard’s Battle.net online gaming service.
In addition, players will be able to do battle with anyone who plays Warcraft III, regardless of whether they’re playing the original or Reforged.
Also, Reforged will retain the original game’s voice over recordings, preserving the authenticity of the Warcraft III experience.
Moreover, Reforged features an all-new World Editor designed to empower the game’s long-standing creator community to reach new heights, with hundreds of new triggers, LUA scripting support, new tools for importing models, and more enhancements planned for the future.
Warcraft III: Reforged is available for digital pre-purchase now from the Blizzard Shop. Players can pre-purchase the Spoils of War Edition, which comes with unique hero skins for Arthas, Cenarius, Jaina, and Thrall.
Also included with the Spoils of War Edition is a host of in-game bonuses for other Blizzard games that will unlock immediately upon pre-purchase, such as the gruesome Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, the Third War cardback for Hearthstone, the Mal’ganis pet for Diablo III, and more.
