We now know Warcraft III: Reforged’s release date, down to the actual hour

Though I feel like part of the vast PR zerg in sharing that release date map, I do like that Blizzard took the time to craft it. I now know that should I find myself in LA on Jan 28, 2020, I’ll be able to play remade RTS Warcraft III: Reforged at 3PM. I'll more likely be in the UK, so it will be 11PM…

Warcraft III: Reforged revamping Blizzard’s classic RTS

Having remastered StarCraft last year, Blizzard are now updating another of their classic real-time strategy games: Warcraft III. During BlizzCon today they announced Warcraft III: Reforged, a revamped release of WC3 with redone artwork, UI improvements, and other such modern fancying-up. Wait. Hang on. Warcraft III first came out on 2002? That can't be right. That would mean... oh god, this is a lot to…

Warcraft 3 gets aspect-correct widescreen, 24-player support and new modding features in a major update

We might still be recovering from Starcraft's 20th birthday bash, but Blizzard are still ready to party like it's 2002. After a long and mostly uneventful trial period on their public test servers, Warcraft III has received probably it's biggest update in the past decade, Patch 1.29, bringing the game far closer to modern spec, although it's still not quite the HD upgrade or overhaul that…

Seems Blizzard Are Revamping Diablo 2, StarCraft, WC3

[Update: Oh! Blizzard told GameSpot it's simply to maintain them. Dreams are always so short-lived. Hey, maybe do consider revamping them though! That would be lovely. Official support for modern resolutions in Diablo II would be a grand start.]Once a games studio has been around for long enough, different generations of players will each have their own idea of the devs' finest days. Perhaps like…

StarCraft Modders Making Unofficial Sequel To WarCraft III

That's StarCraft II, mind you. Otherwise, I think that'd be a dequel, and I'm not sure anyone actually wants one of those. But yes, WarCraft: A New Dawn is picking up the severed orc hand of maximum strategy Blizzard dropped after WoW exploded. As of now, it's very much a work-in-progress, but the end goal is to craftily craft StarCraft into "a breathtaking, lore-abiding storyline…
