Warcraft 3: Reforged aiming to support all original mods

One detail I'd missed in Friday's announcement of Warcraft III: Reforged is that Blizzard's upcoming remaster should be able to play all the original's player-created maps and modes. Which is great news. WC3 has one of the great forgotten modding scenes, growing so many genres beyond the obvious MOBAs like DotA. Every night for months, my pals and I would play random 'custom games' and…

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…

Warcraft 3 gets a major new update for public testing

There's been rumors circulating for some time that after the success of their Starcraft remaster, Blizzard were looking at giving a similar treatment to Warcraft 3, their massively popular and immensely modded RTS, birth-place of the MOBA genre as we know it. Whether or not it's part of remastering plans, we've certainly reason to celebrate: Blizzard rolled out a new public test build of Warcraft 3 yesterday,…

In Praise Of World Of Warcraft: Legion

I often feel sorry for the World of Warcraft team. You're never far off a million complaints about everything from balance to nostalgic musings about how much better things used to be to the lingering "Wait, how is that clunky old thing still getting so much attention?" whenever anyone says anything nice about it. Today though, I want to put my positive hat on and…

World of Warcraft 7.3 now available in public test realm

World of Warcraft [official site] 7.3 represents a dramatic shift in the war against the Burning Legion. Taking place after the Tomb of Sargeras raid, the heroes of Azeroth are going to be taking a trip to the Legion’s unpleasant homeworld of Argus, where they’ll become the invaders. The patch is now available in the Public Test Realm.

World of Warcraft event opens Diabolical cow level

While every day is satanday chez Alice, Blizzard are a little more reserved. They've waited until the 20th anniversary of Diablo's launch to unleash a torrent of satans and skellingtons, and even remake the first game inside Diablo III. We mentioned that before, and now it's live. But! Beyond that, Blizzard have also put D3 on sale, sent the Dark Wanderer into Hearthstone, and unleashed…

WoW Players Can Return To Karazhan On 25 October

Return to Karazhan kind of implies I've been to Karazhan even once. It's like when you meet someone new at a party and they say "So good to see you again!" and you have to decide whether to tell them you've never met or just go with it, trying to work out who they think you are and generally besmirching that other person's reputation. Oh…

He Was The Lore: Blizzard’s Chris Metzen Retires

Blizzard lorelord Chris Metzen ('senior vice president of story and franchise development', if you want to be technical) has handed in his badge and his loregiver (his keyboard, obvs) and taken The Long Walk into The Cursed Earth (idk, Reddit?). After nearly 23 years of laying down the lore and voicing characters from Thrall to the good ol' Terran Battlecruiser, Metzen last night announced his…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Sold 3.3 Million At Launch

It's interesting to follow the fate of World of Warcraft [official site]. It's the MMORPG which made MMORPGs mainstream, the MMO which accidentally stunted 'em by inspiring so many homogenising imitators, and one of the few which has managed to hold onto a subscription model (heck, even EVE Online is getting a free option). So how's WoW doing? Pretty well! In their traditional post-expansion boast,…

WoW: Legion Launches App, Teases 7.1 Content Update

World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] launched last week and oh! here comes the expansion's little pal, chasing behind wagging its cybertail. Blizzard last night launched Legion's companion app for pocket telephones, which mostly lets you fiddle with the 'Order Hall' class clubhouse stuff. Like AbyssRium but with burly soldiers instead of coral and jellyfish, I imagine? Blizzard have also shown off a little of…

Battlefield 1 Beta Brought Down By DDoS Attack

The beta of Battlefield 1 [official site] was shut down on its first day by a group pummeling EA’s servers with a denial of service attack. And if you hopped off to play some Overwatch or WoW instead, you might have encountered an identical problem, because the same group has been attacking Blizzard’s servers as well. It is as if a dozen gaming forums losing…

Hell’s Bells! World Of Warcraft: Legion Launches

Demons? Again? Already? I swear, it's not even a decade since neon green last swept The World of World of Warcraft. Fashion moves at such a pace there! No wonder everyone's always grinding for new pauldrons: they're trying to keep up in a world of violent fashionistas. Anyway, point is: World of Warcraft: Legion [official site], the sixth expansion to Blizzard's fantasy MMORPG, is now…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Pre-Expansion Patch Now Live

World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] won't launch until August 30th but the demonic hordes are already making their move upon Azeroth. The traditional WoW pre-expansion patch is now live, implementing a fair chunk of the expansion's big changes. Lots of classes are reworked, draw distances are increased, the transmogrification system is massively improved so you don't need to stash loads of old items, equalised…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Will Start To Leak In August

The World Of Warcraft [official site] blog is talking about the upcoming Legion pre-patch. As a non-player the update info tends not to grab me particularly (unless it's about Illidan and looks like a pro wrestling intro) but I do like the talk of the pre-expension patch where the new content starts to seep into the world and set the scene for the expansion. It's…

World Of Warcraft Dev Address Pacing Problems

If you're still holding your breath for Blizzard to make a firm ruling on official servers running older (legacy) versions of World of Warcraft [official site], jeez, you must be tired. A month of holding until you pass out, over and over? Rough. Well, a Blizzard livestream today deftly stepped around that, but one dev get nicely into one of the problems fuelling interest in…

World Of Warcraft: Legion Hunting Demons From August

If you're one of the lapsed World of Warcraft players who pops back to check out each new expansion, here, draw a wavering circle around August 30th on your calendar as that's when World of Warcraft: Legion [official site] will launch, Blizzard have announced. If you're a steady player, still hanging in there, hey, draw a confident circle. If you're neither of these and don't…
