Get ready to build some barracks and click some peons, Warcraft III: Reforged is coming out this week for PC and Mac.
At first glance, remastering 2002’s Warcraft III seems like a fairly straightforward task. Take the ugly bits and make them pretty. Overhaul the cutscenes. Give all the muddy terrain and building textures a 2018 makeover. Redo Arthas’ weird face. For Blizzard’s classics team, though, that’s just the beginning.
DOTA might be the most high profile WarCraft III mod to be turned into an actual video game, but it’s not the only one. There’s also Ruin, a “top-down arcade style arena brawler” based on a popular old WCIII mod called Warlock Brawl.
