Warcraft 3 is getting a remaster at Warcraft 3: Reforged. Announced at BlizzCon 2018, Warcraft 3: Reforged for PC includes a 2019 release date along with the Warcraft 3: Reforged cost is $30 (around Rs. 2,100) for the standard version and $40 (near Rs. 2,800) for the Spoils of War Edition that includes, based on Blizzard”unique skins for four of the game’s hero units, in addition to a host of in-game bonuses for a number of other Blizzard games, like a grisly Meat Wagon bracket for World of Warcraft, the Third War cardback for Hearthstone, and much more.”
“Warcraft 3 is monumentally important to us at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we have done since,” explained J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment in a prepared statement. “A project such as Warcraft 3: Reforged is not something we undertake lightly, partly because of this legacy, but what’s more, because we know exactly what it means to our players.”
Blizzard issued a rather large patch to the classic real-time strategy game. Additions include widescreen support for Warcraft 3 and 24-player lobbies and a slew of equilibrium fixes to its heroes. Along with this, Blizzard noted this will be the last patch that supports Windows XP players.
“We love and continue to encourage our Warcraft 3 community, and we are excited to see classic competitions such as Manuel”Grubby” Schenkhuizen, Park”Lyn” Joon, and Kim”ReMinD” Sung Sik try out all of the new PTR [public test realm] changes for themselves–including balance adjustments to many heroes, widescreen support, and more — all playable today on the PTR,” a post from Blizzard read at the moment.
This looks similar to Blizzard’s approach with Starcraft. The first got an update and support prior to the announcement of a remaster. What’s more is, it moved free.
