So since more news on WarCraft 3: Reforged is expected at BlizzCon in a few weeks, and since lots of gameplay and in-game art has now leaked out, I thought this might be a good time to get a topic going.
The official site:
The remastered intro cinematic:
A full Human vs Orc match:
The beta isn’t officially available yet, so this is still very much WIP footage.
Anyone else excited for this? What are your hopes and expectations? I sunk many happy hours into this game and can’t wait to try out the remaster.
I’d like to add that there is nothing wrong with any of the comments posted in this topic so far. It is valid to consider how the backlash Blizzard has faced will affect the release of WarCraft 3: Reforged.
People have high expectations of Blizzard, and therefore when it missteps and looks so out of touch with its loyal player base people are naturally very disappointed.
I’m just trying to guard against every Blizzard topic on the forum turning into a discussion about the same thing. It’s fair to raise the points here, but if there is any follow-up discussion I think it is appropriate to create a link to the relevant topics where such issues are being discussed and taking it there.
I remember playing through the whole campaign, only had to use cheats on the last Undead mission. I remember the story being very good with twists in the tale and heroic sacrifices etc. It was a great game.
I don’t know if I’d replay it with the remaster though, just so many new games.
A pity @Sweepslag left out the following video in his first post because this truly highlights what Reforged brings to the table:
The original WC3 story & campaign retold with completely new in-game cutscenes.
Me. I pre-purchased the Spoils of War Edition last year when it was first announced, long before the HS/HK controversy, because I love Blizzard’s RTS titles and this is a complete nostalgia purchase for me. I’m also hoping, however unlikely, that Blizzard may use the interest in Reforged to gauge whether or not to finally start working on WC4.
I also like blizzard RTS and would love to get WC4. Just that gaming has become so much about money and not the love of the Game. That I wonder what message we as consumers send to these big corp when still buying there games when they more interested in pleasing the china government than their customers.
I’m all caught up and all I can say is… Yoh, didn’t think they could do much worse than diablo mobile, but here we are.
It’s not like they even had to make the pizza, they just had to put it in the oven and maybe add some seasoning. Meanwhile, they burnt the pizza, destroyed the oven and capsized an oil tanker in the process.
