Warcraft 3 is Becoming a remaster in Warcraft 3: Reforged. Announced at BlizzCon 2018, Warcraft 3: Reforged for PC has a 2019 release date along with the Warcraft 3: Reforged cost is $30 (approximately Rs. 2,100) for the standard version and $40 (near Rs. 2,800) for the Spoils of War Edition which comes with, based on Blizzard”unique skins for four of the game’s hero units, as well as a plethora of in-game bonuses for a number of other Blizzard games, like a grisly Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, the Third War cardback for Hearthstone, and more.”
“Warcraft 3 is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in what we have done since,” explained J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment in a prepared statement. “A job such as Warcraft 3: Reforged is not something we undertake lightly, partially because of this heritage, but more importantly, because we know what it means to our players.”
Formerly, a Warcraft 3 remaster was rumored after Warcraft 3 received a massive update earlier in the year. Blizzard issued a fairly large patch into the traditional real-time strategy match. Additions include widescreen support for Warcraft 3 and 24-player lobbies and a host of equilibrium fixes to its own heroes. Along with this, Blizzard noted that this will be the last patch that supports Windows XP players.
“We adore and continue to encourage our Warcraft 3 community, and we are eager to see classic competitors like Manuel”Grubby” Schenkhuizen, Park”Lyn” Joon, and Kim”ReMinD” Sung Sik test out all of the newest PTR [public test kingdom ] changes for themselves–including balance adjustments to many personalities, widescreen support, and much more — all playable today on the PTR,” a post from Blizzard read at the moment.
This seems similar to Blizzard’s approach with Starcraft. The original got an update and support prior to the announcement of a remaster. What’s more is, it moved free.
