It’s not every day that you get updates for names. However at a Blizzard forum post by Pete Stilwell (a senior producer in Blizzard Entertainment) we learned some new facts about an upgrade coming into the real-time strategy game, Warcraft III.
The largest changes include 24-player lobbies in addition to 16:9 widescreen support. For the larger lobbies, team colours have been revised and enlarged. For reference, players initially were just able to get 12 players at a Warfract III lobby. Widescreen support is considering the game released in 2002. Bookends have been added to the in-game interface in addition to pillars in menus to prevent a elongated appearance.
Blizzard has generated a whole bunch of equilibrium changes to maps and heroes in the game. The modifications are small, the development team’s objective is to create small adjustments. Blizzard has bigger ideas according to the forums post. Eventually, for the more creative Warcraft III player, Blizzard has included some rather specific World Editor improvements and changes.
Although this might re-ignite discussion among the fanbase which Blizzard’s devotion to the name may indicate a remaster very similar to Starcraft: Remastered may be on the way, nothing especially was noted to imply that by programmer Blizzard.
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos released on July 3, 2002; the game’so called expansion, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, published nearly a year later on July 1, 2003. Both names are available for PC and Mac. For the particular post notes and facts, take a look at all of the changes in the Blizzard forum post.
