GOG now offers the original Warcraft and Warcraft II

I wasn't sure we'd ever see the day

Diablo appearing on GOG was one thing, but I'm unreasonably excited to revisit Warcraft's humble beginnings. As of today, Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II Battle.net Edition are available digitally on the site. You can grab them for $5.99 and $9.99, respectively, or go for a $14.99 bundle with both.

The first Warcraft "plays and feels just like the original from 1994," albeit updated to run on our current systems, whereas GOG's release of Warcraft II has two versions accessible from the launcher. "The classic one allows for the authentic experience and a fully functional multiplayer with Blizzard's Battle.net online gaming service. The updated version comes with a number of fixes to provide full compatibility with modern machines as well as hi-resolution support and upscaling."

This is such a long time coming, and I can't wait. I have so many fond memories of struggling to play the original Warcraft on my uncle's laughably huge '90s laptop but still loving the game anyway. I can't see me fiddling with firewall ports for multiplayer, but I do think a full campaign run is in order.

Love me some troll axethrowers.
