Warcraft III: Reforged releasing January 28


3:00pm Pacific, to be exact

We don't have to wait much longer for Warcraft III: Reforged – it's launching for PC on January 28, 2020. It'll be playable through the Battle.net app, and the standard edition of the game costs $29.99.

In a blog post, Blizzard said it needed "a little extra development time for finishing touches."

This remaster of Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne has updated "characters, structures, environments, animations, and graphical effects," but here's the crazy thing: "Players will be able to do battle with anyone who plays Warcraft III, regardless of whether they're playing the original or Reforged."

There's also a new World Editor, which means tower defense, MOBAs, and other custom games. As much as I'm itching to play through the whole saga again (there are seven campaigns!), I'm reminded of how much time I spent outside of the story, messing around with other players in bizarre user games.

Warcraft III holds such a special place in my heart. It was my summer jam for several years in a row.
