Perhaps the biggest downside to the success of World of Warcraft
is that we haven't seen a Warcraft
RTS since Warcraft III
in 2002 -- or 2003, if you'd prefer to count from the release of The Frozen Throne
expansion. Either way, that's a long time to go without any classic RTS Warcraft
goodness. The Armies of Azeroth
team is trying to fix this problem with a StarCraft II
mod that recreates Warcraft III
on the StarCraft II
From the trailer
above, we've got to say that the results look awesome
. Sure, we've played Warcraft III
plenty of times, but, while there's no release date for this mod, we're eager to check it out all over again with the tech updates the past decade has made possible.
