Warcraft 3: Reforged answers age-old questions posed by RTS and Blizzard fans alike:
"What if Blizzard made Warcraft 4?"
Well, it would probably look a lot like Warcraft 3: Reforged. While the game is a strict remastering of the legendary RTS that features identical mechanics and gameplay, the numerous patches leading up to Reforged has changed the game in several significant ways. New unit abilities, new items, and a whole load of nuanced changes appreciated only by the competitive crowd has breathed new life into the 17-year-old RTS.
And this week, Blizzard released the first look at the Reforged's handling of the mysterious Night Elves. At BlizzCon 2018, we had already seen how the Humans, Orcs, and Undead races look but the new image uploaded to Playwarcraft3.com shows the most refined (debatable) race in Azeroth in full HD glory.
The image appears to showcase Malfurion and some sort of Night Elf Assassin that may be the model of the basic tier 1 Archer unit. While Malfurion is not a playable unit in Warcraft 3's multiplayer mode, he is featured heavily in the campaign.
EDITORS NOTE: It appears that the night elf units shown may be a Druid of the Talon (not Malfurion) and may also possible be the Dark Ranger hero model (Not a Night Elf Archer). This preview image was removed from playwarcraft3.com for the time being.
Warcraft 3: Reforged is scheduled to be released sometime in 2019. For more details, visit Playwarcraft3.com
Warcraft 3 is my one true love and I will challenge anyone to a game of Super Smash Brothers Melee.
