Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth brings Warcraft 3 into StarCraft 2, as is free now on the StarCraft 2 Arcade.
It seems that fans of the original Warcraft strategy games (remember those?), who have been waiting patiently for Warcraft 4 may have a little reprieve in the form of an amazing StarCraft 2 mod. Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth, which is now available for free in the SC2 arcade, brings Warcraft 3 into StarCraft 2, with revamped graphics and additional features.
Today marks the launch of the mod’s alpha, which only contains the “Turtle Rock” map, but the developers claim that more maps will be added rapidly. Some of the key new features of the remake include:
- Better graphics engine
- New models of units, heroes, buildings, doodads and etc.
- Opportunity for modmakers to create their own mods and maps in Warcraft style
- Better control system and interface
Additionally, players need only the free StarCraft 2: Starter Edition to play, which effectively means that you can now play Warcraft 3 for free.
