I certainly do like that kind of thing. Warcraft 3 + Expansion pack was freaking amazing.

It actually looks really nice. They've clearly upgraded the renderer a ton to support the new visuals.

I'm a bit mixed that they're upgrading the campaigns (the level they're showing off is completely different from the original) and redoing all the cutscenes (the ones they've shown look stilted, with the higher fidelity models and the old voice acting, with just basic camera angles and animations straight out of 2003). I'm not against it, but I don't know that it's really going to be an improvement.

It does sound like they plan on recreating all the cinematics, which is amazing (the upgraded teaser looked fantastic). Especially since they've been cutting way back on cinematics for their newer releases (RoS and LotV both had only a single cinematic).

Wowhead has been showcasing a lot of the unit model art for WC3 Reforged lately - follow the link for the details, but here's a taster for you. Look familiar?

Anybody play the beta yet? I would’ve bought it if I could get my friend from high school to play, (we played all the time) but alas he’s a very busy doctor man now...

The first Mac beta is horrible. Low framerate, but CPU and GPU usage is low, plus there is an helper "BlizzardBrowser" Electron app consuming a whole core. Hopefully it will get better.

The updated graphics are weird.

:facepalm: Can you figure out what it does? What happens if you force quit it when the game is running?

Could you elaborate?

I don't know. I killed it and game got stuck in the menu.

The new 3d models are more realistic and high resolution when you zoom in, but maybe too detailed when looked at a distance. Then there are some effects like water that looks the same as the original one from 15 years ago.

Either way, it will need so many months of bug fixes…

Speaking of, the 8.3 patch of WoW, which was released a week ago and contains the final raid of the expansion, plus a bunch of other content, is unplayable on many Macs due to a show-stopping bug (which seems to be related to Intel GPU overheats). People, understandably, are not happy.
