World Of Warcraft, Warcraft III Patches Released
8:39 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment officially released patches for two of their highly-popular titles yesterday.

The World Of Warcraft 1.17 update, which was previously released as a beta version on the first of the month, includes over nine pages of gameplay tweaks and enhancements, including the opening of the much-publicised Deeprun Tram:

The Gnomish Engineering Corps has been hard at work building a subway to connect the great cities of Ironforge and Stormwind City. Final work on this new mass transit system was completed recently, allowing us to announce the Grand Opening of the Deeprun Tram! Two trains make round trip runs between Stormwind City and Ironforge regularly, allowing quick and easy access to all your shopping and training needs. If you happen to miss a train, you only need to wait a few minutes for a new one to appear. We only ask that you be careful during your trip as the run out of the tunnel can be long and uneventful should you happen to fall off the tram during transit.
The Warcraft III update, also bringing the current game version number up to 1.17, boasts a whole slew of bug fixes, map enhancements, and gameplay balance changes for both the Reign Of Chaos original game, and The Frozen Throne expansion pack. And while both updates are available through the links below, players interested in getting their hands on any of these three titles should head over to the IMG Store, where the Warcraft III titles can either be purchased separately or combined in the Warcraft III Battle Chest bundle, and where pre-orders for World of Warcraft are being taken:
