Warcraft III Update, Images
11:17 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

GA-Strategy has posted three new images and a progress report on Blizzard's upcoming RTS/RPG Warcraft III. This title, which attempts to combine the classic gameplay of the Warcraft series with RPG elements and a realtime 3D engine, is finally functional in multiplayer and making good progress. Here is an excerpt from the update, with a quote from developer Rob Pardo:

"Development is starting to proceed more rapidly," Rob confides. "Most of our development tools are in place and we are generating a lot of the in-game content now. Hopefully by the end of this year we will have all five races functional and the game playable in multiplayer."


When asked if players could expect to see a demo of the game before its release, Rob admitted: "it hasn't been decided yet, but usually we do not release a demo until after the project is finished since to make a demo, we would have to delay the release of the game. We figure our fans would rather have the game sooner, then get a demo before the game is released."

We have to agree with that philosophy. It looks as if this title is still a long way from release, but we look forward to seeing a very mature version of it at next year's E3. Warcraft III will have a simultaneous Mac/PC release, 'when it is done.'
