Warcraft III Chat Log
10:34 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Fan site Warcraft III.net has posted the chat log of the recent chat with Blizzard's Rob Pardo and Jay Patel, who answered questions about their upcoming gameWarcraft III. The chat reveals a lot of new info about the game such as details on new units like the Dwarf Gyrocopter, which is a spy unit for Humans. Blizzard also said they will reveal the fifth and finale race in the January edition of Computer Games Magazine, a nice exclusive for them. They also specify that they will support OpenGL and Direct 3D, but not Glide, with the game's 3D engine.


Here is a excerpt from the chat related to the Mac platform:

Do you plan to have a simultaneous Macintosh / PC release?


The launch of Diablo II on the Macintosh was our fastest to date and it is the goal of our Macintosh teams to keep the PC and Mac releases as close in time as possible.

The chat log is certainly something to read if you are a fan. They also mentioned that they will probably released a public beta of W3, but nothing will be released anytime soon. They are aiming at a Spring 2001 release.
