Warcraft III Interview
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A lengthy new interview with Blizzard's Rob Pardo has been posted at GameSpot, discussing the recently-announced fifth race in Warcraft III, the night elves. The five-page interview covers a wide variety of topics surounding this newest race, including their playing style, heroes, and place in world of Azeroth. Here's an excerpt describing the units:

GS: So how else will the night elf units differ from the other race's units?


RP: They'll have a lot of ranged units. The night elf society is split down the middle, and we decided to [differentiate the units] along gender lines. So the female units are generally going to be more like Amazonian units. They are the night elf side's attackers, and, as a matter of fact, they are all ranged attackers. So you have the archer, the sentinel, the assassin. Then you look on the male side, and they're all druids. That's where you get your magic. It all comes out of the male side.

Be sure to head over and read through the rest of the interview for a ton of other info on the night elves. It sounds like Blizzard is making good progress on the game and still trying to get it out before the end of 2001. Hopefully a Mac version will be released not to soon after the PC version is out.
