E3: Warcraft III Trailer, Movies
8:31 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Following our previous news on Blizzard's upcoming Role-Playing Strategy game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos we have some fresh eye-candy! Blizzard have been showing the title off to an eager crowd at E3 with new levels for attendees to play and some tasty movies to drool over. Combining strategical elements based around managing resources and building units for battle, along with missions and quests as found in RPG's, all encased in a gorgeous 3D environment, this is surely a game not to miss. Play will be in either of four races: Orcs, Humans, Undead and Night elves, with the usual multi-player battle.net features.

The fansite WarcraftIII.net recently scored a new cinematic trailer of the game. It's another Bink movie, so make sure you have the Mac Bink player to view the 29 MB file. Unfortunately the site is currently swamped (much like yesterday and the Max Payne/DNF videos). Stay tuned for more info on mirrors as they appear across the web.
IGN PC also has three relatively small (2.5-3.5 MB) Quicktime movies direct from the show floor. Although taken with a hand-held camera, the in-game views and handy size of these movies makes them a must-get for all fans of Blizzard's previous titles. Warcraft III is expected to be released for the Mac by the end of the year, for a near simultaneous release with the PC version. For more details check out our preview or visit the official Warcraft III site.
