Blizzard Posts New Warcraft III Shot
10:55 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

For those that just can't get enough Warcraft III-related media, Blizzard has recently posted a new screen shot of their upcoming RTS title at their official WC3 site. For those who have been living in a hole somewhere, WC3 is the latest incarnation of Blizzard's highly successful RTS games, featuring several races battling for dominance in a war-torn world.


This latest screen shot features Andromath the Archmage, one of the Heroes from the Human race. Archmages are described as "crotchety old wizards are called upon to defend humanity with all the magical powers at their disposal." As the screen shot shows, Archmages travel atop steeds and wield magical staves.


Also shown in the screen shot is a Human army embattled with the enigmatic Undead race. Though Skeletons, Necromancers, and some kind of large bats make up the bulk of the Undead shown, the prize definitely goes to the very large, very frightening Undead Frost Wyrm that is shown attacking with a cone of frost breath.


This game just continues to look more and more impressive. The release date for this game is currently still set at around early 2002, with Blizzard shooting for a simultaneous PC/Mac release. Though this release date is subject to change, as is typical with all Blizzard titles, no one ever seems to mind when they see the quality and polish of the final product.
