Q&A With Warcraft 3's Bill Roper
8:28 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A quick new interview has been posted at Warcraft 3 Center, talking with Blizzard PR man Bill Roper about the current status of Warcraft 3. As you may remember, Blizzard recently held (PC-only) beta signups, and they plan to test the game with a limited number of players for a few months to hammer out its gameplay. In the Q&A, Roper is asked a number of fairly specific questions about certain units and details in the game.
With the move to a fully 3D game, Blizzard is forced to make some changes from the standard gameplay of the previous titles in the series. Your heroes will play a big part in your success, and Roper explains here the number each race will have:
Q: Currently how many different units has each race available to them? For the rest of the scoop, head over to Warcraft 3 Center now. Also be sure to give Blizzard's own game page a look, as they've recently posted a new in-game screen shot.
A: Currently, each race has three Heroes and ten units. Some of the races also have creatures that can be summoned to bolster their forces. All of the races can also hire mercenaries to strengthen their numbers.
While no specifics about a Mac release have been nailed down yet, we do know Warcraft 3 will run on Mac OS X and it should be a nearly simultaneous release.
