If you're a fan of the fantasy RTS game Warcraft and have ever wondered what it would be like to play one of your units in an RPG, the wait may soon be over. A recent feature at Gamers.com previews Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft. An adaptation of its popular Warcraft series into a massively multiplayer online role playing game, the preview mainly talks about the blending of the best features of Warcraft with the ease of interface and playability of Blizzard's Diablo:
You can think of World of WarCraft as an online version of Diablo. Just as in the Diablo Action/RPG series, you control one character with an easy to use interface, skill system, and simple but addicting combat.The preview is overwhelmingly positive, with references to new features like mini-maps, a 'stellar' new graphics engine, seamless 'zoning' into buildings and more. The article also has several screenshots. Although no mention is made of a Mac version in the Gamers.com piece, on WoW's FAQ page Blizzard states that 'the game will initially be available for PCs.' Although not a guarantee of a Mac version, the company has traditionally made its major titles for both platforms.
