New WarCraft III Expansion Units
7:55 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment recently made an update to their Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne page, showing off some of the new units that will be featured within. For those unfamiliar with The Frozen Throne, It's the upcoming expansion to Blizzard's hit Real-Time Startegy game, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The expansion features new heroes and units for each race, along with a new single player campaign and an enhanced World Editor.

Here's Blizzard's description of the expansion:

Many months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the Battle of Mount Hyjal?

The stalwart night elves, led by the Arch Druid, Furion Stormrage and the Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind, have vanished back into the shadows of Ashenvale Forest - intent to heal the ancient lands that were scarred by the Legion?s vile corruption.

The battle-weary orcish Horde, led by the idealistic Warchief, Thrall, has settled in the harsh, eastern hills of the Kalimdor Barrens. Finally able to claim a homeland of their own, the orcs work tirelessly to found and protect their new nation of Durotar.

The human survivors of Lordaeron, under the command of the Sorceress, Jaina Proudmoore, have also settled along the eastern coast of the Barrens. The island citadel of Theramore was erected to safeguard the last, rag-tag remnants of the failing human Alliance.

?And Arthas, the newly crowned King of Lordaeron, has driven the undead Scourge to eradicate the last vestiges of resistance to his iron rule. His kingdom - the once proud bastion of human might and nobility - has become a plagued realm of death and sorrow. Now, driven by haunting visions of the Frozen Throne of Icecrown, Arthas plans to tighten his grip over the rest of the world.

The new units Blizzard is now showing off are the Mountain Giant, a new Night Elf unit, and the Crypt Lord, a new Undead hero. For more info on the expansion, and to check out the new units, follow the link provided below.
