IMG Previews Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
12:30 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a first look of the highly anticipated strategy expansion Warcraft III: The Frozen Thone. In the preview, Jay Swartzfeger takes a long look at how this title will push the very popular original Warcraft III to new areas. The article looks especially at new heroes, units, and buildings, as well as changes to the title's gameplay.

Here's an excerpt:

After playing The Frozen Throne, the gameplay changes are subtle, yet significant.
For starters, the pace of the game has changed because overall, many building prices have been lowered. This has allows the opening game to speed up significantly. Also, units seem to be completed sooner, making it quicker to build your army. Conversely, upgrading your race's main building (e.g., upgrading from a Town Hall to a Keep) takes more resources and time now, taking longer to get those Tier 2 and Tier 3 units. Buildings and upgrades have also been balanced to require more lumber overall. Since lumber is more at a premium, upkeep has been tweaked to account for more wood gathering peons.
Head over and check out the rest of the article now.
