More Warcraft III from ECTS
10:09 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Gamecenter has posted an in-depth look at Warcraft III from the recent ECTS Expo. This upcoming Blizzard title is wowing everyone who sees it, as is to be expected. In the following snippet, the preview explains how the small number of resources in the game will be a new twist to the gameplay:

With resources in short supply, you had better spend that money wisely, and in Warcraft III that means heroes. You can still build grunts and peons and the like, but nowhere near as many as in the older games. In addition, heroes are far more powerful adversaries than a humble grunt. Send a bunch of grunts at a hero, and the chances are they won't come home. Blizzard has gone to great lengths to make sure that the gameplay stays focused on building heroes, increasing their abilities (spells and the like), and then keeping those heroes alive. Gone are the days of building a vast army of cheap units and overwhelming your opponents. In Warcraft III you need to learn to care for your heroes and build a much smaller army.
We're very much looking forward to Warcraft III's release late next year. Check out Gamecenter's huge screen shot and concept art gallery for the game to see what the excitement is all about. VoodooExtreme also grabbed five new shots of the in-game action, so have a look at those as well.
