New Warcraft III Images
2:08 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Our partner Stomped pointed us towards this screen shot gallery on GameSpot featuring Blizzard's upcoming 'role-playing strategy' title Warcraft III. Ten new images reveal this 3D-accelerated title in all of its glory; it looks quite handsome, even though it is far from Beta status in the development cycle.


Blizzard seems to have moved to a full-3D engine while retaining the unique look and character of the original two Warcraft titles. We've seen this game demonstrated twice, and the gameplay and action will be instantly familiar to fans of this series, but the addition of role-playing elements and scripted encounters will add depth to the game. Resource gathering has also been reduced in emphasis in order to focus the game on development of your Hero character and management of a small party of adventurers.


Recently this title has undergone several changes in camera perspective; this viewing angle seems to have changed once again, compared to the version of the game we saw at IMG, where it was actually quite similar to Warcraft II. Several magical spells are also in evidence, as well as buildings and attacks in progress. Rumor has it that Blizzard will announce the fifth "race" you will be able to play as in the game quite soon; currently there are Humans, Orcs, Undead and Demon races. Check out these screen shots and the official web site for more details.
