WarCraft III Patch Released
11:46 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released the long awaited 1.13 patch for their popular real time strategy game WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne. Besides balance changes to maps and the different races, the new patch also adds the final two acts of the Orc bonus campaign in the expansion pack.

From the list of changes:

  • Acts II & III, the conclusion acts to the bonus Orc campaign contained in The Frozen Throne, are included in this patch. To play these levels, you can simply click the "Chapter Two - Old Hatreds" link from the Bonus Campaign screen. If you have completed Act I, your Heroes will carry over to Act II. Otherwise, your Heroes will be default-level Heroes with basic starting items.
  • Warcraft III now supports binding an email address to your Battle.net account, so that you can recover your password at a later stage, similar to the functionality that was added to D2.
  • Race selection on the scheduled game dialog (tournament finals) is now saved for future scheduled games.
  • To read the full list of changes, two helpful links to Battle.net have been provided below.

    To download and install the patch, just launch Reign of Chaos or The Frozen Throne and connect to Battle.net and the patch will download and install automatically.
