Warcraft III Interview, Info
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Warcraftiii.net has been busy lately, gathering information about the game that is the focus of their obsession from a trip to the recent ECTS 2000 expo. They've talked to Blizzard's Bill Roper extensively, and have posted a long interview with him about the game. If you've been looking for more information on Warcraft III, definitely check out this Q&A, as it covers just about everything. Here's a clip about the storyline behind this title:
WarCraftIII.Net: Can you give us any more information the storyline?After you read through the interview, check out their description of the demo Roper gave them of the game in action. As is expected, they go into great detail about each step he walked them through, and there are even a few images available to illustrate their points.
Bill: The biggest thing with the storyline I think is we really want to focus on it, similar to how we told the story in Brood War where it's one big epic storyline that gets told as you go through the different races. For anyone that's a fan of the WarCraft universe you're going to see some familiar faces, some characters are going to pop up that are not only in WarCraft II but all the way back to the original WarCraft. Our goal is to make it a very fun experience for no one who's played before but for those real core WarCraft fans they're going to see some stuff in the story that they're going to think we have forgotten about. They'll be like "Oh wow, I can't believe they remembered about that character!" It's going to be really neat, it's going to be really exciting. Chris Metzen who wrote the story for WarCraft II and its expansion is working on that. From a storyline stand point it's going to be the best we've done so far.

Warcraft III is set to be released late next year, though Blizzard has been known to push back a release date or two... The game will be their first full-3D title, though they are working hard on a software renderer so that a 3D card won't be required.
