Blizzard Updates Warcraft III
8:48 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Blizzard has bumped its RTS Warcraft III to version 1.18. Applicable for both the original WC3 as well as The Frozen Throne expansion, the update contains new maps in addition to various tweaks and balance changes to each of the races.

Some of the notable changes are as follows:

  • Six new maps from our Bonus Map program, including Excavation Site (4 players), Echo Isle (2), Hinterland Raid (6), Ruins of Stratholme (6), Azeroth Grand Prix (8), and Extreme Candy Wars 2004 (8). The six-player map, River of Souls, has also been updated to allow AMM play.
  • Balance changes, including reduced build time for the Undead Banshee, increased gold cost for the Staff of Teleportation, and changes to the abilities of several neutral Heroes.
  • New environment and floating text functions for the world editor, as well as new triggers and unit states.
  • Numerous fixes to units and abilities for all four races.
A full list of update changes can be found at Blizzard's support pages.

Those interested in downloading the patches as stand-alone packages can find download links for both WC3 and TFT at Blizzard's site as well.
