New Warcraft III Hero Details
11:12 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story

Blizzard has released the details of another major hero in their upcoming game, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. In case you missed this gallery of animated heroes, Blizzard is slowly cranking up the amount of official information on this game in anticipation of a Winter release. Heroes will play a pivotal role in this 3D RTS, becoming powerful warriors who augment the power of your troops and cast devastating spells and enchantments. Here is the description of the Tauren Chieftain:

These elder Tauren warriors lead their Tribes in daily life as well as in battle. Ceremoniously decked with the ancient totems of their Tribes, Chiefs uphold the honor and simplicity of Tauren culture. When roused by battle, the gigantic Chiefs employ enormous warblades which are capable of tearing through solid trees with one mighty swipe. The Chiefs are fascinated by the Orcs, especially their young leader, Thrall. The Chiefs see an opportunity to help the Orcs return to their traditional roots by providing a strong example of honor and courage through all Tauren warriors.
Included in the description is some of the concept art for creating the character. This brings the hero count up to six that Blizzard has released so far, spanning across several of the races in the upcoming Real Time Strategy/Role Playing Game. Be sure to watch for more! Read through IMG's hands-on preview of the title for more information.
