New WarCraft III Shots, Beta Info
10:15 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gaming site Game Over Online recently added their own two cents to the ever-burgeoning pile of WarCraft III previews available online ever since the beta testing period began. Though the preview doesn't cover much in the way of new details, it does distinguish itself by making a huge number of high-quality screenshots available that show off everything from various structures to battles involving multiple units.

One of the interesting details that is brought up regarding the beta is the dominance of the Orcs in the current ladders:

Each race has its own type of units with different abilities and unique buildings with special features and upgrades. All of the races are fun to play and have their differences as well as play strategies. From what Iíve seen, it looks like they are all pretty well balanced against each other so far, but the online player ladder for the top 1000 players seems to have a lot more people on it with Orcs than any other race.
Players wondering just how good WC3 looks in action should definitely give this preview a look-see, as it has more than enough screenshots to convince even the most jaded player that WC3 may just be the next big thing in RTS titles.

In related news, GameSpot has a new update on the ongoing beta for the game. New patches from Blizzard have tweaked the title's gameplay even more, and many new changes are being made to help balance the monstrous title. For all of the information, be sure to check out the article at GameSpot now.
