Warcraft III: Frozen Throne Impressions Posted
8:56 AM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story

The gaming network HomeLan Federation recently posted their impressions on the public beta test of The Frozen Throne, the upcoming expansion for Blizzard Entertainment's staggeringly popular game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.

Since Blizzard started accepting beta applications two months ago, thousands of gamers have joined the internet battlefield to beat each other over the head with the wide range of new units and spells offered in the expansion that, months before its final release, already looks likely to become a blockbuster.

Here's an excerpt from the HomeLan preview:

The multiplayer elements in Warcraft III are fairly easy to check out thanks to the fairly open way Blizzard handled its beta tests but as usual, the single player elements in Frozen Throne are not a part of the beta that Blizzard is releasing to their testers. There will reportedly be two new single player campaigns in the expansion; one will be a more traditional campaign that follows up on the end of Warcraft III, but the second campaign may be the more interesting of the two. This campaign will reportedly feature more RPG like features (something which was promised for Warcraft III when it was originally announced) it will also showcase new features that will be included in the revamped mission editor for the game, including the abilities to add cut scenes and voice overs for your own single player campaigns.
Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is expected to be released in the summer of 2003.
