WarCraft 3: Reforged: Should appear later this year; Deleted story and cutscene supplements

Although the WarCraft 3: Reforged multiplayer beta test was launched just a week and a half ago, Blizzard Entertainment is committed to releasing the revised WarCraft 3 remake later this year. Robert Bridenbecker (Executive Producer and Vice President of the Classic Games division at Blizzard Entertainment) confirmed this plan in an interview at BlizzCon 2019. In the recent investor conference of Activision Blizzard, December 2019 was (unsurprisingly) cited as the release month.
However, the developers have also deleted some ideas and planned (more up to date) changes. So Bridenbecker said at Polygon, that they want to completely keep to the original story, in contrast to the original Anbldigung. Actually, some adjustments to the story should be made to put it better in the context of World of Warcraft. Some characters like Jaina and Sylvanas should be further developed (we reported) as they would play a central role in the current history of World of Warcraft. In general, the story of WarCraft 3 should be brought a bit more in the direction of online role-playing games. Also completely new voice recordings were planned. These plans were rejected. Bridenbecker said that they had received a lot of feedback from the fans and that these adjustments did not turn out to be so popular. They therefore want to orientate themselves on the original and not expand the story. The revised cutscenes were also deleted (Back2WarCraft). Instead, the original style should be maintained. There might be some new camera angles, but the basic presentation should not change. The "improved cutscenes" with cinematic close-ups and Co. were demonstrated at the BlizzCon 2018 in the Stratholme mission (The elimination of Stratholme) (to the video). There is already speculation as to whether the parent company could have scaled down the budget for WarCraft 3: Reforged and therefore removed those originally planned features.

However, the "simple difficulty level" for the campaign missions announced last year will still be included, Bridenbecker said. Also, you will not be able to select more than 12 units at once (as in the original). This limit could be changed in custom games.

The ladder will not be included in the release version. It will be replenished with the first update as with StarCraft Remastered. Otherwise, the online multiplayer matches are realized via a global matchmaking system (with MMR). Players can join in teams or alone as one of the four peoples in multiplayer modes 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 or Anyone Against Anyone. You will receive a separate score for each faction for the matchmaking system (one account, several MMR values). Multiplayer games of Warcraft 3 and Warcraft 3: Reforged will be fully compatible (Crossplay). Both versions will receive simultaneous balance and game updates.

Reforged has a world editor (map editor), which is constantly being expanded. New triggers (triggers), support for LUA, new tools for importing models, and many more enhancements are in the works. In principle, all old maps / modifications made for WarCraft 3 should work in WarCraft 3: Reforged or require minor adjustments, said Blizzard Classic Games front man. All "Assets" (graphics, etc.) of the game have been completely rebuilt for Reforged and not just upscaled to HD or recolored.

Pictures of the revised unit and building models:

WarCraft 3: Reforged will feature seven single-player campaigns with 62 missions from WarCraft 3: Reign of Chaos and WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne. Also the bonus campaign (The Founding of Durotar) around Rexxar as well as the prologue (Exodus of the Horde) should be included. The expensive cinematics / cutscenes are scaled up, but not completely rebuilt like the intro video shown at the BlizzCon 2018. In conclusion, the developers could imagine bringing more content after the release, but most likely no campaign and no fifth race. The beta is meanwhile steadily expanding in the next few days / weeks. The undead have recently been unlocked as a playable faction.
