Warcraft III: Reforged is out now on Windows and Mac, bringing back the 2002 classic with new visuals, rebalanced gameplay, and a number of quality-of-life improvements. It's available through the Battle.net launcher for $30.

Originally announced in 2018, Warcraft III: Reforged collects both the original campaign, Reign of Chaos, as well as its expansion, The Frozen Throne, into one package. Both campaigns have been brushed over to improve several gameplay elements and overall balance while maintaining the classic feel of the real-time strategy game. New visuals bring the four playable races to new life, with improvements extending to maps, environments, structures, UI, and more.

Warcraft III: Reforged also brings improvements to multiplayer, with matchmaking, custom lobbies, and friends support through Battle.net. In addition, Blizzard will also be bringing in the classic version of Warcraft III into the same client as Reforged, so that players can challenge each other online irrespective of which version of the game they are playing. Blizzard also hopes to support all old mods for Warcraft III, although there's uncertainly as to whether each one will transition to the new client smoothly.

In addition to the standard version, Blizzard is offering a Spoils of War Edition that includes several digital items for other Blizzard titles. Along with hero skins for Reforged itself, you can expect to get a Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, a Mal'Ganis pet for Diablo III, a variety of UI skins for both Starcraft II and Starcraft Remastered, an assortment of player icons and sprays for Overwatch and more. The Spoils of War Edition retails for $40.
