Nyheden blev annonceret på Blizzards officielle hjemmeside forud for dette års Blizzcon event i Anaheim, Californien. Multiplayer beta inkluderer begrænset adgang til orc og human race inden for 1v1 og 2v2 matchmaking. Ifølge Blizzard tilføjes Night Elf og Undead til betaen i de kommende uger sammen med flere spil-modes.
Invitationer til betaen vil blive sendt i de kommende uger, men flere brugere rapporterer allerede, at de har modtaget deres invitation. “Initial invitations will go out in waves to those who have pre-purchased the Spoils of War edition of the game and subsequent waves of invitations will go to additional players, such as those who have pre-purchased the standard edition of Warcraft III: Reforged”, fortæller Blizzard.
Blizzard annoncerede officielt reimagined version af både Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos og The Frozen Throne under Blizzcon 2018.
“For Warcraft III: Reforged, every character, structure, and environment has been recreated to emphasize the depth, dimension, and personality of this rough-hewn world. The Warcraft III saga, which spans more than 60 campaign missions, enjoys an epic retelling in Reforged, with over four hours of updated in-game cutscenes and rerecorded voice-overs that breathe new life into the earliest renditions of key characters like Sylvanas Windrunner and Arthas Menethil”
“Warcraft III is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we’ve done since,’ said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment upon the game's announcement. ‘A project like Warcraft III: Reforged isn’t something we undertake lightly, partly because of this legacy, but more importantly, because we know what it means to our players"
