While Blizzard’s Warcraft franchise is now focused on the World of Warcraft MMORPG and the Hearthstone game, many gamers probably still fondly recall the original game as a real-time strategy game that they played on their computers, with cheat codes such as “it is a good day to die” and “make it so” that gave gamers a leg up over the computer. While it remains unknown if Blizzard will ever release a Warcraft IV, especially since StarCraft 2 is the developer and community’s eSport of choice, one particular modder has decided to take it upon himself to release his own take on the game.
Dubbed “Warcraft RTS: Alliance and Horde”, it is essentially the modder’s take on what Warcraft IV could be like. The game was built using the StarCraft 2 editor and interestingly comes with some features that have been borrowed from World of Warcraft and will also come with melee maps that gamers can use to play against other players. As expected it will feature two factions, the Horde and Alliance, with 14 buildings, 16 units, 18 heroes, and over 50 creeps to fight. The mod’s creator, StevenLuo, invested so much of his time and energy into the project that he has since quit his job, talk about dedication!
