Warcraft 3 Reforged_05

Blizzard’s Warcraft 3: Reforged launched yesterday and immediately faced criticism for bugs, underwhelming cutscenes and multiplayer issues. The new patch version 1.32 doesn’t fix every issue but it does remedy a few while introducing several features. It’s actually interesting how much this patch contains, including three prologue missions from the original demo for Warcraft 3.

Updates have been made for difficulty, auto-saves and terrain in all missions while Dalaran, Silvermoon and Stratholme have had their art and layouts updated. Characters in the campaign, along with other visual assets, have also seen updates and it’s possible to switch between the Classic and Reforged modes’ visuals and content.

Players can also use traditional hotkey layouts and link their Classic accounts to maintain their stats. If that weren’t enough, you can now queue for heads-up battles in 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and so on with the new matchmaking system. Check out the full patch notes below for more details and stay tuned for subsequent updates.
