Review

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is the new expansion title to Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, an RTS (Real Time Strategy game) developed by Blizzard based on this popular PC fantasy universe. The game’s plot is placed after the previous game, in which Archimonde was finally destroyed, and the Burning Legion definitively defeated by the alliance between Orcs, Elves and Humans in order to protect Azeroth.

This new expansion to the classic title includes new maps for the campaign and the multiplayer mode, as well as the possibility of downloading and installing further mods to increase its duration and content. The game features new troops, champions and even sea units that changes some aspects of the game and are brought from Warcraft II.

This new expansion to the classic title includes new maps for the campaign and the multiplayer mode

The gameplay of The Frozen Throne remains basically the same as the previous edition with several common points with other similar PC games. In order to build new elements or create units, you will need different resources such as gold or wood. Buildings and troops can have upgrades with new stats such as more defense, attack and additional skills that will help you fight against your enemies. Technically the game is pretty similar, with some fixes regarding visual aspect and general mechanics.

Expanded content

After adding an RPG element with the heroes of each race, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne includes some new characters that increase the variety of the overall game. For example, the Orcs faction receives the Shadow Hunter, a Troll with voodoo magic; Humans get the Blood Mage, a blood elf that can summon a powerful phoenix or the Warden for the night elves, a dangerous assassin unit.

The single-player campaign will introduce you the new units while the story of the game follows its path. The exiled night elf Illidan Stormrage, free of his warden, has allied with the Naga, a water-snake race, in order to defeat the Lich King. These events will take you to play 3 different campaigns for Night Elves, Humans and the Undead following the history or Arthas and his arise to the Frozen Throne, and an Orc additional campaign which features an RPG mode based on the Diablo series.

The multiplayer mode includes new maps in which you can play online with random players or your friends. Additionally you can download third party mods that can add more game modes such as the popular Defense of the Ancients (DotA) that changes completely the concept of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.
