Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, the highly anticipated sequel to Blizzard's #1-selling PC game series, will be available at retail outlets worldwide in multiple languages beginning on July 3, 2002. In the game, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth a generation after the end of the Second War between the Orcs and the Humans. The fragile peace that had since settled over the land is now on the verge of being shattered, for a dark power has returned after thousands of years to carry out its nefarious plans. Two new races - the Undead Scourge and the Night Elves - emerge to join the fray, as players follow a single epic storyline through four successive campaigns. Players can also take the battle into their own hands in an enhanced multiplayer mode, playable on local area networks and
exclusively over the Internet on Battle.net®, the largest online service of its kind in the world.
Since its debut in 1994, the #1-selling Warcraft series has won industry acclaim and has shattered sales records worldwide with over 5 million copies sold*. In 1995, Blizzard followed the well-received Warcraft: Orcs and Humans(tm) with the critically acclaimed Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness(tm), which won multiple Game of the Year awards and is still considered by many critics to be one of the best games ever made.
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos will be available for Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP and Macintosh® formats, at a price of approximately $55-$60. The game will also be available directly from Blizzard at (800) 953-SNOW and the Blizzard Homepage. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has received a Teen rating from the ESRB.
