A war like you've never experienced. A strategy guide like you've never seen and a collector's book like you'll never find. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has taken years to develop, test and perfect, and is now slated for release on July 3, 2002. The overwhelming excitement surrounding this legendary PC game has prompted BradyGames to publish both the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Official Strategy Guide and The Art of Warcraft, a unique collectible art book.

With this highly anticipated game nearing completion, this summer will mark the first time in years that players will be able to return to the Warcraft universe. Warcraft III immerses players in a compelling, dynamic 3D world, where the fate of four distinct races rests in their hands as war rages in a chaotic universe. Gamers will find that only the BradyGames Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Official Strategy Guide can help them control the chaos, and save the future of Azeroth.

BradyGames' Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Official Strategy Guide provides extensive information to give gamers the courage and knowledge to prevail in the game. The detailed mission strategy and tactical maps will guide players through all four campaigns, including every optional quest. In addition, the guide features complete coverage of the races, including tech-trees, strategies, and statistics for managing the units and structures. Tactics for developing Heroes, the driving force of each race, are also included. Players will also discover critical information on hundreds of spells, upgrades, and items, in an essential four-color poster. Plus, tips are provided from Blizzard for the multiplayer maps.

"We packed this guide with everything a player could possibly want, and then pushed the content even further with detailed statistics that you just don't find in many strategy guides" said David Waybright, Publisher for BradyGames. "Our guides are constantly evolving, and the Warcraft III guide is a perfect example of how BradyGames sets the standard for quality and content."

Recognizing the incredible artistic features of this game and the dedicated Warcraft fan base, BradyGames is also publishing The Art of Warcraft. This unique hardcover book will feature rare and never-before-seen artwork from the Warcraft universe. Readers will enjoy the expansive coverage, including illustrations and story elements from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, plus an exclusive look at the upcoming World of Warcraft game. In addition, behind-the-scenes commentary from the Blizzard(r) development team and anecdotal captions about the story and events in the series are also provided.

"BradyGames has proven that they are committed to quality, said Paul W. Sams, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Blizzard Entertainment. "Their knowledge of Blizzard games is apparent in every product they publish. We're happy to be working with them again on these two exciting projects."
