Blizzard Entertainment has released the HD remaster of seminal real-time strategy game Warcraft 3, Warcraft 3: Reforged. It’s available now through the official Blizzard shop (and playable on Battle.net) on PC for $29.99.

“Warcraft III is one of our proudest achievements as a company, and we’re honored that so many players around the world still hold it up as a paragon of the RTS genre,” said J. Allen Brack, president, Blizzard Entertainment. “With Warcraft III: Reforgedour biggest goal was to modernize the game while retaining everything that players have loved about it, and we hope everyone agrees that we’ve done it justice.”

The remaster includes both the original 2002 Reign of Chaos and the 2o03 expansion, The Frozen Throne. The single-player story spans seven campaigns with over 60 missions and four factions, including Orcs, Humans, Night Elves, and the Undead. Every unit, building, and environment has been given a graphical upgrade, as well as remastered audio and improved voice-overs.

The World Editor, which famously gave rise to the entire MOBA genre with the original Defense of the Ancients mod, has also been given a robust upgrade with added tools, and more enhancements planned in the future. Warcraft 3: Reforged is also fully integrated with Battle.net’s multiplayer suite, including voice chat and auto-patching. And in case anyone is still playing the nearly two-decades old original, you’ll be able to play with them online using Reforged.

In addition to the Standard Edition, Warcraft 3: Reforged also has a Spoils of War Edition for $39.99. This special edition features new skins for heroes like Arthas and Jaina, as well as several digital bonuses for other Blizzard games, such as a card back for Hearthstone and a pet for Diablo 3.

Bridge Constructor Ultimate Edition Assembling on Switch

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

Headup Games and ClockStone Software have announced Bridge Constructor is coming to Nintendo Switch this Friday, Jan. 31, for $14.99. Bridge Constructor Ultimate Edition will include two DLC add-ons and touchscreen support.

Bridge Constructor is a physics-based puzzle game that does exactly what it says on the box – create bridges for cars and trucks to safely make it from one side of the screen to the other. Bridge Constructor uses real-world physics like weight and tension and objects like concrete pillars and steel cables, all while staying under budget in each level.

The touchscreen controls allow you to drag and build objects for your bridges directly on the Switch in handheld mode.

The base game features 40 levels ranging from very easy to very hard, spread over five different areas, as well as a free build mode. The Slopemania DLC adds another 24 levels with a challenging sloping theme, while the Trains DLC adds three new islands and 18 new levels as you build large bridges to support the heavy trains.

Bridge Constructor’s most recent release, Bridge Constructor Portal, released in 2017 on mobile and PC, and 2018 for consoles. It combined the bridge-building mechanics with the setting of Valve’s beloved Portal series, as you built test chambers and avoided deadly hazards for Aperture Science.

Bridge Constructor Ultimate Edition is currently available for pre-order on the Nintendo eShop with a 20% discount ($11.99). It’s rated E for Everyone.
