Those of you wishing to experience Warcraft 3 as if it were a new title are in luck, as the game is being remastered and will be coming out in 2019 as Warcraft III: Reforged.
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos was one of the best strategy games of its era and became really important to the history of gaming going forward, as it went on to inspire the creation of World of Warcraft and inadvertently lead to the creation of the Moba genre.
There are a lot of fans who are interested in seeing how the events leading up to World of Warcraft played out, but Warcraft III came out in 2002, which means that you would need some mods in order to get it looking and running comfortably on most modern machines.

Warcraft III: Reforged is a ground-up remaster of the original game. All of the character models have been upgraded and look incredible and the game includes all new animations. The maps have also been remade and look sharper than ever.
Those of you who like to see their games in eye-searing quality can also enjoy Warcraft III: Reforged in 4k resolution, which has an updated UI to accommodate for the higher resolutions of modern screens.
Warcraft III: Reforged includes all of the content from Reign of Chaos and its expansion, The Frozen Throne, which means that there is a ton of single-player content in the game.

The online modes of Warcraft III: Reforged will also benefit from the modern matchmaking technology offered by Battle.net, which has been designed to make playing with friends & strangers even easier than ever.
One move that is likely to rankle some fans is that there have been alterations made to the units in order to make the game more balanced. This may annoy some fans who want an experience that is as close to the original as possible.
Those who purchase the Spoils of War edition of the game will also unlock content in other Blizzard games, including a Meat Wagon in World of Warcraft, the Third War card back in Hearthstone, and four Warcraft heroes in Heroes of the Storm.
Warcraft III: Reforged is available for pre-purchase now and will be released in 2019.
