The remake of Warcraft 3 disappointed many players at release. Now another missed feature returns

Warcraft 3 is considered one of the best strategy games of all time – also in our GlobalESportNews ranking. A worthy candidate, then, for a remake. But Blizzard”s remake, Warcraft 3: Reforged, fell far short of players” expectations. In our test, it was additionally punished with one of the highest downgrades in GlobalESportNews history, due to technical problems that have since been at least partially ironed out:

After all, the developers have since been making efforts to improve the remake and add missing content. The latest patch sees the return of a particularly popular feature, coming on 19 January, according to the game”s official Twitter account:

This brings update 1.35

The most important innovation of the patch is the new introduction of self-created story campaigns. These were already part of the original, but were previously missing from the remake. They give you the opportunity to create your own stories or to try out the campaigns of other players. The announcement in December was already very well received by fans!

Further changes include the pool of 1v1, 2v2, 4v4 and FFA maps. This will be expanded with additional maps and will also take on updates created by the community. Last but not least, there are numerous bug fixes and balance changes. You can read about how these look in the latest and final test version in the patch notes on page 2.

Are you still excited about the integration of Custom Campaigns or do you think the Warcraft ship has sailed and sunk a long time ago? Let us know what you think in the comments!
