Held off on buying Blizzard Entertainment’s best-selling Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion set, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne? Your patience is being rewarded: the game publisher is releasing the Warcraft Battle Chest, a collection that bundles both titles together along with a strategy guide.
Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos is 2002’s “role playing strategy game” feature characters from Blizzard’s popular Warcraft franchise. In Reign of Chaos players once again return to the war-ravaged land of Azeroth to engage in battle between Orcs, Humans, and two new races: Night Elves and The Undead. An epic struggle for survival and domination plays out both in a series of single-player campaigns and in a vast online multiplayer world.
The Frozen Throne is the 2003 add-on that continues the storyline from its predecessor. Players experience a new single-player campaign and a multitude of enhancements and improvements that make it possible to play straight through the game differently. Both Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne were shipping on hybrid CD-ROMs compatible with Macs and Windows PCs, and this new Battle Chest Edition is no exception.
What’s more, the Brady Games strategy guides for Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne are included, to help players get a firm footing and learn what to do to maximize their game-playing ability.
Battle Chests have been a popular way for Blizzard to take its past titles and combine them for players who haven’t yet bought the games, so it was just a matter of time before the company released one for Warcraft III.
The Warcraft Battle Chest retails for US$49.95.
