WarCraft 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the hit game that launched on September 10, 2016, is the latest game in a line of ambitious video game titles from Blizzard Entertainment.
As its name implies, the game takes place on the fictional world of Azeroth, which is in the midst of an apocalyptic conflict between two opposing factions known as the Horde and the Alliance.
The game’s main goal is to defeat both the Horde’s titular leader, Garrosh Hellscream, and the allied Alliance, which includes the mysterious Lich King, the villain of the game.
Warcraft 2, which launched on March 16, 2017, is a free-to-play title that will come to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Its story follows Garrosk, the titular warlord, and his demonic allies, who are trying to overthrow the Horde as they seek to gain control of the world.
WarCraft 2 is set in a world that has been ravaged by the Scourge, a vicious race of undead that roams the world and has ravaged many of its nations.
The titular Horde, led by Garrok, seeks to restore peace to the world through the restoration of the Worldstone, an artifact that once belonged to the titans of Azern, who also controlled the world before the Scourge arrived.
The Alliance, led of the titan-less Horde, seeks a peaceful resolution to the conflict through diplomacy.
Players will have the option to start a new character or continue playing the original game.
Each character has unique abilities, including magic, ranged combat, and a unique set of skills that can be learned from the beginning of the campaign.
Players can also customize their characters with armor, weapons, and pets to suit their playstyle.
Players can start a campaign in either the Horde or the Alliance mode.
Players who choose to play in the Horde mode are more likely to fight against the Horde, which has a higher cap of players on the server, and will likely be more difficult to kill.
In the Alliance style, the Horde has a lower cap, and players can be more easily killed, but are still likely to face the same challenges in battle.
War of the Ancients is the first game to feature an online mode, and it also introduced new mechanics that allow players to control their character’s skills, build defenses, and even unlock powerful spells.
Players also can buy loot packs to level up their characters and pets, which can be used to level out the game’s leveling system.
The system is designed to make leveling up easier and more rewarding for players who want to see more of their characters level up faster, though the packs are not required to progress.
The first patch of the expansion, patch 2.0.4, was released on March 17, 2017.
Players who buy a $50 DLC pack will receive an epic item called the Soul of Azshara, which was previously available only in the online mode.
The item is a rare and unique artifact that can only be found in the game world.
Players will need to collect and destroy the Soul in order to unlock it.
