The game’s creators at Blizzard Entertainment are proud to announce that WarCraft Wars is finally coming to PC.

This version of the game was originally called WarCraft: Arcade Edition.

The PC version of WarCraft is being released on August 23, 2016.
As mentioned above, the game’s developers have made it free to play, and players are welcome to join in on the fun.
