A remake of one of Blizzard's most beloved games of all time, WarCraft 3: Reforged was announced over the weekend. Warcraft III: Reforged is the classic real-time strategy game given a spit and polish with reworked visuals, enhanced audio, remastered cut-scenes, and stronger map-making and mod support. For those after an RTS fix, Warcraft 3: Reforged could be just the thing. Looking at the newly released system specs for Warcraft III, it should also run on just about anything.
Warcraft III: Reforged Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 32-bit
- CPU: Intel Pentium D 805 2.67 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 1.9 GHz
- RAM: 2 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 256 MB Video Memory
- GPU: GeForce 6800 GT or Radeon HD 3650
- DX: DirectX 9
- HDD: 3 GB Available Hard Drive Space
There is a fairly large performance disparity between the minimum Intel and AMD processors for Warcraft 3: Reforged, but this is practically a non-issue based upon how low-end both the Pentium D 805 and the Athlon 64 X2 3600+ are. Any and every modern CPU can blitz past the performance of these two processors so this only becomes a problem if you're trying to run the Warcraft 3 remaster on very old hardware.
It's a similar tale for the rest of the Warcraft 3 Reforged minimum system requirements, in truth. These system specs are as low-end as it gets and should ensure Warcraft 3 HD should run excellently on a wide range of PC gaming systems.
Blizzard has said these minimum specs for Warcraft III: Reforged are subject to change, although we don't envision any major changes between now and the game's launch in 2019.

STORM, EARTH AND FIRE HEED MY CALL!
I am the son of the wind and rain
Thunder beckons, and I heed the call
If I die upon this day
In battle I will fall
Hmmmm I'm wondering if they're using the Starcraft 2 engine for this..... if they are, it's kindof odd because the CPU requirements have been lowered and the GPU requirements have been raised.
From what most people have stated, they have just modified the WC3 engine, which is currently the most likely
Also, assuming it's the SC2 engine, it's normal to have lower CPU requirements, considering the unit count in a Starcraft 2 game and those in a Warcraft 3 game. And the graphics are more modern so yeah.
inb4 someone with a 2018 rig asks if they can run it...
Can I run it?
You can @1024x768 30FPS, but if you upgrade to 32gb of RAM you'll be @60PFS:D :D :D
If I still had it i could play it with the first PC I build myself, had the Pentium D 805. :D
Wow, directx9, havent seen this in a long time !
I thought it was dirextX 8.1?
