With scant few days even left in 2019 it’s not exactly a shock to find out Warcraft 3: Reforged has been pushed and will no longer hit its targeted Q4 2019 release window.

The good news is that Blizzard has now at least locked in a firm launch date for the Warcraft 3 remaster. Warcraft III: Reforged will be coming to PC on January 29th, 2020.

When Can I Play Warcraft III: Reforged?

Warcraft 3: Reforged launches on PC on either January 28th, 2020, or January 29th, 2020, depending on which territory you live it. It will unlock at the same time globally.

What time does Warcraft 3 Reforged Unlock on the Battle.net Launcher?

Blizzard has confirmed the Warcraft 3 remaster will unlock at 00:01pm CET on January 29th, globally. This means Warcraft III: Reforged will be playable at 3pm PST / 6pm EST / 11pm GMT on Tuesday, January 28th, or 12am CET / 10am AEDT on Wednesday, January 29th.

How much will Warcraft III: Reforged cost?

Warcraft 3: Reforged Standard Edition is available for $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.

The Warcraft III: Spoils of War Edition is available for $39.99/€39.99/£34.99 and includes special multiplayer hero skins, a World of Warcraft Meat Wagon mount and other bonuses such as the Mal'ganis pet in Diablo 3, heroes Jaina, Thrall, Anub'arak and Tyrande in Heroes of the Storm, the Third War card pack in Hearthstone, four animation sprays and five player icons in Overwatch, and special Starcraft console skins.

Warcraft III: Reforged includes both the original Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos and its The Frozen Throne expansion in one big packaged with includes seven distinct single-player campaigns and more than 60 missions.

We can already play all that though, so what we’re really after here is the complete graphical and audio overhaul, as well as the implementation of modern matchmaking services for PvP play which will be accessed through Blizzard’s own Battle.net service.

Knowing Activision, they will ruin this game with MTX, loot boxes, or some other kind of crap.


I have zero trust in them and when they revealed that Diablo 4 will be online only, it proved that they learned NOTHING from Diablo 3.


I'll take Path of Exile 1 and 2 over Diablo 3 and 4, respectively, any day.

It's already ruined because they expect you to pay 30 bucks for a graphics update

Having to pay for a graphics update alone does not ruin the game. If it was just a remaster and you already owned the original game I could understand it, but these graphics are more of a remake.


They are far better than those of the original.

But remakes are newly build from the ground up games that want to imitate the original game, this is the same engine and everything just with some new assets and sound files patched into it.

I mean, they don't. You will be able to play with people who own Reforged edition even if don't buy it. They're not really forcing you to buy it at all.

I don't see the problem with such game being online only. After all poe is the same and yes, it's F2P and its amazing, but nobody ever complained about it, being always online.
My only concern is, if blizzard would be able to match GGG in terms of the amazing(and in same time different with each league) content they keep putting out.

Clearly you misread my comment. I made it clear that I was talking about Diablo 3 being always online. Blizzard does not exist.
