Blizzard introduces a new concept in gaming: the RPS (Role-Playing Strategy) game. A strategy game set heavily within a role-playing environment, RPS takes the individual combat and interactive environments found in role-playing games and combines them within a competitive strategic environment. Warcraft III puts players in command of smaller, potent parties of heroes and troops. They adventure and do battle in a dynamic world of living towns, wandering monsters, characters and quests, while simultaneously devising strategies to defeat their enemies.
* Four different races to command including Orcs, Humans and Demons, each possessing unique units, magical abilities and weapons of war.
* Skeletal and skinning animation process allows infinite frames of animation resulting in true fluid movement of 3D models.
* Advanced world design tools allowing players to customize every aspect of the game including tile sets, character art, quests, mission objectives, and unit types, AI, attributes, special abilities and spells.
* Expanded multiplayer options over Battle.net including a larger number of players per game and multiple game types including team play and questing.
