Warcraft III Gets an Update and Tournament Announced

Even though Warcraft III is well over 10 years old it has just received a major update to bring it more up to date. On top of that Blizzard has announced the first ever Warcraft III Invitational Tournament, which we will get to in just a little bit. The Warcraft III patch 1.29 adds widescreen support, increases the game lobby allowing for 24 players in a single game, and a load of balance changes to heroes in the game. The hero updates are quite extensive, with updates to no fewer than 17 heroes across the game. You can check out a full list of those changes here.


There were also updates to the map editor, which now gives you a maximum map size of 480 x 480, and the number of objects you can put in those maps has been increased to 30,000.

So about the first ever Warcraft III Invitational Tournament, it will take place next week on February 27-28 on Twitch and will be hosted by Neo and Remo.

With this new update and the tournament it really does not look like Blizzard will be doing a remaster of the game, which many people were hoping for.
