Blizzard has finally released the official assets it used to make Warcraft 3 to the modders of StarCraft 2′s Arcade mode.
The Arcade mode is basically a place for all modders to share their creations with the StarCraft community. If you own a copy of the game, then you can download all kind of mods or even start making them yourself in the game’s editor.
It’s a known thing that for years, fans have been waiting to remake Warcraft 3 in the StarCraft 2 engine. And now they finally can, thanks to Blizzard, who released all Warcraft 3 assets to all players in the PTR for now, with the public to receive it later. This includes new and original models for heroes, structures, spell effects, sounds, music and custom UI for each faction.
“This brings over three thousand new materials for the amazing Arcade development community to work with,” said Blizzard. “We are so excited to see what our community is going to make that we wanted to give you a head start. Once these assets become available to the public, we are going to spotlight the best content in what we are calling, “Memories of War.” The PTR is your chance to start playing with your new tools and to start making amazing experiences.”
