Modders are remaking Warcraft 2 in Warcraft 3: Reforged

Ready to work!

Modders are remaking Blizzard's 1995 real-time strategy classic Warcraft 2 in Warcraft 3: Reforged - and it looks great!

Chronicles of the Second War is a Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness remake that already has the first four campaign missions ready to play.

There are new unit models, campaign implementation and extended lore. According to a post on the Icy Veins forum, the story will draw from established lore in the original games, MMO World of Warcraft and the Warcraft Chronicle history book in a bid to iron out any discrepancies. The campaign will be linear, unlike the original's, which lets you choose a side to determine the outcome. The modders are making unique units for every subfaction, too. Gameplay wise, expect sidequests, creeps and other mechanics from Warcraft 3, as well dual tech-trees for buildings.

Based on the trailer below, this fan effort is impressive indeed, with some quality new unit models to replace the originals. It's early days of course, but this may be the closest we'll get to a Warcraft 2 remake - after the disaster that was Warcraft 3: Reforged.
