Modders building Warcraft RTS in StarCraft 2

New video rekindles fond memories.

As the wait for Warcraft 4 goes on, modders have released a new video showing off an in-development Warcraft RTS built using the StarCraft 2 engine.

The mod, called StarCraft 2: Warcraft: A New Dawn, has units and buildings and environments familiar to the fantasy RTS series. The Blademaster is shown running about cutting up NPCs.

"Please note that much of this mod is incomplete," the modders said, "and when we are done, we hope that people will forget they are playing in SC2 altogether!"
