Just a quick note here to let you know that Warcraft III: Reforged is going to be released on Jan. 28. It's not that far away, yet it feels like it's been a while since we've heard anything about it. I don't recall hearing anything about it at this year's Blizzcon, which comes as a surprise now that we have this release date. Maybe I missed something, after all I was only playing attention to Diablo IV anyway.

You can buy a digital version of the game for $30 (which is $2 per mission) or spend an extra $10 to get some bonus stuff. See the link below for more info.

Is anyone planning to get this at launch? I'm not sure myself. I've played all of Warcraft and Warcraft II, but never Warcraft III. The remaster looks impressive though! Check out the embedded video for a look at both versions side by side.

I'd put this up there as one my favorite games so this is a day one purchase for me. Not sure about pre-ordering but i'll but it when it comes out. I wanted to replay it recently so i'm saving that for this new version.

The pre-order special extra version gives you skins in the Reforged version so I wonder if you can unlock skins or if there is some kind of DLC store for this one? If they go fairly big on multiplayer for this they could be adding a bunch more DLC to help support it post launch.

I can't decide whether or not I'd want to spend the extra $10 for skins. For me, it might not be worth it, because I don't usually play any Blizzard game. Right now my favorite is Diablo (III for me), but I've played it plenty enough and don't have much desire to play it again. So I think it wouldn't be all that worth it to pay extra for skins. As for someone who plays more Blizzard games, I think this could certainly be worth it. Skins are cool. I'm not really against buying them, as long as their inexpensive and worth it. This game is on the more affordable side of gaming now. I can understand why someone would want to pay a little more just to help support a game they love. As for getting it at launch, I might not, because I already have my gaming planned out, which may last into February, March, or later. So, I might wait. If I do wait, I'd certainly be interested in seeing what you or anyone else has to say about it.

Yeah, haven't decided on skins either. I usually don't care but i'm open to changing my mind later.
