Blizzard Entertainment released a new Warcraft III: Reforged beta patch that introduces the toogle between Classic Mode and Reforged Mode assets. As a reminder, BlizzCon Virtual Ticket owners have access to Warcraft III Beta.

Pete Stilwell: Howdy Friends,

We’re excited to debut play between classic and Reforged assets. We would greatly appreciate that everyone tries to play games with both options.


  • Stability improvements for custom games
  • Map loading time decreased significantly
  • Classic mode now active to play with original assets
    • Can be toggled in Options from the main menu
    • Menus do not change based on SD/HD
    • Cannot be changed in game (we don’t load both sets of assets to save memory usage)



  • Human buildings can be selected at all times again
