It goes without saying at this point that Warcraft III: Reforged failed at pretty much everything it was supposed to do, with the game’s very slow patches still working on adding back in functionality like custom campaigns that was working in the original game. Having those custom campaigns back would be a boon to a new fan project, though. Chronicles of the Second War aims to be a full recreation and remaster of Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness using Reforged as the basis.
The massive changes to gameplay and design between the games makes this a pretty massive task, but the team working on the project has already put the first four missions of the Orc campaign up for testing as demo maps. The plan, of course, is to have the entirety of both racial campaigns available, complete with customized units and graphics. Check out the trailer just below; it’s clearly a labor of love for the team working on the project.
