GOG team with Blizzard to bring Warcraft 1 & 2 available digitally

Classic real-time strategy games Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft 2 are finally available to download digitally. Blizzard Entertainment’s jewels have been bundled together on GOG.com.

It was a few weeks back that Blizzard and GOG hooked up to re-release the original Diablo, and much to the delight of Warcraft fans they’re at it again.

Warcraft: Orcs and Humans can be purchased for £4.59, whilst Warcraft II Battle.net Edition will set you back slightly more at £7.59. The bundle, which of course includes both games, can be purchased for £11.29.

“In anticipation of the upcoming 25th anniversary of Warcraft, we brought you the real-time strategy classics that started it all Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft II Battle.net Edition, including both the original Tides of Darkness and the Beyond the Dark Portal expansion. Starting today, players can once again explore these universe-defining games as they become available digitally and DRM-free for the first time ever!” 

Warcraft: Orcs & Humans released back in 1994, and what you’re getting is a game “feels that just like the original from 1994, it’s just updated to run flawlessly on modern operating systems.”

Warcraft 2 originally launched a year later in 1995. The Battle.net Edition includes the original Tides of Darkness and the Beyond the Dark Portal expansion. Two versions of this title are available:

“The classic one allows for the authentic experience and a fully functional multiplayer with Blizzard’s Battle.net online gaming service. The updated version comes with a number of fixes to provide full compatibility with modern machines as well as hi-resolution support and upscaling.”

I had a quick peek over at GOG and it seems that both of these classics have been instant hits with gamers. Both titles and the bundle have been receiving multiple 5-star ratings and excellent reviews. For a trip down memory lane, head on over to GOG and pick up these timeless classics.
