Subject: The Dark Elves Are Here!!!

For all of you old die-hard Warcraft fans the announcement has been made. Blizzard has announced that the final playable faction in Warcraft III (slated for June 2001 release, which means Blizzard will get it to us by Christmas) will be DARK ELVES. A splinter group of elves that do not make their home on Azeroth will join the battle against the demon horde (or will it be with them?). The developers say that the Dark Elves will be a combination of traditional Wood Elves and Drow Elves. The base peon units will be called "ents", and unlike other races, they will actually become the Dark Elf buildings. Instead of building a unit, or building, they will grow
into that form.

Just for past info, the other playable factions/races will be:

  • The Alliance (Humans, High Elves, and Dwarfs)
  • The Orcish Hordes (Orcs, Trolls, and Taurens)
  • The Burning Legion (Demons)
  • The Scourge (Undead)
  • To find out more about the upcoming game, you should check out Gamespot's extensive previews and reviews section at this ZDNet link. Gamespots previews go into great depth about the new spell hierarchy and how Heroes will more dramatically affect the outcome of missions and campaigns.
