The chronicles of Azeroth include the remake of the three original Warcraft game (orcs and humans, Tides of Darkness+Beyond the Dark Portal, Reign of Chaos+Frozen Throne) and new ones based on wow lore (vanilla-Temple of Ahn'qiraj, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm + maybe future wow expansion) with campaign and multiplayer melee gameplay.

Brave soldiers of Azeroth, It's been a long time since our message-bearers managed to sneak behind the battle fronts the last time.
Even though We didn't have the proper time to update our moddb site, those who follow us on facebook may already know that
we've been busy this summer and autumn, putting out mayor contents for both of our Warcraft 1 and Warcraft 2 remake. Finally We've got
a bit of free time to make this article and share these great news with our moddb community.

Warcraft 1 Orc Base

Multiplayer AI

One of the most requested feature was the implementation of computer players. We made the first step and added computer players to both remakes.
Ai players build, train, research and send attack waves against their enemies since summer on land and air. For Warcraft 2, naval ai works on the Dark Peninsula map,
for Fierce Ocean Combat please wait for a later patch. In the future we plan to further improve our computer players.

Warcraft 1 Orc Lumber Mill comes in a future patch


New Arts

Chronicles of Azeroth recieved many new arts. Most of the Warcraft 1 structures are already live and Warcraft 2 received Berserker, Human Transport ship and Gnomish Submarine.
The next patch will include further new models including the Orc Transport Ship and Warcraft 1 Orc Lumber Mill

Human Transport and Submarine

Plains of Snow map for 8 players

New Maps

We released three new maps. Two for Warcraft 1 and one for Warcraft 2. Warcraft 2 received Plains of Snow which is a 8 player ground only map.

Future

We are working on future improvements for our mod. Our current gameplay related focus is to ensure the units don't form a "death ball" as in Starcraft 2.
Currently we released a test map on Na and Eu servers of Starcraft 2 arcade called "Coa Wc2 Collision Test" where we made our units move more distinctly.
Please participate in our testing by playing this test map and telling your opinion. Units, Researches and Buildings are done instantly and you start with high amount of gold
to make the testing easier.
Also new arts will come in the future.
For single player we've got all 24 maps of the Warcraft 1 campaign therefore we need to finish only the attack waves, score screen and menu of it.
We also get the basic layout and gameplay of 14 out of the 28 Tides of Darkness campaign map.

This mod looks awesome! I was just wondering (I hope this question hasn't been asked before) is there going to a way to read the debriefing/story lore before we play the maps in campaign? I never played Orcs and Humans and I'm very foggy on the story in Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal. Either way this mod seems above and beyond anything I could have asked for especially since Blizzard has no intentions on making a remaster of the first two Warcrafts.

Hello.

Thank you. The original briefings will be available on each maps. Also plan to make a "Chronicle" menu option, where you will be able to unlock additional lore informations from the original manuals, later games from the series etc.

Please excuse what might be seen as a stupid question. But you are planning on making a complete remake of the the three warcraft games right? If so, do you have an idea yet of when the campaigns will be available, and are any of them playable as of now? I love the warcraft universe and is extremely excited to play this! So i of course just want to know if the maps are the only things currently available, or if there are any campaigns playable yet. But anyway that's all i have to say! Keep up your extremely good work, and merry christmas (A little late).
