Warcraft III versions supported: 1.26 and later, including Reforged. Last updated: 15-July 2020.
This is an Altered Melee map based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle universe (not to confuse with Warhammer40K universe). Several Altered Melee maps features 14 unique, fully-developed playable races: Skaven, Lizardmen, High Elves, Empire, Dwarfs, Warriors of Chaos, Orcs&Goblins, Dark Elves, Beastmen, Wood Elves, Vampire Counts, Ogre Kingodms, Daemons of Chaos and Tomb Kings. All 4 original Warcraft III races are intact and are also playable. If you are not familiar with WH universe - don't worry, just think of this map as another Fantasy, I'm sure you'll enjoy it nonetheless.
The custom races are analogous to Warcraft III original fractions: each race (normally) contains 4 unit-producing structures, 3-level townhall, item shop, 4 heroes, 10+ combat units, including spellcasters and siege units... all that good stuff! Type a command in chat to select a race.
It was of course challenging to implement Warhammer armies into Warcraft races, but overall I think I did well balancing the WH universe armies and War3 strategy mechanic.The main feature of this altered melee is the specialisation system. I must admit I feel quite proud about coming up with the idea and implementing it.
Each race has 4 specialisations; the player can choose only one. For players who don't want to use the slight advantage granted by specialisations, they can be disabled (the instructions for that are given ingame). Specialisations unlock new abilities and improve already existing ones, allow the training of new special units and upgrade the ordinary ones. All this is done through instant but pricey upgrades at townhalls: there are a total of 7 upgrades. The last thing I want to note here is that even without specialisations the races are still fun and interesting (and probably more balanced, lol), but I of course suggest you try them out as they allow great difference in playstyles within a single fraction, making the gameplay much more exciting.Now that I've talked about the good stuff, I feel it's time to mention a couple of minor downsides. Firstly, unfortunately, I've made no AI for the custom races yet (I plan to in the future, but not in the near future), so if you play alone vs PC, your opponents can only be original War3 races.
WH_EternalStrife.w3n is a set of 5 custom chapters. They were made in 2012-15 and are a bit less glamorous that the 'ordinary' maps, but provide cinematic, story, atmosphere and such like. Moreover, feel free to explore the EternalStrife.docx for more immersion and additional info about the campaign!
Thanks and have fun!
Humble has just unveiled their Vermintide franchise bundle, including both games in the series and a bunch of DLCs. Vermintide may not be a very moddable franchise, but Warhammer Fantasy has been modded into all sorts of games, so here's our picks for five games that got the total conversion treatment into the medieval madness of Warhammer Fantasy!
There are too many Orcs in the Badlands again, and little space for them. A new WAAAAAAGH! lead by the Big Boss begins. Fenix King sends his expedition to the Old World to help the Empire and Kislev, because if the North unites, they won't have a chance to survive - and the Empire and Kislev? They just have to save the world one more time, and stand once again for the South.
Warhammer: Geheimnisnacht lets you play as nearly every faction in the Warhammer Fantasy world. featuring a massive map that extends from chilly Naggaroth and sweltering Lustria in the west to the impenetrable Mountains of Mourn in the east; From the deadly Chaos Wastes of the north to the blistering deserts of Araby and Nehekhara to the south. Will you fight the forces of chaos, or will you succumb to their cloying temptation?
Warhammer is a total conversion of Civilization IV Beyond the Sword based on the dark and dangerous world of - well you guessed it -Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Different to Civfanatic's primiere Fantasy - Mod "Fall From Heaven 2", it's focus is clearly on warmongering and epic battles, thereby utilizing premade maps for which the different factions will be balanced to play upon.
Several Altered Melee maps (and a new campaign) feature 14 unique, fully-developed playable races: Skaven, Lizardmen, High Elves, Empire, Dwarfs, Warriors of Chaos, Orcs&Goblins, Dark Elves, Beastmen, Wood Elves, Vampire Counts, Ogre Kingodms, Daemons of Chaos and Tomb Kings. All 4 original Warcraft III races are intact and are also playable. The custom races are analogous to Warcraft III original fractions: each race (normally) contains 4 unit-producing structures, 3-level townhall, item shop, 4 heroes, 10+ combat units, including spellcasters and siege units... all that good stuff!
The Old World will have the player meeting and fighting (Or WAAAAGHING!!) alongside legendary characters such as Karl Franz and Grimgor Ironhide, as well as exploring well known locations such as Karaz-A-Karak and Castle Drakenhof. The overall end goal is to recreate the entirety of the Old World within Bannerlord, ensuring all factions and locations are lore accurate and immersive while maintaining the sandbox elements that make Mount and Blade so enjoyable.
Vermintide is a co-op survival game in the Warhammer Fantasy continuity, where you play as an agent of the Empire in largely suicidal missions against hordes of untamed Skaven and Nurgle worshippers. Both games have quite a bit in common at a raw gameplay level with titles like Left 4 Dead, relying on teamwork and careful resource consumption to see the mission through. The sandbox is quite a bit larger, though, with customizable loadouts, subclasses, and more. Darktide - a Warhammer 40,000 game of a similar nature - is coming soon, so Humble Bundle has made it easy to get caught up with the Vermintide bundle.
Vermintide and its sequel will soon be joined by Darktide,
taking players into the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium
The bundle is available until October 22nd for £16.05 GBP/$18.00 USD, and comes with basically everything released for Vermintide and its sequel over the years. Darktide's taking a lot of the focus now for fans of co-op survival, but it'll always be fun to jump in and kill some ratmen with a handful of friends.
