The Frozen Throne

Warcraft The Fozen Throne is similar to Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, the single-player campaign of the Frozen Throne that follows each of the main races in sequence.  The Frozen Throne is played on maps of various sizes with terrain features such as mountains, rivers, bodies of water or cliffs.  During a game, players must establish settlements to gain resources, defend against other players, and train units to explore the map and attack enemies.

In this game, hoerbrt, the Night Elves the Human (or Blood Elves, following the struggles of the last High Elves in Lordaeron after it was destroyed by the Scourge and the Burning Legion), and the Undead (following Arthas’ return from Kalimdor to Lordaeron, and his subsequent journey to find the Lich King of the Scourge).  In The Frozen Throne there is also no Orc campaign, however, there is Diablo-style RPG campaign separate from the others that chronicles the early days of the Orc Horde’s establishment in Kalimdor.

Also, in previous Warcraft games there were only races: Orcs and Humans, which had more similarities than differences. Barring cosmetic changes, most Orc units were identical to their Human counterparts. In Warcraft III the Night Elves and the Undead are added as playable races.

The Frozen Throne offers 5 campaigns which are divided into chapters where the player has to complete a mission to carry onto the next chapter.  As you move through the chapters, the story develops and the plot moves forward.

The Frozen Throne takes place in the fictional world of Azeroth. Several years before the events of the games, a demon army known as the Burning Legion intent on Azeroth’s destruction corrupted a race called the Orcs, and sent them through a portal to attack Azeroth. After many years of fighting, the Orcs were defeated by a coalition of humans, dwarves and elves known as the Alliance; the surviving combatants were herded into internment camps, where they seemed to lose their lust for battle. With no common enemy, a period of peace followed, but the Alliance began to fracture.

The game begins with the Orc leader Thrall waking from a nightmare which warns him of the Burning Legion.  Meanwhile the Paladin and Prince of Lordaeron Arthas defend the village of Strahnbrad from the demon-controlled Orcs by enchanting and slaying Serinox the black drake.  He then joins Archmage Jania Proudmoore to help investigate a rapidly spreading plague that turns victims into the undead.

More characters are introduced and more battles must be fought in order fight the Burning Legion and stop the spread of the plague.
