Warcraft universe

Group Description

Games that belong in the Warcraft universe designed by Blizzard. This series originally was a real-time fantasy strategy game detailing a brutal war between the Human Alliance and Orcish Horde in Eastern Kingdoms of the planet Azeroth.

The universe later expanded to introduce other continents in Azeroth (even more so through World of Warcraft), such as Kalimdor in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Northend in Warcraft III: Frozen Throne, as well as other planets such as Draenor, the original home of Orcs and Ogres, featured in Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal.

An RPG-like version was first introduced through an official scenario in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, where the player may control only one hero, this eventually led to a more serious RPG project: World of Warcraft.

As the series progressed, new creatures, civilizations and magical manipulation appeared. New races such as the Undead Scourge, the Night Elves, Tauren, the Burning Legion, Nagas, etc., beings to play a more prominent role in the overall plot (although not all of them are selectable during game play or either are incorporated within the selectable races the RTS version of Warcraft).

There was also an adventure game in development, Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans, but it was cancelled in 1998. You can read more about it here.
