Description

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is the first official expansion to Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The game takes place not long after the events depicted in the latter. The Night Elves have retreated to their forest to heal the war-torn earth, the Orcs have finally found a home, the Humans have moved on since their homeland is now a plague-stricken infested wasteland, and the Undead, having been defeated in the battle of Mount Hyjal move on to the frozen north. A new evil has awakened and is threatening the land.

The expansion features one new hero per race along with several 'neutral' heroes that can be recruited by any race, several new units for each race as well as neutral races, new tile sets, a player-built shop that can be used to equip heroes with items, and an all new campaign.

Trivia

Orcs

The bonus orc campaign features some characters who should have been in Blizzard's cancelled adventure game Warcraft: Lord of the Clans, for instance the goblin Gazlowe and the orc Nazgrel.

References

In the last level of the Blood Elf campaign, you will encounter two blademasters called Rend and Maim. They are the two sons of Blackhand (the orc leader in the first Warcraft) and you may know them from the Warcraft II manual (in Warcraft II they were the rulers of the Black Tooth Grin clan.) However Rend and Maim's appearance (and death) in Frozen Throne has since been retconned in World of Warcraft.
