Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans
The biggest surprise about Blizzard's latest Warcraft entry is that it won't be a real-time strategy game. While the company plans to release Warcraft 3 (the next real-time strategy game in the series) sometime in 1998 or 1999, Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans delves deep into the back story behind the Warcraft saga. Gamers take on the role of Thrall, an ore raised as a human slave, with the goal of reuniting the ore clans and leading them to dominance once again. Set in seven regions of Azeroth, Warcraft Adventures involves plenty of adventure-style exploration and RPG-like character interactions.
