Although Blizzard has yet to make any big Warcraft 3: Reforged announcements this year, those currently playing the beta have given us a first look at the remake.

Warcraft 3: Reforged is Blizzard’s full-on remake of the original classic. Unveiled almost a year ago at Blizzcon, Reforged is built on a new engine and is scheduled for release at some point this year.

We have not, however, heard anything about it pretty much since it was first announced. It appears select few are currently playing a beta build of Reforged, which is good news because it means we finally get a proper look at gameplay.

Given that there’s been no official buzz about that supposed beta, it’s likely because it’s meant to be under NDA. That did not stop YouTuber Book of Flames from uploading a few matches, though.

The YouTuber posted three videos showing the different factions. They have been up for several hours now, so hopefully everything is above board.

The one we’ve embedded below features Human vs Orc, but they also have one from the Orc perspective, and a third showing Human with Pandas against two AI opponents.

It certainly looks promising, and we’re very likely going to learn more at Blizzcon next month.
