WC3 Joins Our Game Cabinet (August 29, 2018)

Mr. Kat
During the CIC 20th Birthday celebrations we launched our Game Cabinet feature. This allows you to try out the WC1 and WC2 rolling demos from within your browser - no installation required! By tweaking a few things, we have been able to unlock a bit of extra performance so those demos now run more smoothly. But more importantly, we have been able to add the WC3 playable demo to the collection! The demo features a trailer cinematic followed by a playable mission, although it requires a fairly beefy machine to run completely smoothly. Check it out here!

My phone bravely tried to run this, but the 5fps experience wasn't pretty. Ironically, this mid range smartphone has a core clock approximately 15 times faster than the 486 I first played WC3 on.

It's pretty freakin amazing that it runs at all. Give it a few years, and it'll emulate fine.

Having just watched through it properly on my PC, I'm struck by how spoiler heavy that trailer was!
