    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!
