Single-Player Campaign For WarCraft3: The Frozen Throne

At the 2003 E3 Expo, Blizzard Entertainment® gave show attendees an exclusive look at one of Warcraft® III: The Frozen Throne™'s highly anticipated single-player campaigns. With the multiplayer beta test nearing completion, the campaigns are among the last of many new features that are being finalized in preparation for the expansion set's launch this summer.

In The Frozen Throne, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, but a new threat has arisen throughout the land. The campaign follows the traitorous Death Knight Arthas and the renegade Night Elf Demon Hunter Illidan as they battle their way toward the mysterious Icecrown glacier in Northrend. Imprisoned within this icy tomb is the soul of Ner'zhul, the evil Lich King responsible for unleashing the Undead Scourge upon the world of Azeroth. As the saga unfolds, the villains' intentions are revealed, and the fate of the world will once again find itself in the hands of the resilient Human Alliance and the stalwart Night Elf Sentinels.

"Our plan for the expansion set is to increase the scope and depth of the Warcraft universe in many ways," stated Mike Morhaime, Blizzard Entertainment president and co-founder. "In addition to expanding the rich story line, The Frozen Throne will also increase the strategic gameplay possibilities available to players, with a wide array of new Heroes and units specifically designed to enhance each race."
