Following the first-ever digital release of Diablo on GOG earlier this month, Blizzard Entertainment has released both original Warcraft games on the digital platform.
Both the original WarCraft and WarCraft II, as well as their Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal expansions, are now available on GOG. While the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans is available for $5.99, WarCraft 2 is $9.99. You can save a dollar by picking them both up in a $14.99 bundle.
GOG notes the version available on their site “has been fully optimized to run out-of-the-box on today’s operating systems.”
They added, “Players who purchase Warcraft II through GOG.COM will get two versions: one that’s been updated with support for high-resolution displays and multiplayer via LAN connections; and a period-appropriate classic version that includes the original SVGA graphics, and matchmaking through the classic version of the Battle.net online-gaming service.”
The latest release in the classic Warcraft series is an honest-to-goodness high-definition remaster for Warcraft 3, which is set for a release sometime this year.
