While Warcraft III: Reforged had a rocky launch, Blizzard has slowly redeemed itself by adding new features to the troubled IP. With the recently released Update v1.35.0, you can now download your favorite Custom Campaigns or better yet create your own.

What Are They?

Custom Campaigns in Warcraft III: Reforged are essentially a bunch of maps bundled together with a cohesive story. These campaigns are created by the lively Warcraft community and there’s plenty to choose from.

You might want to start with the Legends of Arkain custom campaign if you want to try something that has been in development for quite some time now.

Aside from downloading custom campaigns, you can actually create your own. The process is lengthy but if you already have a story to tell and all you need is a platform, perhaps this is the time that you develop your own. Don’t forget to share it with the community once you’re done!

Custom Campaigns Patch Notes

  • Some Custom Campaigns can be played using either Reforged or Classic art.
  • Reworked frontend menu. Campaigns are now located under the “Single Player” menu.
  • Custom campaigns now track the difficulty a mission was completed on.
  • “Load saved game” menu can now reload custom campaign save files.
  • Added informational prompt to show users where to install campaign files to.
  • Added “Is Cinematic” option to the campaign editor to change campaign buttons to use the camera thumbnail instead of difficulty progression.
  • Added campaign thumbnail preview support to Reforged.
  • Added ambient sound support to Reforged.
  • Added WebM support for campaign backgrounds. For legacy custom campaigns that previously used 3D backgrounds, a WebM can be used to replace that background in the WebUI.
  • Custom campaign list menu now auto-refreshes upon resuming game window focus.
  • Added support for custom movies in Warcraft III/Movies. This is file format dependent, a VP9 encoded AVI file, with an MP3 for audio in Warcraft III/Movies/Audio.
  • Added Friends presence support for Custom Campaigns.
  • Updated default campaign backgrounds to reforged style.
  • Added user presence for Custom Campaigns
  • Added rich/color formatted text support to custom campaign menus.

Ranked Play

In addition to custom campaigns, the new season of Ranked play has begun. Blizzard has initially planned for this season to last until the end of the year, but the company is amenable to changes depending on community feedback.

You will have to go through some placement matches first. Furthermore, the leaderboard has received some optimizations to help make it feel more responsive. It will update itself correctly this time as well.

Warcraft III: Reforged Update v1.35.0 is available on PC.
