Welcome Humans! Welcome Orcs!

Named Game of the Year and Multiplayer Game of the Year by PC Gamer, Warcraft II®: Tides of Darkness takes the continuing saga of Azeroth to the next level as the battle rages over land, sea and air

Dragons, Ogres, Battleships, Elven Archers, Zeppelins, Juggernauts and Death Knightsenable both Humans and Orcs to use combined arms tactics in an effort to become the true ruler of Azeroth.

The Fog of War increases strategy by requiring players to utilize line-of-sight and scouting tactics. SVGA graphics, maps (up to four times as large as in the first Warcraft), and the ability to create your own unique battlefields combine to allow Warcraft II to raise the stakes of real-time strategy gaming to new heights.
