Warcraft is a franchise of video games, novels and other media originally created by Blizzard Entertainment for the game Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. The series is made up of four core games:
  • Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
  • Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
  • Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos
  • World of Warcraft

The first three of these core games are in the real-time strategy genre, where opposing players command virtual armies in battle against each other or a computer-controlled enemy. The latter, and best selling title of the franchise, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game(MMORPG).

Expansion sets were also released for multiple games in the series, each adding more content to each game as an effort to expand the product life span of each. Warcraft II and Warcraft III had one expansion each, namely Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.

World of Warcraft has had multiple expansions, namely World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and the upcoming orld of Warcraft: Cataclysm

About Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is a real-time strategy computer game developed for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Mac OS X by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the official expansion pack to Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, requiring Reign of Chaos to play. Released in stores worldwide in multiple languages beginning on July 1, 2003, it includes new units for each race, a new neutral race, four campaigns, five neutral heroes (an additional neutral hero was added April 2004 and two more were added in August 2004), the ability to build a shop and various other improvements such as the ability to queue upgrades. Sea units were reintroduced; they had been present in Warcraft II but were absent in Reign of Chaos. Blizzard Entertainment has released patches for the game to fix bugs, add new features, and balance multiplayer.
The setting, arguably one of the most acclaimed of the Warcraft mythology, plays a prominent role in the Warcraft MMORPG as the backdrop for World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, as well as World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King.
