As His Majesty the Emperor’s Expedition Force sets down on the shores of a mysterious continent, dark forces are already waiting…
This Wreckage is a massive singleplayer action-adventure RPG map for Warcraft III: the Frozen Throne. Version Gamma is compatible only with version 1.24+ of Warcraft III, due to additional engine features added to the game in that version.
WARNING: there may be some issues with This Wreckage in the new patches (1.27 and above). I am aware of these issues but will not be making any fixes until Reforged is released or later, once the resurgence has settled down a bit. While I do intend to take a quick swatch to make any fix any game-breaking issues that I can, there is ultimately a risk that some things will not be fixable and This Wreckage simply won’t be playable in Reforged. It’s over ten years old and I’ve moved on since then, so please be understanding! In the mean time, This Wreckage is guaranteed to work in version 1.26, so consider installing that instead: here is an official-but-hidden link to the patch you can use on your retail copy. (Y-you do h-have a retail copy, d-don’t you?)
- F6: QUICKSAVE
- Left arrow: rotate camera <-
- Right arrow: rotate camera ->
- Up arrow: zoom in
- Down arrow: zoom out
- Escape: skip cinematic / reset camera to default
