A small expedition arrives on a tiny island, in search of land to conquer. They’re soon caught between two warring towns; a mad Lord wanting to take over the world, and another trying to stop him…
First released in 2006, When the Freedom Slips Away is a small but action-packed singleplayer adventure for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, that contains elements of RPG, AoS, Tower Defence and more.
It is recommended that you play using Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne version 1.26 and a 4:3 aspect ratio. However, the Gold version contains bug fixes and compatibility tweaks to support play in Warcraft III: Reforged (patch 1.27 and above) (full changelog and known issues). If you need help installing an old version of WC3 for the authentic experience, please see this thread on the Hive Workshop.
Note: WC3 has a problem with long filenames, so if the map doesn’t appear in the Singleplayer Custom Game lobby, try renaming the file to “WtFSA.w3x”.
If you liked When the Freedom Slips Away, remember to try out the sequel, This Wreckage!
