Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (aka War3 or WC3) is a real-time strategy game released by Blizzard Entertainment in July 2002. It is the second sequel to Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, and it is the third game set in the Warcraft Universe. An expansion pack, The Frozen Throne, was released in 2003.

Warcraft III contains four playable races: Humans and Orcs, which had previously appeared in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, and the Night Elves and Undead, which are new to the Warcraft mythos. Warcraft III's single-player campaign is laid out similarly to that of StarCraft, being told through all four of the game's races in a progressive manner. Multiplayer mode allows for play against other people, via the internet, instead of playing against computer-controlled characters as is done in the single-player custom game mode.

In WarCraft lore, this is ofter referred to as the Third War.

A very popular aspect of WarCraft III, and also responsible for most of it's continued play today is the Modding Community. Add-on modules called 'Maps' may be created by anyone and bring new content and gameplay, especially on Battle.net.
