WARCRAFT and WARCRAFT II re-released

Blizzard Entertainment and GoG have joined forces to re-release the first two games in the WarCraft fantasy franchise.

WarCraft: Orcs and Humans (1994) was the game that kicked off the whole shebang and forms the basis of the storyline of the WarCraft movie. It has been updated (via DOSBOX) to work fine on modern PCs, although it's still something of an old-skool and slightly clunky game.

WarCraft II: Tides of Darkness (1995), which also includes the expansion WarCraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal (1996), has been given a fancier update to run natively in Windows 10 with some graphics improvements.

Both games are available together in a bundle deal from GoG.

Blizzard are working on a much bigger and more fundamental remastering of WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion The Frozen Throne for release later in the year.
