Game Description

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness is a real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. The PC and Macintosh versions were published in North America by Blizzard Entertainment in 1995 and in Europe by Ubisoft in 1996. Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness is the official sequel of the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. Like its prequel, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness takes place in the medieval-fantasy world of Warcraft in which, following the events of the first game, the human kingdom of Azeroth has been invaded by the Orcs. Survivors led by Anduin Lothar fled by sea to the Kingdom of Lordaeron. The Humans then try to rally the different races populating the region such as the High Elves and the Dwarves in order to form a coalition capable of repelling the horde. Meanwhile the Orcs, although divided by many internal feuds, decide to follow a powerful new warlord Orgrim Doomhammer in pursuit of the Humans. They must now go beyond the seas and conquer the Kingdom of Lordaeron, where the Humans and their allies have been preparing for the invasion.
