Warcraft: Orcs & Humans takes players back to the original battle for Azeroth, challenging players to pick a side and raise an army of human or orcs capable of bringing ruin to their enemies.
Warcraft II and its expansion take the battle to the high seas with a host of naval units, and introduces more of the races that make up the Alliance and the Horde, bolstering the human and orc forces with elves, trolls, dwarves, and more.
Warcraft is set in the mythic kingdom of Azeroth, players are given the task of maintaining a thriving economy while building a war machine with which to destroy the enemy.
By playing either the Humans or the Orcs in this saga, two separate story lines evolve with 12 scenarios per side telling the tale of the battle for Azeroth. From swords to sorcery, all the elements of classic fantasy are here to explore: rich forests, dark dungeons, and bubbling swamps await the stalwart troops amassed to fight for dominance.
The player can command many unique armies and creatures including Knights, Archers, Clerics, Warlocks, Demons, Elementals, and The Dead.
The orcs originated from the world of Draenor, where they were corrupted by the Burning Legion to form the Horde. They slaughtered the other races of their planet, but sought further conquests. Their leader, Gul’dan, joined forces with the Last Guardian, Medivh, who had been corrupted by the demon lord Sargeras, to open a portal to another world called Azeroth.
Ultimately, the Horde was victorious, and the surviving Humans fled across the sea.
