Limited access to the orc and human races is coming, as Warcraft III: Reforged begins its multiplayer beta this week. 1v1 and 2v2 matchmaking will be available for Orcs and Humans, with Undead and Night Elves coming in the weeks ahead, along with more game modes. Invitations will go out over the next few weeks, and the initial invitations will be released to in waves to those who pre-purchased the “Spoils of War” edition of the game.
