Blizzard Entertainment has released a Mac demo of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.

The Mac version follows the release of a PC demo earlier this week.

The full game, which was released simultaneously for both Mac and Windows, is the third instalment in the company's strategy-game series. It puts players in the role of one of four different races – Orcs, Elves, Humans and the sinister Undead – players must also manage an assortment of Hero characters that can affect the outcome of the game. The title offers both a single-player campaign, multiplayer gaming online and ships with a Map Editor.

The demo offers a two-mission tutorial to furnish gamers with a taste of the adventure title. It also includes three all-new missions (not available in the retail product), that explores an untold chapter in the Orcish campaign. Multiplayer support is also available in the demo.

It requires a 400MHz G3 processor, 120MB space, 128MB of RAM and Mac OS 9.x or OS X 10.1.3.
