World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor cinematic trailer unleashes Hellscream once more

Amidst much fanfare, Blizzard released the new Warlords of Draenor cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft

14

Garrosh Hellscream has returned! Blizzard unveiled the new cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft's upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion, helping set the stage for an epic new narrative.

The newest trailer sees that Hellscream has not come through the Dark Portal alone, bringing along with him a fearsome new army. The warrior's wrath is felt early and felt hard, as Gul'dan quickly feels the terror that's about to wash over all of Azeroth.

Watch the whole thing below. World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor arrives on PC on November 13.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

            What are you talking about? They've wrapped filming, it's in post-production now.

              Really?

              I honestly haven't kept track of this but it seems like less than a year since they announced that Duncan Jones was directing it, I haven't even read any details about what the script is about, hope it doesn't suck =(

                Script is about the formation of the Horde and Alliance, and focuses on the story of the main leaders of each side during the earlier Warcraft games, Anduin Lothar and Durotan. I wouldn't be too surprised if events in the film semi-tie into Warlords of Draenor, but now it seems like there's a whole alternate timeline thing in the game.

                  I see, maybe if the movie doesn't tie with the expansion at least audience and players will familiarize with some of the characters.
                  Only thing that seems weird to me is the short time taken to film and then jump into post production phase. *fingers crossed*

        The movie will most likely suck compared to these Cinematics.

          I still feel like they should have turned the in-house cinematic team loose for a two hour movie. I'd love to see the same for Starcraft as well.

      As someone who ended warcraft with Warcraft 3, should I even ask as to wtf is going on here? Is this before the Dark Portal was opened or is this post warcraft 3? I'm really confused.

        New alternate timeline starting before the portal was first opened.

          So this is back in time during the good old days? That's pretty sweet.

      That was pretty damn good, but then again Blizzard doesn't make crap trailers.

      Three months away and I'm not ready, but must play. Hope Fry's has a midnight release! nVidia was there last time.

      Yeah, I'm in. I thought Wildstar was going to pull me in but it just can't compete really.

      For some reason I thought it was super cool in WoW when I was exploring in Ashenvale and stumbled upon the place where Mannoroth was killed (the first time?) by Grom Hellscream.

      I was a sucker for all the tie-ins from the RTS games. Like Arthas's throne room, too.

      Blizz needs to just cave and give us all what we *REALLY* want. A Blizz CG movie. They gotta want to do it too. I mean, other than a longer script and more production time, what's lacking from this trailer????
