World of Warcraft may be given for free to Warcraft moviegoers

Just be sure you keep your Warcrack addiction in check.


The Warcraft movie is scheduled to release in Summer 2016, and if you’re planning on watching the film, you might want to hold onto your ticket stub as Blizzard might be planning an inevitable tie-in between World of Warcraft and its major motion picture counterpart.

A player survey is being sent out by Blizzard for consideration for a product called The World of Warcraft “Ultimate Movie Edition.” The special edition contains digital copies of World of Warcraft itself and all previously-released expansions, one month of free game time, and an exclusive in-game item. The Ultimate Movie Edition will be free with the purchase of a ticket to see the Warcraft film in theaters.

The special edition of World of Warcraft won’t include a copy of its upcoming Legion expansion, although we’re sure that’s more than just a coincidence considering it’s expected to launch around the time the film premieres.

Hopefully Blizzard follows through with this offer as we think it’d be a great idea to offer a free copy of the game and expansions for moviegoers. We can’t think of a better way to pull in more players after they’ve just finished watching the Warcraft movie.
