World Of Warcraft: Legion Gets Shiny Launch Trailer

Featured post

After being announced in August, Legion – the upcoming World Of Warcraft [official site] expansion – has received a launch trailer ahead of its summer release next year. It’s pretty and shiny and so CGI-infused that it could give the series’ real-life movie cinematic that dropped on Friday a run for its money.

Check it out in all its four and a bit minutes-long glory below.

Very pretty, I’m sure you’ll agree, but the downside of trailers like these is you don’t get much actual in-game footage. In fact none, in this instance. Nevertheless, highlights of what to expect on that front include: a new melee-leaning hero class named Demon Hunter; a new explorable area named the Broken Isles; The Order Hall, a hub to gather NPCs to then lead into battle; and a PvP honour system, which is a talent point-based system that sounds equivocal to Diablo 3’s paragon system, or at least along similar lines.

As you’ll no doubt have spotted above, the trailer mentions a tentative “Summer 2016” release date for the Legion expansion, however internet chatter did at one point suggest September 21. To me that’s well past summer, so if you’re big on Warcraft I’m sure you’ll want to hang your hopes on Blizzard’s official line.

Personally, I’ve never been massively into WoW, but as a huge Sopranos fan this advert will forever be my favourite.
