Warcraft Movie trailer
If you were lucky enough to attend Comic-Con recently, Blizzard released a very short video blip about the Warcraft movie. Judging by news reports, it wasn't really a trailer as opposed to a "mood piece", but the excitement is building. No one's been permitted to show the clip online, but here's a short description:
From what little information has been released it's speculated that the movie will be a combination of live action with some hefty CG thrown in.
Forbes, among others, is in a constant state of wondering if Warcraft will move to the free-to-play option, considering their recent admission that they're working on an in-game store for players:
Items have already reported relating to xp buffs and an alternate means to acquire Lesser Charm of Good Fortune. It will be released to the Asian market first, but there's no reason or indication to believe it won't open up to other markets.
But does this mean Blizzard is moving to a free-to-play scheme soon? Not likely. Sure, subscriber numbers are down, but the game still supports a massive population. I suppose the cynic may point out that the company is looking for a back up once the inevitable happens, and maybe that's true, but it won't be for many years. And as for the pay-to-win argument? Blizzard already quashed those rumors a while back when the first in-game pet showed up at the store.
And now for the lighter side of things! Metzen has been thinking about doing this for a long time, and so has paired with artist Wei Wang to create a Warcraft children's book. Yes, it looks as if every character within will be a baby. Baby Varian! Baby Thrall!
