I’m sure literally no fan saw this one coming…
Blizzard arguably makes the best CG visuals in the industry. While their actual dialog and storytelling leaves a lot to be desired, their CG visuals are so hype inducing and fantastic, they’ve become iconic over the years (we all remember, I am sure, “Hell, it’s about time”).
Today, during Blizzcon, the company showed off a brand new cinematic for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, the newest expansion for the long running MMORPG that only came out recently, which develops the story of the saga further.
Among other things, it includes what I am sure Blizzard hopes is a shock for a lot of people, but which I think is a plot twist a lot of fans totally called. I won’t get into exactly what it is, but it deals with someone being not quite as good and/or evil as you may have thought they were.
You can check out the cinematic for yourself below.
