Warlords of Draenor – Cinematic and Release Date

While I was too excited earlier to do a post telling you guys about the Gamescom Live Stream from Blizzard Entertainment on the new World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who tuned in.



I won’t go into all the details of the 45 minute long live stream. I’m sure the usual WoW news sites will go into much further details on the stream and its contents. But for most of us we tuned in for two reasons, to watch the cinematic and to find out the release date.

I was also surprised, it may have been known before, but was news to me, that there is a new animated short series, called Lords of War. that will be filling the players in on some of the lore on the namesake Warlords of Draenor who aren’t very well-known if you didn’t play the now 20-year-old original Warcraft: Orcs Vs Humans. The first episode on Kargath Bladefist was shown on the stream, and will be available on YouTube shortly, along with a teaser for 3 more Warlords whose videos will be released over the coming weeks: Durotan, Grommash  and Kilrog.

The new Cinematic was then shown, and I won’t keep you with any sort of description, just give it a watch:


Lastly the Stream was finished of with the release date announcement, which has worried me slightly, as it doesn’t give me long to get things wrapped up with Mists of Pandaria…

Warlords of Draenor will be released the Thursday after Blizzcon, which is the 13th November 2014…

Get Hype!
