Check Out the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor ‘Age of Iron’ Trailer

on November 12, 2014 7:49 PM

Blizzard Entertainment is launching their fifth expansion for World of Warcraft tomorrow in Warlords of Draenor, celebrating ten years of the MMO phenomenon’s existence. To help get you hyped up for your shiny new level 90 characters and the new graphical overhaul, they have released a new trailer to get your body ready.

The ‘Age of Iron’ trailer departs from Blizzard’s normally excellent to downright outstanding CGI videos (I’m looking at you, Overwatch) to deliver what appears to be almost entirely in-game footage. It’s a nice little touch considering how much work has gone into updating the character models and visuals of the game that was launched in a completely different era of the video game industry. The focus on going through the Dark Portal and the gravitas of the situation with the Iron Horde is set up nicely, reminding me of the conflict between humans and orcs that hasn’t really been greatly focused on since the days of the Warcraft RTS series.

You can watch the full two minute trailer below. Are you excited for Warlords of Draenor or maybe you re-subscribed for the new expansion? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor releases on PC on November 13th.

He probably finds your lack of faith disturbing.
