Family Guy is getting the World of Warcraft treatment with an Alliance-and-Horde-based episode this Sunday at 9 pm EST according to the show's Twitter.

While it’s player base may have dropped since the days of the Wrath of the Lich King Expansion, World of Warcraft has been eternalized into popular culture and its mark is, evidently, not fading away anytime soon. This week’s Family Guy episode, “Veteran Guy,” will delve into the world… of Warcraft.

Though the blurb on IMDB reads “Peter and the guys get caught pretending to be military veterans and are sentenced to join the Coast Guard,” the Family Guy Twitter account tweeted about the crossover and the Sunday airdate.

Yes, the episode is airing on April 1, but the marketing behind the episode isn’t a joke. The material shows Peter and Stewie imagined as warriors of the Horde and Alliance respectively, with the background depicting a massive battle. This is likely in reference to the game’s upcoming expansion: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth.  

The episode will air this Sunday on Fox at 9 pm EST. You can check out what else has been going on with World of Warcraft, including the most recent PvP brawls and Trial of Style here.
