World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Launch Trailers Are All About War and Metallica

World of Warcraft's new expansion Battle for Azeroth has brought rekindled war to the lands of Blizzard's MMORPG, and new trailers show just that.

Now that World of Warcraft‘s new expansion Battle for Azeroth is out in the wild, Blizzard released two new trailers to wet the players’ appetite before they get stuck into the story.

The first is a CGI launch trailer featuring scenes from the expansion’s cinematic, while the second is in-engine. Both focus on the siege of Lordaeron and show the Alliance and the Horde locked in battle led by Anduin Wrynn and Sylvanas Windrunner.

Incidentally, the first trailer plays on the note of Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which is quite appropriate for the expansion’s warlike nature.

You can check out both trailers below, but be warned, the second video is rather spoiler-heavy.

If you want to see more, you can check out animated shorts featuring Jaina Proudmoore and newly-promoted one-dimensional villainess Sylvanas Windrunner.

World of Warcraft and its expansion Battle for Azeroth are currently available exclusively for PC. You can purchase the expansion on Amazon.
