Blizzard Releases World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Azshara Cinematic at Gamescom 2018
Blizzard has released the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Azshara Warbringers cinematic at the Gamescom 2018 event.
The cinematic shows off the events following her betrayal by Sargeras in the War of the Ancients. We’ve included the cinematic down below:
What would you do to save a people? For the great queen Azshara, it is within the deeps that she finds what she needs most: opportunity.
Prior to the release of the new cinematic, Blizzard’s Senior Designer, Steve Burke, and Senior Narrative Designer, Steve Danuser, also had something to share about the cinematic in an interview with Forbes:
Burke: Hopefully the Warbringer cinematic will help refresh people’s memory a little bit about where our character came from. I’ve been here for a lot of releases, and it’s always, “When are we going to play with Azshara?” That time finally getting here is really exciting for me. It’s a really interesting character. I think that we’ll be able to bring people up to speed pretty well. We’re at war right now. It’s a really special time. It’s the first time in the history of World of Warcraft that we’ve been able to play in that environment, story-wise. We’ve still got a little bit to tell there, leading up to some reveals. We wanted to make sure that players were aware that she’s watching.
Danuser: There’s a reason that she is the third of our Warbringers in this series. We did really want to feature her here. Without giving anything away about the cinematic, once you see it, I think you’ll have a much deeper understanding, as Steve said, about what she is and what that history is. It’s going to be a really fun opportunity to see her storyline advance in the content patches that will be coming.
Battle for Azeroth, World of Warcraft’s seventh expansion, is available globally now for PC.
