If you're a big Blizzard Ent fan like myself then I'm sure you were somewhere on Twitter today if not actually at Blizzcon when the World of Warcraft news was announced. Okay, first, let me jump straight into that cinematic. I mean....wow. If you haven't see it yet, don't worry. I'm going to drop it below and you can check it out right now!
Pretty freaking cool, right? As an Alliance player I have to say, when Sylvanas gets all epic banshee queen and starts flipping over walls and shooting her arrows. I'm like, "YASS, GIRL, YAASSS!" and in that moment I crave to be Horde again but in my heart I know I'll always be an Alliance girl. Anduin put me in my feels and when he yelled "FOR THE ALLIANCE!" I got goosebumps.
I'm really excited about this new expansion, Horde and Alliance are going back to war. Which is sort of ironic considering we just came together to defeat the Legion but whatever, Blizz it's cool. The new races seem awesome, I'm sure you'll see me playing a Void Elf or one of the Lightforged Draenei.
We've all heard those trade chatters, "I've been playing since Vanilla" "Vanilla WoW is so much better". They seemingly never get off trade chat but maybe now that Blizzard is taking the game back to its roots with World of Warcraft: Classic, they'll have a reason to step outside of the main cities for awhile.
Check out the sweet, sweet trailer below.
All in all, I'm pretty stoked about the announcement. I'm always excited to hear what the Blizzard team has been up to with their games. I'm such a huge fan and World of Warcraft has, and still is, a huge part of my life. I've been playing on and off for almost 9 years now. It's a game that has gotten me through a lot in my life and I'm sure it's a game I will continue to play no matter what is going on in my life.
Props, Blizz. You guys did good.
