Blizzard Tips New Trailer for World of Warcraft Documentary
Whether you've been a Blizzard fan since the days of Rock n' Roll Racing, or you've just recently learned of the company because of some crazy new card game that everyone's talking about on Twitch and YouTube, you might want to cancel some of your plans this weekend. It's time for Blizzcon, the annual convention extravaganza Blizzard holds in Anaheim, California.
If you don't have a ticket (spoiler: it's sold out), and you aren't as crazy as the guy with 29 top-level World of Warcraft characters who's already waiting in line for the convention to start tomorrow, then you probably aren't going to be able to actually make it. You can, however, spend $40 to pick up a virtual ticket for 'complete HD access to Blizzard's epic two-day gaming convention,' as the company describes on its website.
If you plan to stay glued to your computer across the entire weekend (especially for that little Metallica bit), be sure to clear out some time on Saturday around 5 p.m. PST. That's when Blizzard is debuting the big documentary celebrating World of Warcraft's 10th anniversary, Asylum Entertainment's (cleverly titled) Looking for Group. Blizzard just released a brand-new trailer yesterday, which is embedded below.
'This decade-spanning archive explores the history of WoW with the people who create it, collects stories from players around the world, and takes you into corners of Blizzard and the WoW community you've never seen before,' Blizzard said in a Wednesday blog post.
Thankfully, you don't need the fancy virtual ticket to watch Blizzard's documentary. Not only will it go up on Blizzard's live stream for World of Warcraft, but it'll also be made available on Hulu and Hulu Plus, the World of Warcraft YouTube page, and the main World of Warcraft site.
As for Blizzcon, it's expected that Blizzard will be announcing a new expansion to its Hearthstone card game this weekend, details related to the next expansion for its Starcraft II RTS, and... who knows what else? There's been a little rumormongering that Blizzard might announce a brand-new game entirely this weekend, but that seems to be the oft-repeated speculation just about every year.
