World Of Warcraft : discover “Old Soldier” the crazy cinematic before the Battle For Azeroth

Aug 6, 2018

Old Soldier

The release of World of Warcraft’s Battle for Azeroth is fast approaching, prompting Blizzard to unveil a new video today with legendary warrior Horde Varok Saurfang.

The video opens up with Saurfang reflecting on a paramount moment in his life, the death of his son. For fans of the MMORPG, they’ll recognize the walls of Lordearon, which has been under attack by the Alliance following the events surrounding Teldrassil, which we saw during Sylvana’s short.

We also see a conversation between Saurfang and “Zappy Boy” Zekhan, another familiar face. A familiar troll face. This video is imperative for the Horde lore and shows the hidden conflict leading up to Sylvanas’s burning rage and his dissociation from everything he’s known. This short continues to show the grey areas of both the Alliance and the Horde, making the climatic apex of Battle for Azeroth much more decisive than previous expansions.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth begins August 14th!

What faction do you fight for? The Horde or the Alliance?
