The fires of war rage across Azeroth, but legendary Horde warrior Varok Saurfang wants no part in the fighting. After a lifetime spent on the front lines, he has outlived most of those closest to him, even his own son. On the eve of a battle that will determine the Horde’s fate, the old soldier must choose whether to finally lay down his axe for good.

    That was incredible.

    NO idea why the ridiculous timing of it though. It's the middle of the night! Unless this is a boon to the Asian and Australian timezone peeps to have something release in their relative timezones for once, in which, cool for them I guess?

    Still, this might not get the media hype it deserves for how awesome it was.

    This was a big surprise! I wonder if this is part of the things they've "never tried before" we've been hearing about? I wonder if we'll see an Alliance-focused CGI cutscene as well?

    Amazing cinematic.... Saurfang is one of the best developed characters in Warcraft history. He will either end up being Warchief by the end of the expansion, or do one of the most heroic sacrifices ever seen in this game's history...

    This may actually be the best cinematic Blizzard has made thus far. Completely unexpected, completely awesome, ties into the first one.

    Damn, if only we got an animated movie like this.

    It is early morning in Europe and early afternoon in Asia/Australia. So all in all, a little weird. It was likely pushed for earlier release due to the sheer amount of discussion after the Burning. Counter some of the bad publicity.

    I'm pretty sure that it was the highest quality CGI that they have done for WoW for any purpose. Even the BFA opening cinematic was shorter and lower def.
