    I ain't believing shit, not til I've seen it officially.
    The pillars in the back do match Vol'dun pillars. I'd be more inclined to believe someone faked these than that someone had access to the video to screenshot it, would actually screenshot it... but it's the best looking fake we've gotten in a long time if so.

    That was my first thought as well. Unfortunately we saw the Blizz ones first and thus anyone could have copied them.

    One looks "older" and "weathered" with overgrowth.

    I'm pretty sure they're based on Sholazzar lamps that appear like that in a few places, so that's an old Wrath era asset to draw from

    It's because it was probably AI generated and then they threw random models on top and added shadows manually. So the models are slightly off in perspective and lighting and the shadows don't look like the match. Gives a similar impression to the character creation screen (those are also flat with 3D models on top).

    Oh I know, but I mean lorewise they better not tell me that this whole other continent is actually just an island like Kul Tiras or the Broken Isles. If we do get Avaloren, it better take up a Kalimdor sized spot on the map.

    Have we seen that big dino in game or a datamined model?



    Someone on the SoL discord said the dwarf looks like a drakonid frame. Blizzard does like to reuse things.

    Last pic looks titanic to me, like the Elunaria zone we went to in Antorus/Time rift.

    We're at the phase where people are giving completely design-illiterate takes in response to something that may or may not be real and that is impossible to parse at a low resolution.

    The good news is, that means it's a good time to start anticipating a real smoking gun soon if this isn't it. (Blue-Eyes White Bolvar is totally a photoshop, those Dracthyr are from Second Life, etc.)

    The bad news is, almost every single take just keeps tanking how I feel about the human race.

    I can tell this one is legit because it already feels something interesting and enticing, but also incredibly disappointing.

    I don't think they are definitely real. But I'm definitely not going to dismiss them outright, either. I remember the reactions to the Bastion image and the dracthyr character creation screenshot. Heh.

    Totally legit. Same ol' "requisite 4 different climes/biomes that probably don't make sense being so close to each other" and recycled mobs like harpies we've come to know and love.

    I am really curious about what is sticking out of the back of the mountain dwarfs back. This could potentially be AI generated with some photoshop work added in, but this is still impressive if that's the case.

    Really? The top zone looks like it came from this DI zone;

    This is the way.

    Another 2 year cycle, another high likelihood of a 5-zone status quo island, with a bonus that they called that in DF as the "expected" size of a modern expansion. But hey, this time for sure...

    Yeah. If we get Avaloren then only doing 4-5 zones is fine as long as there's still a bunch of landmass left over for future expansions to fill out. If it's just another island then oof.
