So to those of you who somehow may not already know, Legion, WoW’s upcoming expansion is getting a lot hype! there are multiple reason why this is, but this post will only cover a few such as:
- The Warcraft movie is now only 4 days away from it’s release! Now only will the movie introduce World of Warcraft to a plethora of people who know nothing about it, it is also going to evoke feelings from the games overall player-base. This of course include old, current and new players. So whether someone hasn’t played in a few years or is a active subscriber, people who watch the movie, are going to be very inclined to play the game.
- Blizzard really knows how to capture a audience, because along with the movies’s release they are also going to be giving out free game time to everyone who buys a ticket!
- Twitch is helping with the hype by having WoW make twitch history by coming out with custom badges on the twitch platform! Now, while these badges are only temporary this is a huge publicity step for Blizzard. Before these WoW badges came out, the only other badges anyone could have were for twitch turbo and if you were a mod or up for the streaming site.
Here is the most promotion trailer for Warcraft showcasing the free game time that comes with buying a ticket:
