Okay, so the Warcraft movie really and truly exists, sort of. And ahead of the full trailer reveal on Friday at BlizzCon, Blizzard’s released a sneak-peak teaser-for-a-teaser type of thing that gives us our first look at the film proper:
It looks...surprisingly decent? At least as far as the visuals are concerned. The story could still be a pile of tripe, for all we know, though I still have some naïve hope it might turn out good—mostly because it’s directed by Duncan Jones, and I loved Moon.
As I said, expect the full reveal during Blizzard’s keynote address on Friday morning, at 11 a.m. Pacific. You can watch it live here, or stay tuned to our site where we’ll be posting the inevitable YouTube version.
In other Warcraft news, Blizzard said today it’s done sharing World of Warcraft subscriber numbers, a tradition it’s kept up every three months since the game launched (per IGN). “Note that this is the last quarter that we plan to provide subscriber numbers. There are other metrics that are better indicators of the overall Blizzard business performance,” said Blizzard, after revealing the game had dropped to 5.5 million users.
I guess it’s time for Warcraft 4. Please.
