Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Warcraft
Director: Duncan Jones
Screenwriter: Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones
Cast: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: June 10th, 2016

Critics have been rather harsh to Warcraft so far, and as the lights dimmed and the movie started, I came into the theater thinking that I was only there to throw a little love on director Duncan Jones. Jones has had a rough year so far, and this whole movie is a big risk for not only him, but also for Blizzard Entertainment, who created the game that the movie draws inspiration from, World of Warcraft.

So how was the movie, when watched by a hardcore WoW geek?

New Content For ‘Diablo III’ Arrives From Blizzard

Diablo III

In an age for video games where new content for older games comes at a price and where video game companies often are more interested in the next release of a game (I’m looking at you Call of Duty franchise) instead of new content for an older game, you have Blizzard Entertainment who apparently doesn’t subscribe to either of those plans. As of last night, Patch 2.4.0 for Blizzard’s 2011 hit Diablo III went live. That’s right, hot and fresh new content for a game released almost 5 years ago. That’s “forever” in today’s video game world.

Continue below to read more about what the new patch delivers and to watch a video which shows a new area to visit.

World of Warcraft Legion Expansion

Blizzard Entertainment this morning at Gamescom in Germany officially revealed the next chapter in the World of Warcraft series: World of Warcraft: Legion. The new expansion will expand the level cap once again, this time to 110. Also there will be a new playable class: Demon Hunter.

With the announcement comes a new high res CGI sizzle reel featuring Gul’dan and a brief video explaining a few of the new features. The new class will be a “Hero” class in the vein of the Death Knight class from the games 3rd expansion: Wrath of the Lich King. They will have unique abilities like seeing through walls and a double jump. The sizzle reel shows Gul’dan awakening the most well-known demon hunter in Illidan Stormrage. New demon hunters will be called upon by Illidan to fulfill quests as part of their “awakening”. Death Knights started at level 55 after isolated questing, it would be safe to say we’ll see a similar experience in Legion with Demon Hunters.

Continue below for more and to watch a feature overview of Legion and a cinematic teaser.

This past weekend at Blizzard Entertainment’s big show BlizzCon in Anaheim, CA, Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment pulled the curtain back on more details about Warcraft, the much-anticipated live-action film adaptation of Blizzard’s popular video game.

Director Duncan Jones appeared on a panel for the film and the characters for the film were revealed, along with some new actors. See the list below of characters and their respective actors, divided up between “Alliance” and “Horde.”

It was also confirmed that Warcraft will be visiting the world of Azeroth as it was in the age of the first war.
