11 posts in this topic

As the release date for the DVD and Blu-ray of Warcraft approaches, let's take a look at the rewards you can get in Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft by purchasing either version.

Physical copies of Warcraft on DVD and Blu-ray will have some lucrative goodies for fans of the Warcraft universe. The copies will come with digital codes for a Medivh Mage hero in Hearthstone, Gul'dan in Heroes of the Storm and another copy of World of Warcraft with 30 days of game time.

Warcraft will be available on September 27 in the U.S. and Canada. It is not known when it is going to be released in Europe and the rest of the world, although French sites report that this should happen around the 11th of October. Lastly, it is not sure if there will be a similar offer in the rest of the world, although we find it unlikely that it won't happen.

From Legendary and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, WARCRAFT is preparing to invade homes worldwide, and it’s bringing a trio of movie-inspired digital extras from Blizzard Entertainment into battle!

Inside select physical editions of WARCRAFT on Blu-ray™ and DVD, movie fans will find digital keys that unlock the following extras for a trio of Blizzard games:

  • Medivh Hero in Hearthstone – Unleash your favorite Mage deck as the Guardian of Tirisfal.
  • Gul’dan Hero in Heroes of the Storm – Rain fel fire down upon the Nexus as this twisted orc Assassin.
  • Digital copy of World of Warcraft – Start your own adventure in Azeroth—or ask a friend to join you on your journey. Includes 30 days of game time for new players.

These goodies are available inside select physical WARCRAFT Blu-ray™ and DVD editions only while supplies last. Be sure to pick up your copy wherever Blu-ray™ and DVDs are sold.

WARCRAFT is available September 27 in the U.S. and Canada, and throughout September and October worldwide. Check product and promotion availability with your local retailers, as extras may differ outside the U.S. and Canada.

lol I knew there had to be some reward for buying the movie. Love that you get guldan in heroes. However, I find the WoW one a bit underwhelming although I understand the marketing "oh you liked the movie? well try the game". However, it would have been nice to have some stupid pet or a toy or something for people already playing wow. Granted we did already get those neat transmogs :)

We already got WoW when we went to see the movie in cinemas... I just wish the WoW reward was better, since it's the game that is most closely related to the movie out of the three.

I was so hyped, then saw the rewards and realised I had them all :(

Still gonna buy it, but I agree that I'd love to have seen some sort of cosmetic reward in WoW. Guess we can get ourselves a RAF reward with it.

I can hope but it seems Legion is doing a good job of that already.

Where do you have to buy this movie to get the content? Is it the steelbook? Is it specific to a store? This article is so vague it just says "select".

Similar wording to what we saw with the cinema promotions. Will have to wait and see it seems for now!

Pretty sure that "physical copies" (beginning of 2nd paragraph) means steelbook. Other than that, as Blainie said, you can see for yourself how vague the blue post - the primary source of this article - is.

Isn't that what our life revolves around? Vague blue posts?

      Please note that the use of third-party software known as "bots" is against the ToS and will get your account suspended. This article is purely informative and doesn't promote botting in any way.
      Blizzard is doing an excellent job to stop botters. The company won another lawsuit against Bossland, the creator of Honorbuddy, one of WoW's most advanced and popular bots. As a result, sales of Honorbuddy must cease in Germany.
      Money is running out and the bot makers will need to move their operations outside of Germany. Blizzard has also been improving Warden's anti-cheating detection algorithms lately, resulting in many banwaves last year. It's worth noting that lawsuits between Blizzard and Bossland are ongoing for several years now and this is the longest time a botting provider was able to keep up with Blizzard without immediately taking down their services.
      Bossland is running out of money, because of expensive lawsuits and low sales, so instead of bringing down the service, they reverted lifetime keys to 2 years. The official court decision isn't yet available to the public.
      Props to Blizzard for striving to make WoW a fair game!

      Diablo is leaking into all the Blizzard franchises during its 20th anniversary, with tavern brawls, portraits, sprays and more showing up everywhere! It seems there's more to come as well, as this announcement is keeping some events close to the vest.

      We know a little bit more about the secret WoW event, as we previously datamined some Diablo-themed items (including a bag and guitar!), so in case you missed it, you can check out that preview here.

      Dave Kosak announced on Twitter that he is now part of the Hearthstone team.
      Dave Kosak is best known as the Lead Narrative (Quest) Designer for World of Warcraft, his role being the creation of "overarching story vision for the franchise" and its implementation ingame. Today, Kosak announced that he is now working with the Hearthstone team.
      Placeholder for tweet 803683460330102784 What could this mean for the future of both franchises? Well, we've recently seen that Hearthstone is becoming more independent from World of Warcraft by having its own unique characters and unexplored storylines. League of Explorers and the soon-to-be-released Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion are good examples of how Hearthstone slowly deviated from its origins. We've also seen Hearthstone characters find their way into World of Wacraft: for example, Sir Finley is a quest giver in Legion.
      It's possible that the devs want to expand even further on the lore of Hearthstone, perhaps making it a separate, spin-off universe altogether. Moreover, it's not entirely unlikely that the story of Hearthstone can inspire the story of World of Warcraft in the future and not the other way around as it was the case up until now.
      At any case, we wish Dave the best of luck in his new position!

      Celebrating the life of a Blizzard employee through the games he helped craft.

      Well this is not new news, in fact we had reported about the sudden appearance of 
      Kanai's Stomping Grounds the day it occurred, Blizzard has released an official acknowledgement of this previously unknown level.

      The post on Battle.net addresses the appearance of the level, confirms that this will be a part of the game annually, and summarises who Kevin was to Blizzard. 

      Blizzard has done an exceptional job of honoring one of their fallen with this tribute, and I just wanted to highlight it so that more people can understand the man behind the reason. 

      Normally, I urge readers to drop their comments below, but this time I urge you to take any nice things you have to say over to the actual post.

      Thanks for reading guys, and stay tuned.
