Blizzard has released a trailer for ‘World of Warcraft- Battle for Azeroth’, detailing the events leading up to the reveal trailer which debuted at Blizzcon last year.

The trailer follows Varok Saurfang, a veteran of several wars and current leader of the Orcs, as he attempts to reconcile the fact that he is yet to receive a warrior’s death, yet faces certain defeat in a battle he does not believe in.

Centring an entire cinematic around a character who changes his mind and chooses not to die hint that Saurfang will have a big impact on the future of ‘World of Warcraft’. With in-universe characters and players alike expressing distaste for Sylvanas Windrunner, who recently¬†burned the ancient home of the night elves in cold blood,¬†it is clear that Saurfang may be in the running to dethrone Sylvanas and become Warchief, returning the horde to honourable leadership once again.
