New World of Warcraft Animated Short Answers Major Questions About Sylvanas Windrunner (VIDEO)
World of Warcraft‘s latest upcoming expansion Battle for Azeroth is only two weeks away and many fans are looking forward to new areas and a whole host of new alternate versions of existing races. Players will finally be able to play as variations like Dark Iron Dwarves and Lightforged Dranei for the first time. Other announced features include a new 20 player PvE mode called Warfront, new dungeons and raids, as well as a Level cap raise to 120. As a lead up to the release Blizzard has released the first of a series of animated shorts looking back on the origins of important figures involved in the expansion’s main conflict.
The first subject of these shorts is none other than the Queen of the Forsaken herself, Sylvanas Windrunner. The banshee is seen in this short in the aftermath of a battle with the Alliance conversing with a defeated Night Elf. Check out the 4 minute short below:
According to Blizzard, “In war, nothing is certain. In just one moment, a single action can determine victory or defeat. For Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde, war has led her to many such moments—including one that will change the course of history on Azeroth.”
Sylvanas has been a prominent character in the Warcraft franchise since the third game and was especially present as the leader of the Undead race since players can find her in the Undercity since the launch of the game. While we haven’t seen her outside of the city much except for specific story-related quests, I hope she takes a central role in the upcoming conflict and we can really see her command the forces of the Horde beyond her normal homestead in the underbelly of Azeroth.
