Warcraft Documentary Gets Trailer, Will Debut at BlizzCon
Whether the World of Warcraft hit its peak (and when, exactly, it hit its peak) is a debate for the ages, but one thing is clear about this MMORPG: it's a monstrous, unprecedented success and has kept a stranglehold on the MMO market for over a decade, outliving the rise and fall of countless other games claiming to be the "WoW-Killer." At this year's Blizzcon, developer Blizzard will be showing off 'Looking for Group', a documentary created to highlight this cultural phenomenon.
First of all, let's address the fact that freaking Superman is in this documentary. That's awesome. Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, the rest of the trailer indicates 'Looking for Group' will cover the gamut of WoW experiences— what it was like for the development team to deal with such a runaway success, the creativity that goes into keeping a game fresh and engaging for over a decade, and, most importantly, the fans, and what this title means to them.
WoW recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, and will probably continue to do so well through BlizzCon, which is happening this weekend. For those who can't physically go, Blizzard has offered virtual tickets to give you first dibs on the BlizzCon news and glorious Blizzard swag.
