Blizzard wasted no time at their panel at San Diego Comic Con today. The California based company released three pieces of supplemental lore for their upcoming World of Warcraft: Legion expansion pack in three very different forms. The first is episode one of a new animated series of shorts called World of Warcraft: Harbingers – The Story of Gul’dan. Told from the perspective of the first Orc warlock and series antagonist, the six minute animation tells the story of Gul’dan’s life.
The audio drama World of Warcraft: Legion “The Tomb of Sargeras” was also announced at the panel today. To be delivered as a free podcast, the drama is written by Blizzard Story Developer Robert Brooks, who has written for all three of Blizzard’s franchises. The series will be narrated by Steven Pacey, a well known West End actor and cast member of Blake’s 7 on BBC.
The series will cover Gul’dan’s quest to reopen the Burning Portal at the Tomb of Sargeras. Legendary Archmage Khadgar is hunting Gul’dan and will do anything to stop the Burning Legion’ return to Azeroth. The podcast and the teaser trailer is available on iTunes.
Finally, Blizzard has released the comic World of Warcraft: Legion #4. Entitlerd “Anduin: Son of the Wolf,” the issue follows Anduin’s struggle as a leader and as a young man. The comic is available for free directly from Blizzard as a PDF or as a motion book through Madefire.
