Not caught up on the lore? No worries.


World of Warcraft: Legion animated shorts inbound

Blizzard will release a series of animated shorts called harbingers in anticipation of World of Warcraft: Legion.

PCGamesN reports the shorts will be similar in style to those Blizzard released before Warlords of Draenor – not the full cinematic business we got for Overwatch.

According to BlizzardWatch, the first episode will be released publicly pretty soon, and focuses on a high elf who joined Illidan’s Demon Watchers but began to question the movement.

The series will help catch you up on necessary story ahead of Legion’s release, which is handy given how many lapsed players are likely to return to the fold thanks to the Warcraft movie bonus scheme.

World of Warcraft: Legion releases in August.
