World of Warcraft’s movie transmog items just ask you to log in

Baby, it's cold outside.

Are you excited about the upcoming World of Warcraft tie-in with the film? Are you annoyed because you’re going to have to buy a ticket to get those transmog items? Well, the good news for both groups is that the items have been datamined, and all that’s required is… logging in within two months of the film’s premiere. Whether that simple requirement is there to make sure you don’t have to see the movie or whether it reminds you to stop going back to the movie and log into the game is left as an exercise in reader speculation.

Of course, perhaps the movie itself could have been made on a cheaper budget; an enterprising fan recently re-created the trailer more or less shot-for-shot using World of Warcraft models and environments. You can check that out just below if you’re eager to see what the movie would look like with the same acting but far less money spent on greenscreen and sets. (It is debatable whether using in-game models counts as more or less money spent on CGI.)

Hey this is awesome, wicked cool! I’m fairly new to this game but loving it so much, endless hours of fun with friends and online friends. I’m sick of having no gold in WoW though and never knowing how to level up fast, I found this and was wondering if I should get it or not? all advice would be greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance. http://gamerfiend.com/hayden-hawkes-secret-gold-guide

BalsBigBrother I kind of thought the same. WoW’s graphics have a lot of charm, and that transferred well into the updated models (even though my blood elf’s face looks weird to me now QQ).

If you like “Vikings”, you’ll love Travis Fimmel in the Warcraft movie. He plays both characters the same exact way, with the same exact accent. And summer has always been a time for shallow movies.

definitely shoulda been a CG movie…  I really just hope this has been a case of terrible trailers.

I do not like WoW at all. but I enjoy the show Vikings and the lead in this is really great in that show which means I might just go check this movie out. I think there might actually be more non-game fans that enjoy the movie vs those who are diehard WoW fans because you guys will be overly critical of it whereas I just enjoy some decent fantasy movies. Now this movie might not be a decent fantasy flick, but at least my criticisms would be based on the movie and not the game. Also if this movie turns out to be great then it will not persuade me to play WoW so if that’s what Blizzard is hoping for they will be mistaken. 

On a side note, if this summer was really filled with some meaningful movies, I probably wouldn’t even think about going to see this and just wait for it, but have you seen the garbage coming out this summer? X-Men is getting slammed by critics already and it has not interested me in the slightest. Ghostbusters already has a puke in your mouth taste from all of the negative and rightly so criticisms from the trailer. Suicide might be a surprise hit kind of like Deadpool. Other than that I think I’m looking more forward to the McDonald’s founder drama than most of the huge popcorn flicks this summer..

I still don’t get the hate the upcoming movie gets for it’s CG.  I don’t mind it’s look what so ever, still looking forward to it.  The above was alright but I still prefer to see the actual movie.

I would’ve paid to go and see this.
…but not the mistake that is the actual movie.
Seriously, if Blizzard’s CG Movie team had done the WoW movie it would have been amazing!
I have no idea what they were thinking letting another studio butcher it with green skin paint, bad CG, and budget costumes.

I’d be much more interested if that was the real movie. As it is now I’m expecting very little but I’ll rent it at some point
