It turns out that Blizzard was saving something special for Gamescom 2018 after all. At the show, the World of Warcraft studio unveiled the third and final video for its Battle for Azeroth “Warbringers” series, this time focusing on the terrifying character of Azshara — and the deal that she made with the old gods. But of course, this expansion has everything to do with factional conflict and nothing to do with the old gods, so just put that out of your pretty little head.
The studio also sponsored a Video Games Live concert at Gamescom to sponsor the music from its various games, including Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch. And yes, that haunting “Daughter of the Sea” ballad that’s become a quick favorite of Battle for Azeroth made an appearance during the show.
Speaking of Battle for Azeroth, Polygon has an amusing piece up that examines how the expansion continues with Blizzard’s bizarre streak of poop-related quests. “It turns out you can shine a turd,” the author writes. “Here are the five times Blizzard has done it best.”
