We understand that some people would prefer not to be spoiled about the newest developments in World of Warcraft, especially as the latest patch hasn’t been out very long and some players would prefer to see the new content in the context of the actual game. So we’re deliberately drawing out this introduction to avoid spoiling anything… but then, the latest cinematic was posted to the official YouTube channel, and while it basically tells you how the latest stage ends it also has some big implications for the future of the game.
Specifically, this cinematic is really dropping some hints about the future of the faction split or lack thereof. You can watch it just below, but suffice it to say that the character of the dialogue implies that while the Horde and Alliance have done the “work together to overcome a common enemy” routine many times before (with a pretty strong implication of who that common enemy will be), this time might be very different. Check out the whole thing below if you’re curious.
