Blizzard had community creators make Wrath of the Lich King classic trailer, and it’s the best

Blizzard has released a new “Journey” trailer for the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion for Warcraft Classic, and it’s amazing — but not for the usual reasons. When I think of Blizzard cutscenes, the first thing that comes to mind is the lavish CG glasses that transport us into the world of Overwatch, or the ridiculous OTT cutscenes of Diablo and StarCraft. However, it’s all about the players.

There’s a reason for this. This video was made by Hurricane, a youtuber who specializes in making great WoW trailers, and has been doing it for years. But they’ve always been a fan creator, someone loved by the community but doing their own thing, and this is their first commission from Blizzard.
