The new expansion for the hit MMORPG, World of Warcraft, is on its way August 30, and fans are getting excited. While some people are worried about WoW: Legion after the previous expansion, many others are excited for the MMO to redeem itself with all new updates, zones, bosses, lore, the new weapon system, and new Demon Hunter class. I am in the latter camp because, let's be honest, Legion just looks amazing. And what is more amazing than the game itself is the fact that Legion has its own comic. That's pretty sick! World of Warcraft: Legion Issue 2, “Twilight of Suramar”, will be released on Battle.net by July 7.
If you haven't seen anything about Legion, then take a look at the trailer below.
Blizzard Loves Using Comics For Out-of-game World Building
This isn't the first time Blizzard has branched out into other formats leading up to a release. Most notably, the launch of Overwatch featured a series of comics and CGI short-films to precede the release. Also, we've already got World of Warcraft: Legion Issue 1, "Magni: Fault Lines." Pretty freaking cool, right? You can read that or download the regular print version here. The interactive comic is very slick and more intense.
World Of Warcraft: Legion Issue 2, 'Twilight Of Suramar'
What we have is a preview from the second installation of our new awesome comic. Check out the synopsis below:
Deep within the Night Elven city of Suramar, home of the Nightborne, the Orc warlock Gul’dan issues a terrifying ultimatum: surrender the Nightwell, the source of their power, or see their homeland destroyed beneath the heel of the Burning Legion. As evil descends, the grand magistrix must decide whether to trust her enemy or risk all to stand strong.
That leaves us with quite the cliffhanger, huh? All we have to do now is wait and see to find out what happens next! That's easier said than done, because it's not every day we get to see Orcs ( Gul’dan, no less) and Night Elves potentially making a pact together. So keep your eyes out for it on July 7, everyone!
What To Expect
Well, we already know the comics are set to continue the Legion storyline, and people are loving them so far. The community is rooting for all the writers, because if you haven't noticed yet, they've been kicking mega ass. It will be interesting to see interactions between a lot of the important characters in the World of Warcraft universe. We can be sure to see the point of view from both the Horde and Alliance, since they will have to overcome these trials together or maintain their shared hatred and go down in flames.
