Blizzard released the cinematic intro video for World of Warcraft Cataclysm expansion last week. The game company is building up momentum for the December 7, 2010 launch of Cataclysm.
The cinematic starts with the Cataclysm’s main antagonist, Deathwing the Destroyer with his new massive elementium armor reforged and being fitted to him in Deepholm. The Shattering follows in the cinematic wherein earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods devastated the world of Azeroth.
Here is the text of Deathwing’s narration for the cataclysm cinematic:
Pain. Agony. My hatred burns through the cavernous deeps. The world heaves with my torment. Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage. But at last, the whole of Azeroth will break!!! And all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings!!!
Deathwing then flies around Azeroth (I recognized some scenery as The Barrens, Darkshore and Thousand Needles among others) with the last part of the cinematic showing black dragon aspect ready to assault Stormwind.
The video has now reached 5 million views in Youtube (as of writing this post), and its interesting to know the what other WoW gamers have in mind for the cinematic via the video comment 🙂 .
