You might get World of Warcraft for free when you go to see the movie

May include everything but Legion

Everybody knows cinema tickets are expensive as all hell. You spend upwards of £20 to sit in a room with a load of noisy, obnoxious arseholes and ultimately get a worse experience than if you just watched it in your underwear at home. That would all remain true for the upcoming Warcraft movie too, had Blizzard not just managed to sweeten the deal somewhat.

According to email surveys sent out by Blizzard, it is considering giving everybody who goes to see Warcraft a free copy of World of Warcraft and all of its currently released expansions. Dubbed the Ultimate Movie Edition, the bundle would also include a month of game time and a free, exclusive item.

While many on reddit initially assumed this was some sort of phishing attempt, a Blizzard rep confirmed that it is indeed considering this deal. There has yet to be an official confirmation that it will be going ahead, but it’s an appealing offer nonetheless.

I’m not entirely sure why somebody who’s never played WoW would sit through the Warcraft movie (other than for my lovely Durotan, of course), but hey, a free copy World of Warcraft might just be a good enough deal for me to put some trousers on…
