Sylvanas puts the WAR in Warbringer!

With World of Warcraft’s next expansion “Battle for Azeroth” on the very near horizon, Blizzard has released the second animated ‘Warbringer’ cinematic in the series. Where the first tale focused on the Alliance mage Jaina Proudmore, this time around it’s the turn of the warchief of the Horde; the Banshee Queen herself – Sylvanas!

Sylvanas is like Marmite, you either love her or hate her and in this outing, she is not trying to make friends.

Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde, leads her forces to victory against the night elves of Darnassus and moves to conquer their home; the great tree Teldrassil. But a chance encounter with a dying young ranger who questions her motives and tells her that she cannot win the war she is truly fighting; a war on life itself. This leads Sylvanas to make a decision that will change the course of history on Azeroth forever.

The Warbringer short also coincides with the release of the War of the Thorns: Chapter 2, part of a limited-time in-game quest series that continues the story of the Horde’s march toward the Nightelf capital city Teldrassil. The Battle for Azeroth is really heating up.
