BlizzCon 2010: New WoW Cinematic for The Worgen
A new WoW cinematic was unveiled at BlizzCon on Saturday. The scene was the opening for the Worgen, who are going to be the new additions to the Alliance in Cataclysm. The Worgen are a werewolf species with the ability to transform into humans.
In the cinematic a mysterious stranger addresses a captured Worgen in a cage. The stranger implies that the Worgen had done some horrible things and deserved to be imprisoned. Shots of the Worgen running through the woods and being generally creepy help to emphasize this point.
Apparently, the humans who captured the Worgen believe it can be redeemed, the stranger on the other hand, isn’t so sure. This leaves us with one of two possibilities when you take control of the Worgen: Either you break out of the cage and go on a brutal killing spree (fingers crossed), or the humans let you out of the cage in some misguided attempt at rehabilitating you. I suppose a third possibility would be that you simply stay inside your cell and complete a lot of cage-based quests, like reflecting on your life and doing prison work outs.
I’m very excited about Worgen’s debut in Cataclysm. They are definitely the darkest option of the Alliance and their appeal might draw some Horde players over to the other side to see what kind of chaos is to be had as a werewolf. I know the cinematic definitely piqued my interest in the new race. There was no mention as to whether or not the cinematic would be made available prior to the release Cataclysm.
