Posted on July 29, 2014, Stew Shearer Warcraft’s Lore Compressed Into 40-Minute YouTube Primer
Warcraft’s lore has been condensed down into a single 40-minute video.
The video, which was published on YouTube by user Nobbel87, runs a total of 41 minute and 52 second and covers the entirety of the existing Warcraft timeline, beginning with the old school real-time strategy titles and ending with the current state of things in World of Warcraft. The video, according to Nobbel87, was created as “a beginner['s] guide” to the series lore.
“Warcraft has a pretty damn big story behind it and in this video I’m going to tell you the global story from start to finish,” he said. “See this as a beginner['s] guide to lore!”
Considering the fact that World of Warcraft was many people’s introduction to the franchise (not to mention gaming), a video like this is definitely a practical way to educate gamers interested in the series but not keen on playing their way through several decades worth of old games. It likewise might come in handy for World of Warcraft fans who have made a habit of charging through quests while skipping the game’s story bits. If you like it, you might also want to go ahead and check out the rest of Nobell87′s channel which features several other lengthy videos detailing even more of Warcraft’s extensive lore.
