For those who haven’t been following the World of Warcraft story to date, in the Battle for Azeroth expansion, it basically saw current Horde Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner go a bit crazy with her power, eliminating many of her enemies in brutal manner in the process. Safe to say, not all members of the Horde agree with her methods, leading to the ousting one at least one of her high-ranking generals, Varok Saurfang.
In a new trailer released by Blizzard, it shows how Saurfang has gone in search of one of the former Warchiefs of the Horde, who is none other than Thrall. The trailer shows Saurfang trying to convince Thrall to come back from his retirement and self-imposed exile to fight for the Horde and bring it back to its former glory.
In the process, several assassin’s sent by Sylvanas make an appearance which only further convinces Thrall that he needs to return. Previously, there were some reports about how a new Thrall model was spotted in the game files, hinting at the character’s return, and this trailer seems to have proven that.
Some have made comparisons between this storyline and the Mists of Pandaria expansion, where we saw Warchief Garrosh Hellscream also try to use his power to impose his will, resulting in the majority of the Horde turning against him in the process. It will be interesting to see what this could mean for the story and what future expansions may entail, but if you have a couple of minutes to spare, check the trailer out above.
