After Blizzard's machinima team stretched its wings with the inclusion of WoW
's first in-game cutscene, The Wrathgate, players have expressed their praise and hope that more cinematics would be included in Warcraft
in coming expansions. With the success of The Wrathgate
, Blizzard included Arthas' end
in cinematic form after his defeat on Icecrown. When Cataclysm
released, both the goblins
were treated to cinematics that transitioned the player from starting zone to a larger world with an epic cutscene and story. Now, the Dragon Soul raid and the ending of Cataclysm
are marked with story cutscenes showing off Deathwing's anger, Thrall blasting Deathwing
out of the sky and parachuting onto Deathwing's back
. Even Cataclysm
's twist ending
got a cinematic.
Which cinematic was your favorite? The betrayal of the Forsaken at the Wrathgate still holds a very special place in my heart since it was the first time cinematics were done in WoW
. It was a home run from the start. Watching Sky Captain Swayze and Ka'anu jump out of the Skyfire, along with my raid, also ranks high on the list of cutscenes for me, even if it's only a few seconds long.
