Blizzard should make Warcraft 4. World of Warcraft is awesome and everything...but people sometimes forget where Warcraft's origins were...not in an RPG...but in an RTS. Plus, the way they infused RTS and RPG in Warcraft 3 was AWESOME.

It's true that arthas become what he wanted to stop, not his fault to be honest, if your father is a hero of war, and your mentor is also a hero of war, everyone expects greater things from the kings son, in a way, Arthas surpassed both Uther and his own father, in a way, Arthas stopped the undead scourge, it is only at the end of his campaign that the Lich King defeated the last of Humanity in Arthas, in a way, there is no victor over Arthas's soul, also, by launcing a full assault at Azeroth he forces everyone to finish off the Lich King sho can no longer predict future because Kil'Jaden has been defeated at sunwell therefore the demonic source of power for Lich Kings seer ability is cut off, truly a masterpiece at plotting blizz is ;] Death Knights had recived an unfair criticism from other players that did not understand fully why a DK is avaible to all races, one of the players revealed the reason behind thi, the in-game reason is, that Lich King had access to all races dead heroes and those that has been captured have also been converted, not many ppl ever use brain theese days.

A Dark Knight should not even be able to come against the Lich King! That's killing his/her Father too! LoL FYI: The movie will be expensive, probably canceled midway just like Justice League!

spartantec1 I agree Arthas is a tragic character during warcraft 3 campaign, but to know that he killed his paladin mentor Uther who was warcraft 2 hero, and his father the King of Lordaeron also hero of warcraft 2, and devastated human magic kingdom Dalaran, killed most of the high elves we know them as Blood elves, and his kingdom Lordaeron that is infested with Undead forsaken. Yeah talk about hideously vile villian, he is so much worse than Adikan Skywalker. Sure Darth Vader whiped all the Jedi, and ruled the universe with his iron first, but Arthas Killed his real father, and destroyed most of the heroes and Kingdom of Alliance.

Arthas is not fully bad...or still there maybe hope in him...maybe. He was exactly the way his father narrates in this video but he was too overprotective of his people and sacrificed himself for control of frostmourne(which supposedly changes the holder's character)...to save his people which ultimately backfired..he is doing everything he meant not to become...climbing up the ranks of the undead he is now the Lich king...awesome..i like his character development a lot..but i am sure someday he will have to turn back and pay for all sins and betray the undead..other side of me doesnt want to :) c'mon make Warcraft 4 already!!!

i still think they should of done it the right way about the DK so that only certain people could be him. SUCH making a pally turn into one via quest not this starting lvl 55 crap give pallys a reason to keep playing

This trailer looks cool but it is odd the way they always do these amazing movies that have nothing to do with the visuals of the game. It's like doing a Spielberg style trailer for Pong.

If they do have a warcraft 4 in the works they won't release it until starcraft II and Diablo III have died down. I would say about 2011 Perhaps 2012.

Aragorn_Narsil thats only for people who don't know how to moderate them selves. What about all those people who are addicted to CS,Halo,COD4 and go on 9-10 hour game play runs. Its just as bad when you don't monitor your self.

Arthas is a scumbag who killed his own father. Is time to kick his ass once and for all!

For the sake of blizzard is better if the game is as great as the trailer or blizzard will loose costumers and it's reputation of the past Warcraft games.

Seemed too simple to me, hope Guild Wars 2 can top it. I wouldn't expect less after that Factions opening. *Everyone vote thumbs down on my commint, lets see how far it goes!*
