Everyone who sees the movie at a participating Regal Cinemas, United Artists Theaters, or Edwards Theaters locations in the US will get a free digital copy of World of Warcraft. If you're in the Regal Crown Club, you can also enter for a chance to win tickets to BlizzCon 2016 in November.

As of October 2014, the standard $20 version of World of Warcraft comes with the base game and expansions The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria. However, it remains to be seen if this is also the case for the promotional version of World of Warcraft given to moviegoers.

The next World of Warcraft expansion is Legion, which comes out in August.

Head to the Warcraft promo site to learn more. Additionally, other countries and regions, including Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil, are also offering free game codes with the purchase of a movie ticket. You can visit this page to learn more about international offers.

On top of this, Blizzard has announced an in-game promotion for Warcraft. Everyone who logs into World of Warcraft May 25-August 1 will get free "movie-inspired" transmogrication items. As you might have guessed, these are themed around the Alliance and Horde; you can see the items in the gallery below.
