Warcraft Movie Blu-ray/DVD Comes With WoW and All Expansions Up to Warlords of Draenor
Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm content also included.
This summer's Warcraftcomes to Blu-ray and DVD on September 27. If you're buying the film on the physical format, you could get some extra goodies.
"Select" physical versions of Warcraft will come with a series of digital content, the first piece of which is World of Warcraft. All expansions up to Warlords of Draenor are also included, along with 30 days of game time for new players.
Additionally, the mage hero Medivh is included for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, along with Gul'dan hero for Heroes of the Storm. In a news release, it was mentioned that these extras will be offered only "while supplies last," so if you're interested, you may want to act quickly.
The Blu-ray version comes with a slew of exclusives, including a motion comic, a multi-part documentary on bringing World of Warcraft to film, a featurette on wax Warcraft figures, and the teaser which was shown at San Diego Comic-Con in 2013.
The motion comic features a story that revolves around Prince Llane, Captain Lothar, and Guardian Medivh. The documentary, on the other hand, covers everything from the cast and stunts to the visual effects and mocap.
On top of that, both the Blu-ray and DVD versions feature deleted scenes, a gag reel, an origin story, a feature on Warcraft's fandom, and a look at the visual effects and facial capture technology.
One thing that isn't listed in the Blu-ray/DVD features is the extended edition that was mentioned by director Duncan Jones back in May. Jones explained on Twitter that there would "be no extended cut unless the theatrical [version] does well." Warcraft didn't perform amazingly in North America, but it did surprisingly well in China, even outpacing Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Warcraft arrives on home video in the US and Canada on Blu-ray and DVD on September 27, with a release throughout the rest of the world throughout September and October. The digital version of the movie will be available tomorrow, September 13.
Jones has plans for a Warcraft sequel, but it remains to be seen if one will happen.
