Warcraft Movie Story, Wiki, News, Official Trailer: Following a similar business tactic that drug dealers have employed for ages, developer Blizzard is giving folks who check out the upcomingWarcraft movie a free, full, copy of World of Warcraft. That’s assuming you see the movie at certain Regal Cinemas (which is running a promo to send folks to BlizzCon, as well), United Artists Theaters or Edwards Theaters here in the United States. The promo is supported abroad too, with Australia, Brazil, Europe, Southeast Asia and New Zealand all getting in on the action. Of course, it’s a digital edition of the game, but hey, most people don’t buy physical copies of PC games anymore anyway.And if you’re already rolling deep in your guild with a level 100 death knight, Blizzard isn’t leaving you out of the movie-themed fun. Logging into the game between May 25th and August 1st nets you a few “movie-inspired transmogrification items,” according to Blizzard. The free game promo lasts quite a bit longer, and goes until New Year’s Day, 2017.The realm of Azeroth is brought to the brink of war in the “Warcraft” movie, due out June 10. Based on the wildly-popular PC game “World of Warcraft,” the film has an estimated budget of more than $100 million.

The game peaked in popularity in 2010, when it boasted 12.1 million active subscribers.Although subscriber numbers have declined and Blizzard looks to move beyond the subscription-based gaming model, “WoW” remains a staple for the brand. It brought in more than $1 billion in revenues and commanded 36 percent of the market share in 2013 alone, reported Forbes. Monthly subscriptions cost between $12.99 and $14.99 per month, depending on subscription length, plus $20 for the base game, which includes the most recent expansion, “Worlds of Draenor.”
