Blizzard Explains The Entire History Of WORLD OF WARCRAFT In This (Almost) One Hour-Long Video

Despite being the most popular MMO ever made, there surely is a group of gamers that needs to refresh their memory or hear World of Warcraft's epic story for the first time before playing Battle for Azeroth...

World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft world of Azeroth, approximately four years after the events at the conclusion of Blizzard's previous Warcraft game, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne which was released 15 years ago. With a peak of 12 million subscriptions in October 2010 and Blizzard's final report of 5.5 million subscriptions in October 2015, WoW remains the world's most-subscribed MMORPG, and holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG by subscribers.

14 years and 6 major expansions later, Blizzard is getting ready to release the seventh DLC, Battle for Azeroth, which will hit the stores this summer. Battle will retell the story of the beginning of the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde. The players will explore a new archipelago where they will be forced to mine a precious staple, Azurite. To conquer these lands, they will assemble their own crews and build ships, but it won't be an easy task, as both sides will try to do the same faster than the other.

There's a chance you have no idea what's going on in the World of Warcraft world and even Duncan Jones' movie left you confused, but Blizzard is here to help. Developers Ion Hazzikostas, Patrick Magruder and Jimmy Lo tell the entire history of World of Warcraft from the game's launch date, until its newest expansion in this video. Better buckle up, as it's almost one hour-long. Take a look:

Azeroth paid a terrible price to end the apocalyptic march of the Legion's crusade—but even as the world's wounds are tended, it is the shattered trust between the Alliance and Horde that may prove the hardest to mend. In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion sets off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the conflict at the heart of the Warcraft saga. As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth's heroes must set out on a journey to recruit new allies, race to claim the world's mightiest resources, and fight on several fronts to determine whether the Horde or Alliance will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will officially launch on August 14 exclusively for PC.
