World of Warcraft is Bringing Thrall Back

Blizzard Entertainment has revealed a new trailer for World of Warcraft to hype up the coming Rise of Azshara update.

The new update brings with it two new zones, Heroic Warfronts, an overhauled Heart of Azeroth system, and – apparently a new Warchief for the Horde. Featured above, a new trailer is teasing the return of the enigmatic Thrall, the previous Warchief.

The above video teases, “Saurfang realizes that if he is to secure a future for the Horde, he must reach out to the one who led it in the past.” Could we be seeing an internal conflict within the Horde? Only time will tell once the update releases. The current Warchief is the undead Banshee Queen, Sylvanas.

A release date for the Rise of Azshara update isn’t confirmed, however it’s expected sometime in late June or early July of this year. World of Warcraft is currently available for Windows PC and Mac.
