Plot Edit

An epic fantasy/adventure based on the Warcraft popular video game franchise and novels set in the world of Azeroth. The story will center around the first encounter of orcs fleeing their dying world and humans unprepared for their sudden and violent arrival. However, not all the orcs are hostile and not all humans are the paragons of good. Also the motivations on each side are complex and varied with the interplay of peace, war, fear, and survival.

Official synopsis Edit

FROM OPPOSING SIDES, TWO HEROES ARE SET ON A COLLISION COURSE THAT WILL DECIDE THE FATE OF THEIR FAMILY, THEIR PEOPLE AND THEIR HOME.
