No doubt, “gaming” is a global sensation. In China, PC gaming is taken to a whole new level, with 517 million gamers, surpassing the number of U.S citizens. I wanted to explore this phenomenon further, so I went to a gamers paradise: a “PC Bang.” I interviewed three gamers who live in Shanghai, China and one gamer who currently lives in the United states to find out what these PC sanctuaries are like.
That’s right guys, Warcraft is happening. In the film directed by Duncan Jones and written by Jones and Chris Metzen, the plot will follow with the alliances set in the video game and novels. With the film being an origin story based off the relationship of humans and orcs, it has a huge cast of characters established in the video game. Legendary Films helped finance the $100 million budget and the film will be released by Universal Pictures on June 10, 2016.
The film will follow humans living on Azeroth while Orc warriors invade the land as their world of Draenor dies. Sir Anduin Lothar leads the humans and Durotan leads the orcs as the worlds become connected through the Dark Portal.
