The launch event is taking place tonight (12 October) at gaming-themed Loading Bar in Dalston, London. Warcraft will be partnering with the bar, re-naming the venue to ‘The Lion’s Pride Inn’ – the popular watering hole from the film and game and will also be unveiling an exhibition of props from the actual film.
There will also be giveaways and Warcraft gaming stations supported by Warcraft game developer Blizzard Entertainment. At the launch event fans can also check out a livestream featuring Warcraft YouTuber, 'Preach Gaming'.
From 12-31 October, fans can pop down to the newly-decked-out bar and try various themed Warcraft cocktails such as ‘Wrath of the Lichee King’ and ‘The Burning Boozede’ along with the opportunity to play the game itself in the decked-out environment.
Madame Tussauds teamed up with Legendary Pictures to create a World of Warcraft-themed experience which toured its attractions from May, before going on an international tour. Retro gaming provider Reztron has hosted a number of fan events this year, including a Hawaiian-inspired gaming party.
