I’ve been reading Arthas, Rise of the Lich King lately and it got me thinking about the accumulated lore of the Warcraft universe. Simply put, there’s a lot of it and a good part of it is either contained in the older game or in various media. For example, if you want to get the whole story behind the Sunwell you’re looking at playing warcraft 2 and 3, read the manga, a few books and play WoW.
Books like Arthas does a decent job of getting some of that information together but I’m wondering if a game going over the extended Warcraft storyline could be a good idea? Maybe something more along the lines of a classical rpg that would allow you to explore the lore more in-depth. I know that given the huge cast of characters it might not be easy to design but I’m confident someone could come up with a good idea.
So, am I alone in thinking it’s time that we get a game that would go over the back story of Warcraft?
