The Regal Entertainment Group announced an exclusive offer for moviegoers that plan on watching “Warcraft” this summer. The company stated that each moviegoer will enjoy a free digital copy of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft, which includes one month of game time, for fee. The promotion will be compliments of Regal and Blizzard. Warcraft, directed by Duncan Jones and distributed by Universal, will be in theatres on June 10.
“We are excited to partner with Blizzard Entertainment on this amazing offer. At Regal, we are always looking to reward our guests and making it more than a movie,” said Kelly Hawkins, Vice President of Loyalty Marketing at Regal Entertainment Group. “Additionally, members of our industry-leading Crown Club also have a chance to win a trip to this year’s BlizzCon®, and socialize with other Warcraft fans when they use their card with purchase.”
Regal Crown Club members who use their card when they purchase tickets to see Warcraft, will automatically be entered to win a trip for two to this year’s BlizzCon from November 4 – 5 in Anaheim, CA. The Warcraft Sweepstakes ends on Thursday, June 23, 2016.
In celebration of the Warcraft movie’s release, Blizzard will be giving out in-game items in World of Warcraft that allows players to modify their weapons with movie-inspired looks. This set of in-game gear includes a Horde axe, the staff of the fel-twisted orc warlock Gul’dan, and the ornate sword and shield carried by soldiers of the Alliance. This content will be available for a limited time and automatically added to players’ collection when they log in to the game between May 25 and August 1.
The movie itself comes from Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures. The story is an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.
In the story, the peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.
The studio teases, “So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.”
