Looks like Blizzard has found an interesting way to get people excited about both the Warcraft movie and to attract new members for its long-running World of Warcraft MMO. Basically, if you go watch the Warcraft movie, Blizzard will hand out a free copy of World of Warcraft, including all of the latest expansion packs and a free month of gameplay. Seems like a decent deal considering WoW costs $19.99 but the offer is exclusively for new members.
There are, as always, a few caveats. The above promotion is for the United States and will be offered through Regal, United Artists, and Edwards Theaters locations. Digital copies of the game will be available “while supplies last” (there’s no word on exactly why the supply of a digital game would ever run out). Other countries are receiving various promotions of their own — Brazilians can receive a free copy of WoW if they order tickets from Ingresso.com, and Australian and New Zealand customers can score a ticket by buying at a participating HOYTS cinema.
