World of Warcraft Fine Art Print Collection
High Fantasy, Boldly Drawn. The Art of World of Warcraft®!
With roots tracing back to the 1994 real-time strategy game Warcraft®: Orcs & Humans®, Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft® is the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Set in the fantasy world of Azeroth, World of Warcraft provides a playground for millions around the world to embark on a lifetime of journeys full of magic, camaraderie, and adventure.
More than 100 million players have experienced Azeroth’s magic since the game’s release in 2004, and seven expansions have seen this immense world grow even larger. Over the past 15 years, World of Warcraft has established its iconic brand of fantasy firmly in the world’s imagination, uniting people from across the globe with a dizzying diversity of play experiences. You can seek out and do battle with legendary monsters, or you can roam the world to collect magical herbs. You experience the Azeroth’s wonders alone, or you can team up with friends or even complete strangers. Whether their goals are grand or modest, people from all ages and all walks of life can unite to accomplish them together.
World of Warcraft’s emblematic art style has helped to define this ever-expanding world over the last 15 years. From the days of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, Azeroth’s look and feel has been guided by the strong direction of talented artists who are skilled in traditional media and deeply passionate about the game universe they’re supporting. As a result, the world’s visual identity has remained strong, vibrant, and consistent, with an attention to detail and a layer of craftsmanship that’s evident in the digital imagery that drives the Warcraft games. Today’s World of Warcraft may be high fantasy, but the fundamentals of its art are very down-to-earth.
