Since 1994 , Blizzard Entertainment entertains us with fabulous games from the Warcraft series on a regular basis. It all began with "Warcraft: Orcs & Humans" where the humans of Azeroth had to defend themselves against invading hordes of Orcs to dodge slavery. The game was so successful within the gamers' community that the sequel "Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness" followed only one year later. The third part was released only in 2002. Up to that point, all the titles had been real-time strategy games, but in 2004, Blizzard Entertainment dared to push forward into new territories and issued a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) - or THE definite MMORPG, to be precise, namely World of Warcraft. Since its release, the game has drawn together a gigantic community of fans and won countless awards, still holding the record of being the most popular multiplayer online role game since 2009. Besides the computer worlds, there are numerous books with information on the Warcraft universe, about certain events, heroes and interrelations relating to the series. Then, there are the comics, art books and short stories, not to mention at least one visitor at conventions with a whole-body WoW costume. This is likely to expand into movie and TV series conventions now, because this year "Warcraft: The Beginning" will hit the cinemas. As usual, you can get your fan merch here. In our EMP Online Shop, you find the World of Warcraft Hoodie Jacket Monk, a WoW Monopoly game and The Ultimate WoW Compendium - a must for all fans of the series. Game on!
