New Warcraft Movie Trailer Lets You Check Out Azeroth in VR

A new Warcraft trailer is out, and it gives you a 360-degree view of Azeroth’s Stormwind region.

Built for Google’s cheap VR headset for mobile phones, Cardboard, the trailer lets you look up, down, and around from the back of a gryphon, a creature used for transport in Warcraft games. Even if you don’t own Cardboard, though, you can still watch the trailer. It utilizes a phone’s accelerometer to let you change the view by moving the phone through space.

It’s a short trailer, around a minute long, and comes in at around 400 MB. But it’s really cool to be able to soar above Stormwind City and look down at people going about their lives, or gaze out at the mountains in the distance.

The trailer is available through studio Legendary Pictures‘ mobile app on iOS and Android devices. The studio also put out VR trailers for its upcoming movie Crimson Peak, and for 2013’s Pacific Rim.

Warcraft will hit theaters on June 16, 2016, and it features Clancy Brown as Blackhand and Dominic Cooper as King Llane. You can read more about the movie’s cast here. Today, the film’s director said that the movie is nearly finished, and that he might possibly make a trilogy of Warcraft movies.
