WoW: Dragonflight Gets Spectacular Launch Cinematic

World of Warcraft will soon let players check out a new race and class, and for now the developers have graced us with a beautiful cinematic trailer of the Dragonflight expansion.

We already had the first trailer and animations introducing the plot, now it's time for the cinematic trailer for the World of Warcraft: Dragonflight expansion. The video, titled "Take to the Skies," was shown during a recent broadcast and published by Blizzard Entertainment on YouTube. You can watch it below.

As you can easily guess, the footage focuses on the dragons that inhabit the Dragon Isles, including a new (old?) enemy that players will face in the upcoming expansion, and which we could see in the last chapter of Dragonflight Legacies.

Of course, there was also a new race, the Dracthyrs, and the former Dragon aspects of Azeroth. All in first-rate audiovisuals, which we have been become accustomed to by previous cinematics from World of Warcraft prepared by Blizzard.

WoW: Dragonflight will be released on November 29. Players will be able to get acquainted with the new race and class and go through the Dracthyrs' starting location (Forbidden Reach) quite a bit earlier as part of the so-called second phase of the "prepatch" for the expansion. In Europe, it will begin tomorrow after the end of the technical break on the servers.

Some people have already checked the dragon people a few days ago, because of a bug on the Public Test Server of WoW - for a few hours you could create your own Dracthyr (via Wowhead).
