Robert Kazinsky will champion the Horde cause as the Orc named Ogrim, who is “Destined to wield Doomhammer and be the right hand of Durotan”. Toby Kebbell will play Durotan himself, while Clancy Brown will play the feared Orc known as Blackhand “The Destroyer” among other things. The full casting list is detailed in Slash Film.

Also speaking of Warcraft, Blizzard has officially released online the hour-long special called “World of Warcraft: Looking for Group Documentary” which they showed first at Blizzcon this year. The video looks back at the 10 year history of the series, as well as its creators and the community that has helped make it one of the most popular video game franchises of all time.

Then comes one of the newest IPs from the company that’s a class-based multiplayer first-person shooter and looks like a Pixar movie brought to gaming. Say hello to “Overwatch“, which is coming in Beta phase on early 2015.

And finally, the next entry in the long-running Starcraft franchise is a new standalone expansion for Starcraft II, and here’s a new epic trailer to tease it.

Give it up for more Real Time Strategy related adventure as “Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void” prepares for a more Protoss centered campaign, along with additional units and changes for the game when it is released in the near future.
