Huge Encrypted Cinematics on 8.2.5 PTR
Today's PTR build revealed that the
War Campaign will conclude in 8.2.5
, and to go along with the splash screen, Blizzard has added two encrypted cinematics that are extremely long.
As they are hidden through encryption, we don't know what they will contain. However, we can tell, based on their file size, that these are
cinematics--longer than what we've seen for past important story beats in Battle for Azeroth so far.
New Sylvanas Cinematics?
These encrypted cinematics are 3:18 and 6:18 minutes long respectively. In comparison, the Eternal Palace cinematic was 1:22 and Rastakhan's death was 2:00. We can only imagine what plot twists can be contained in a six-minute long cinematic. Will Saurfang die? Will Sylvanas reveal her plan? Will we all die and be dragged down to the Shadowlands?
It's safe to say that between the gigantic cinematics, decision to hide the War Campaign in the data, and
Sylvanas on the BlizzCon art
, that we're not going to have a simple ending when we finally confront Sylvanas.
Old Saurfang Cinematics?
Daugen has pointed out in the comments that the cinematics "Lost Honor" and "Old Soldier" have similar run-times to these two, so perhaps Blizzard is simply adding these cinematics into the game. This could be plausible, but the runtimes are still slightly different, plus the third cinematic "Safe Haven" would be omitted. We'd still like to think we're getting new cinematics! Even if we're not getting new cinematics, the inclusion of cinematics featuring Saurfang heavily implies that he'll be playing a pivotal role in the War Campaign.
