Blizzard Releases New World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Short Story, Filling Out Expansion’s Lore

Heads up, we’ll be discussing the new World of Warcraft: Shadowlands short story, “We Ride Forth,” here! If you haven’t read it yet, or if you want to avoid spoilers, turn away!

Blizzard recently released a new short story helping to set the tone and lore for the upcoming World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion! This story takes place just before the original cinematic in which we see Sylvanas challenge Bolvar Fordragon for the Helm of Domination and break open the veil to the Shadowlands.

The story is told from the point of view from the Four Horsemen – Sally Whitemane, General Nazgrim, Thoras Trollbane, and Highlord Darion Mograine. In the service of Lich King Bolvar Fordragon, Mograine (easily) convinces the Horsemen to help him kill Fordragon.

This isn’t quite betrayal, but rather a fulfilling of a promise. Mograine fears that, due to some strange behaviors from Fordragon, he’s beginning to lose his will to the Helm of Domination and become the same monster that Arthas Menethil became in the events of Wrath of the Lich King.

The story hops between the point of views of several characters, jumping between the recent past and the present as the Four Horsemen move the stronghold of Acherus to Icecrown in order to kill Fordragon. Throughout, we’re given glimpses into the thoughts and motivations of each of the Horsemen.

All in all, the story provides a wonderful look into the morality of the Ebon Blade and the Scourge, as well as how the concept of free will is dealt with when one’s mind can be immediately taken over by another being with little to no resistance.

Best of all, we also see a few threads get pulled together that those that have kept up with stories and cinematics may recognize. With the Four Horsemen interacting, we can see how these individuals handled their new lives as Death Knights and what challenges it brought.

The story ends at the same place that the announcing cinematic does, but from the point of view of the Horsemen aboard Acherus. We’re given the sight of the sky splitting open as Sylvanas breaks the Helm of Domination and see why Whitemane and Nazgrim were the ones carrying Fordragon to safety.

It’s a riveting look into a side that we weren’t able to see through gameplay, providing a glance into how the Ebon Blade has interacted and what the rule of Bolvar Fordragon as the Lich King has surmounted to. It’s also wonderful to see Fordragon finally getting some screen time.

Speaking Simulator Is Officially Available On The PS4

If you haven’t heard of Speaking Simulator, you’re really missing out. It has an interesting take on the simulation genre. Normally with these titles, it’s all about realism and getting details as close to reality as possible. That’s definitely not the vibe that comes across in Speaking Simulator.

The developer instead injected a lot of humor in this game, providing hilarious sequences for players replicating human speech as an AI — who’s trying to not come off as anything but authentic.

Since launch, it has been available on PC and the Nintendo Switch. Now it has come to the PS4 according to a recent announcement trailer. This is great news because it means a new crop of gamers will get to see if they have what it takes to master the complexities of human conversation.

The premise of the game is basically an AI gone rogue trying to take over the world by disguising himself as a real human. Easier said than done. Players have to manipulate the faux human’s tongue in different directions to produce the right words.

You’ll make your way through 10 different social scenarios, where you must try to produce speech and convince those you’re talking to that you’re definitely not a robot. Oh, and if you struggle too much, there is a real possibility of your head exploding.

It’s a bizarre, yet oddly satisfying simulator that the community has really gotten behind since it first debuted. 10 social situations may not seem like a lot, but there is a ton of variety in how your facial expressions can fail. You’ll thus probably want to head back into the same scenario to see how things can be different.

And if you get really good in Speaking Simulator, you just might be able to put a couple of sentences together. At the very least, you’ll produce some terrifying facial expressions that only a robot could produce.

As more gamers get accustomed to this little gem that is now available on the PS4, it could gain some momentum and catch on like it first did at the beginning of its launch. It won’t blow your hair back in the authenticity department, but it’s not supposed to.

Instead, you can just have fun and see what tricks you can pull off with your character’s tongue and mouth. You’d be hard-pressed to find a game more creepy and yet addicting to play. Good luck!
