Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures released the first picture of 2016's World of Warcraft movie May 18.

The picture is of an orc named Orgrim. It looks a whole lot like an orc from World of Warcraft. So, well done, people of Industrial Light and Magic who are handling the effects.

Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the movie feels like it's been in the works for decades. There has so far been little word what it will entail or how the accomplished Jones will manage to squeeze 11 years of continual video gameplay into a story that will please it's millions and millions of paid subscribers. 

In actuality, Ogrim is played by Pacific Rim's Robert Kazinsky. Or this normal-shaped man here:

Let's call him courageous writer Shivam Bhatt stole some time at the 2016 Game Developer's Conference held in San Francisco to chat with Blizzard Co-Founder David Brevik during a Q&A about Diablo

Bhatt carpe'd that diem and confessed to Brevik that he pirated the game almost two decades ago, offering up some cash on the spot for his transgression. Not only did Bhatt pretty much get rewarded with the most surreal reaction possible--Brevik taking a pic with him:

Overwatch's latest comic "Reflections" went live today on the game's website. The comic is focused on the shifty pixie-like character, Tracer, and tells a pleasantly heartwarming holiday tale centered on several members from the game's cast.

But most exciting with regards to this comic is the official unveiling of Tracer's sexual orientation. See some shots of the comics below:

Tracer as depicted in the picture above, is seen kissing another woman who she appears to be living with. Emily is not part of the Overwatch team, and it is confirmed later on in the comic that she's dating Tracer when they attend Winston's holiday party together.
