World of Warcraft might be free with your movie ticket

To say that World of Warcraft has been a success would be one of the biggest understatements in gaming. As it stands, the only PC game to beat it in sales is Minecraft. So it's a safe bet that if you've got a strong interest in the game, you've probably tested the waters, or are possibly a recovering addict. And that makes Blizzard's latest move a strange one.

Later this year, the movie adaptation of the Warcraft universe will be making its way to the big screen. I'm personally a bit disappointed that they didn't use the same animation style that they use for their expansion trailers, but they probably know a lot more about what they're doing than I do. With the movie coming to theaters, one has to wonder just how many people will see the movie, who have never played World of Warcraft?

Blizzard is likely wondering the same thing, as they've recently sent out a survey to gamers, asking them what they thought of a possible movie tie-in promotion. Essentially, they're considering giving away a copy of the game with all current expansions, a month of game time, and a unique in-game item to all moviegoers. Check out the survey below:

Yes, they clearly spelled Lich incorrectly, which made many people believe that this wasn't a legitimate survey from Blizzard. The company has since confirmed that they did indeed send out the survey, and that the typo has been corrected in subsequent emails.

It's still little more than an idea that they're kicking around, but that's a lot of free accounts for people who already have one. Now if you're able to activate just the expansions that you're missing and collect your free game time and item, then I'd bet a lot more people would be interested.
