Seasons of War is the cinematic intro for World of Warcraft.

Cinematic

Transcript

It begins with an animated map of Azeroth, highlighting the Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, and the Maelstrom while a female narrator briefly explains the recent history of the world following the events of the Battle for Mount Hyjal.

Four years have passed since the mortal races banded together and stood united against the might of the Burning Legion. Though Azeroth was saved, the tenuous pact between the Horde and the Alliance has all but evaporated. The drums of war thunder once again. Several establishing shots are then shown, introducing several of the game's playable races and classes: a dwarf hunter, a night elf druid, a Forsaken warlock, a tauren shaman, an orc warrior, and a human mage. It then transitions into a series of sequences showing the various characters doing battle against each other, culminating with the tauren smashing a totem into the camera and the game's logo appearing.

Music

The song "Seasons of War" was featured as the seventh track on the World of Warcraft Soundtrack, and was composed by Jason Hayes.

Lyrics

Promi ter re sa luta
Reco a gresco ba tu e re
For meteno ven tusacredo
Fendere be la ri
Poli ceriona volare

Dimi kareche entu maredo
Beligerate ficu tanima
Dimi karache entu maredo
Beligerate ficu tanima

Oh oh oh oh mera
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ah

San guiva ni me de
Mi fen de re
Fu ga ve nu ma
Po li ce re da tana

Potesta confico
Malete venefico
Potesta facina
Malete peresona
Batura
