Yeah. You read that right. Footage showing a first look at World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is going to be shown pubilicly on a very strange venue: Sunday Night Football.
Apparently, you’ll be able to get a sneak peak at the game during the Dallas vs Minnesota game. If you want to see some WoW action, you’re going to want to watch the game. It’s a pretty good deal, but you could probably find the clip on Youtube an hour later…
But in all seriousness, it seems like a strange advertising decision on the team responsible for the game to market the game primarily to football fans, and not just gamers, necessarily. While many football fans won’t care about the game at all, there are quite a few who will, so perhaps the decision will pay off in the long run.
And I always knew that the NFL and WoW were pretty much the same thing 🙂
