Well, that just happened. A World of Warcraft and American Chopper collaboration isn’t exactly the kind of thing you’d expect to hear about on a daily basis. To say that the announcement surprised pretty much everyone would be putting it mildly.
Azeroth Choppers is an upcoming webseries that has two teams of bike experts competing to see which one of them can create the best custom designed chopper inspired by the two World of Warcraft factions. The teams are hand-picked by American Choppers star Paul Jr. himself and will be fighting in a head-to-head match-up in order to win the most player votes. The winning team will have their design be made into a faction specific mount that will be available for free only to Horde or Alliance players, depending on who wins.
Aside from the chopper building teams, Blizzard also has their own two teams consisting of:
Sam Didier – Art Director for Blizzard Entertainment
Gary Platner – Lead Environment Artist for World of Warcraft
Jason Hutchins – Senior Game Producer
Chris Metzen – Senior Vice President of Creative Development for Blizzard Entertainment
Terran Gregory – Associate Project Director
Monte Krol – Lead Software Engineer
The series will be kicking off next week with the first episode scheduled for Thursday, the 17th of April and will feature a total of eight episodes according to Blizzard’s website. For more information check out the original post on Battle.net.
