Orcs and humans team up in Warcraft's newest trailer

But not before they throw down

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Update: NBC Universal had the trailer taken down from YouTube. Sorry about that.

Update: Hooray, it's back.

A new trailer for Warcraft gives more attention to the story of a partnership between orcs and humans against some unseen, common menace.

The two sides still duke it out, though —” watch out for Durotan's roundhouse left — before coming to a consensus that the ass which must really be kicked is someone else's. The orc baby in that Moses scene is Thrall, the main character in the orc campaign of Warcraft 3, and later the orcs' faction leader for much of World of Warcraft.

This is the "international trailer" for the film, so maybe that's why the title card reads Warcraft: The Beginning. In North America, it's just called Warcraft, and it premieres June 10. Duncan Jones co-wrote the screenplay and directs, and Travis Fimmel stars as Anduin Lothar, the human male protagonist.

The next level of puzzles.
