Over the years, the Warcraft series has experienced many different iterations since its inception as a real-time strategy game back in 1994.

Ten years later, video game developer Blizzard would shift the franchise to a multiplayer online RPG format with World of Warcraft — and since then, it has extended the fantasy universe with six expansion packs. The latest, Battle for Azeroth, was announced last week at BlizzCon 2017, and is expected to have a 2018 release. In the meantime, though, Blizzard decided to get fans extra hyped by displaying an epic diorama that showcases the anticipated Battle for Lordaeron.

Consisting of 1,300 square feet and over 10,000 characters, Blizzard's feat wound up setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest video game diorama ever. Each figure within the diorama was a unique 3D-printed miniature based on character models played by BlizzCon participants.

The Battle for Lordaeron was also featured in the new cinematic trailer for Battle of Azeroth, and gives fans the opportunity to envision the intense engagement that kicks off the expansion pack. You can check out the trailer below:
