Key Takeaways:

  • Tarisland is set to launch on June 21, 2024, for PC and mobile platforms (iOS and Android).
  • The game’s main antagonist, the Blight Dragon, bears a striking resemblance to WoW’s Deathwing, earning it the nickname “Discount Deathwing” among fans.
  • Despite criticism, Tarisland has received praise for many game aspects.

Recently, Tarisland dropped a trailer announcing its launch date slated for June 21, 2024, across PC and mobile platforms (iOS and Android). The spotlight of the video falls upon the Blight Dragon, Tarisland’s ultimate antagonist. However, veteran WoW players can’t help but feel like they’re watching a new trailer for Cataclysm Classic from Walmart.

Deathwing Is Coming to Tarisland? No, It’s The Blight Dragon

The resemblances are uncanny. From the designs, some scenes, and the raspy, gravelly voice to the color scheme, and even the echoing lines reminiscent of Deathwing. It seems as if the fallen Earth-Warder of WoW has found a new side gig in Tarisland. But, we’ll leave the verdict to you.

Here’s Tarisland’s latest trailer:

And here’s the trailer of WoW Cataclysm:

This isn’t the first time Tarisland’s Blight Dragon has drawn comparisons to Deathwing. Fans have dubbed Tarisland’s first dragon “Discount Deathwing” and likened the trailer to “Cataclysm Classic at home.” Tarisland’s trailer, released just a little more than a week after the launch of Cataclysm Classic, only adds fuel to the fire.

Nevertheless, this might be a deliberate marketing strategy from the developers of Tarisland. Perhaps it’s their tactic to capitalize on the Cataclysm buzz and boost players’ awareness of their own game. We can’t know for sure. And whether this strategy will pay off remains to be seen. But it’s also important to note that despite criticism, many players actually find Tarisland enjoyable.

Players Actually Enjoy Playing Tarisland

After the game’s closed betas, Tarisland has garnered praise for various aspects:

And to add, the legendary composer Russell Brower, known for his work on WoW, Diablo, StarCraft, and Hearthstone, is now contributing his talents to Tarisland. If you’re wondering about his masterpieces, they include “Invincible” from WotLK and the soundtracks for “Batman: The Animated Series” (1992).

There’s actually a lot to look forward to in Tarisland once you get past its many WoW lookalike aspects. So, are you willing to give Tarisland a chance, or do you believe it’s just another WoW Cataclysm that isn’t worth your time? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
