Voting is now open to determine which bike will become a free, faction-specific in-game World of Warcraft mount.
Blizzard's weekly web series Azeroth Choppers has been building up to the reveal in today's episode. The teams at Paul Jr Designs have completed the two motorcycles, one Alliance and one Horde. One of the World of Warcraft-themed motorcycles will become an in-game mount. To decide the winning bike, Blizzard is calling on the World of Warcraft community to vote for the best motorcycle. Polls are now open, and voting ends June 2 at noon PST. The winner will be revealed in the eighth and final episode of the web series, which will air on June 5.
The first six episodes showed the design, fabrication, paint, and assembly of the bikes. Sam Didier, Art Director at Blizzard, headed the Horde team, while Chris Metzen, Blizzard Entertainment's Senior Vice President of Story and Franchise Development, lead the Alliance team. Custom motorcycle experts from Paul Jr. Designs fabricated and assembled the bikes. Paul Jr. Designs is the motorcycle design company behind the television series American Chopper.
The winning bike will be reproduced as an in-game mount for World of Warcraft. The mount will be faction-specific and available free to all players in that faction. Now that the bikes are finished, I have to say I'm having a hard time deciding which is the better bike. What do you think? Do you prefer the sleek and noble Alliance bike, or the rough and rugged Horde chopper?
