warlords of draenor

Because World of Warcraft refuses to be anything other than an eternally popular game and Blizzard must keep up with the demands of their fans, they’ve put together yet another expansion to further huge-ify the already gigantic MMO.  This time around, it’s Warlords of Draenor.  Check out some of the details below.

In the words of Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime:

“‘Warlords of Draenor’ gives players a chance to take a commanding role in one of the Warcraft series’ most crucial conflicts. This expansion also includes features that make it easy for anyone to jump right into the action, whether they’ve played WoW at some point in the past or are just setting foot in Azeroth for the first time.”

I’m not much of a Warcraft player so I couldn’t say one way or the other what Draenor is, but it looks like new players and old alike will be getting the chance to instantly make a character level 90 in order to play in the expansion.  The Horde and the Alliance will jump into Draenor, set up a defensible position, recruit NPC allies and do all the other Warcraft stuff that you’re used to.

They’re also beefing up the graphics of the game with some new character models and animations, lifting the level cap to 100, plus adding plenty of new dungeons, raids and all that good stuff to keep you playing another year of your life away.

Unfortunately, no release date has been set yet, but you can expect a bunch more information to be coming out during Blizzcon.  We’ll try to keep you informed.
