For The Horde! New World of Warcraft Expansion, Warlords Of Draenor Announced
Blizzard have announced at it’s BlizzCon 2013 event we can expect a fifth expansion to it’s MMORPG World of Warcraft series titled Warlords of Draenor.
The game features a new area to explore (Draenor), consisting of savage jungles as well as battle-scarred plains. In this new zone players will find themselves pitted against mystical Draenei champions and mighty Orc clans.
To help new and returning players answer the call to arms on Draenor, the expansion will enable anyone to instantly boost one character to level 90 (including a newly created character), quickly getting them up to speed and ready to enjoy the latest content.
To establish a foothold on Draenor once you arrive players for the first time will be able to construct their own Garrison, an expandable, customizable stronghold that will serve as each player’s personal base of operations throughout the course of the expansion. As the Garrison grows, players will be able to recruit NPC allies and followers to take up residence, gathering resources and embarking on missions on the player’s orders.
Warlords of Draenor will introduce fully revamped player character models and animations for many of World of Warcraft’s existing playable races, bringing the orcs, humans, and several other longtime residents of Azeroth up to the visual standards of newer races while still maintaining their iconic style and identity.
Along with these new features, players will get access to a host of new content on their way to the new level cap of 100, including new Zones, Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios, Battlegrounds, and more. Warlords of Draenor will also introduce questing improvements designed to encourage exploration and add unpredictability to players’ ongoing adventures.
