World Of Warcraft: Legion Release Date Revealed

Five months ago now Blizzard started taking pre-orders for the sixth World Of Warcraft expansion, Legion. The expansion pack now has a confirmed release date, with it set to release on August 30th.

The sixth expansion will follow on from the fifth expansion, Warlords of Draenor, with Blizzard stating that “all hellfire is about to break loose”. With the new continent, the Broken Isles, and a new class, the Demon Hunter class, players will be spoilt for choice as they wield new artifacts and encounter demon hunters, the disciples of Illidan Stormrage, a popular character in the Warcraft series.

If you can’t wait to join the action, anyone who pre-orders the expansion gets a single level 100 boost, so any new characters (or old ones) can join in on the Broken Isles action the second the game releases, while pre-orders will also get access to the Demon Hunter class before the expansion even releases!

With subscriptions for the online MMORPG falling at a staggering rate, could the new expansion be what the game needs to bring new life to the franchise or could the new movie bring in fans both old and new to the series in order to save the world?

Are you a fan of the game? Are you someone who used to play the game? Could this expansion interest you into giving the game a new go or are you more interested in the patch that Warcraft 3 will soon receive?

Driver Blames Demon in His Uber App for Killing Spree

An Uber driver, charged with the murder of six people, and wounding of two others on 20th February, has claimed that he was forced to commit the crimes by a “devil figure” in his Uber app, which was controlling his “mind and body.” In a series of documents released by the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Office (obtained courtesy of the Detroit Free Press), Jason Dalton, a 45-year-old former Uber driver from Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, told police after his arrest that a symbol resembling the head of a demon popped up on his app – which he used to conduct his business as an Uber driver – and “that’s when the problems started.”

“I asked Dalton what made him get his gun tonight and he said the Uber app made him,” the police report reads. “Dalton described the devil figure as a horned cow head or something like that and then it would give you an assignment and it would literally take over your whole body.”

Dalton claimed that when his Uber app turned from “red to black that is when he started having problems.” When the app returned to red, he “got his presence back.”

According to the accused’s wife, Carole Dalton, though, tells a different story. According to her, Dalton had been in an argument with a rival driver, who had supposedly shot at him. “[H]e was nearly run off the road last week by this same vehicle, which he believed was owned by an angry taxi driver, upset that Jason was now driving for Uber and taking away his business,” she told investigators.

 

Diablo 2 Gets A Patch 16 Years After Release

Blizzard has many game series in their name, with the Warcraft game series soon to get its own movie. Another popular series from the company is the Diablo series, featuring angels and demons fighting it out for years and years now. Now 16 years after its original release, and a sequel, Diablo 2 gets a patch.

Diablo 2 last received a patch back in 2011, but now five years later the game gets its next update. First released in 2000, those who want to sit back and enjoy the classic game will now find it easier to play on modern systems.

The patch addresses several things but the major points are the ability to play the game on windows 7, 8 and even 10 without the need for “XP mode”. If you are more of an OSX user, the game should now also work on your system.

If you still need another reason to play it, the game now features enhanced cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. In the original post, the author makes it clear that this is but the first step and that “it does not end there”.

Given the graphics update for Diablo III and now this, could the Diablo series be seeing new life soon? If you feel like trying out the game, check out the Blizzard store, where both Diablo 2 and the Lord Of Destruction expansion are only $9.99 each (£7).
