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?
