World of Warcraft: Legion will be the next and sixth expansion for Blizzard’s juggernaut MMO, World of Warcraft, Blizzard has announced.
The expansion will focus on the Burning Legion’s return to Azeroth and will take players to the Broken Isles in order to drive the Legion back.
“The Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, and the demons of the Burning Legion pour into our world. Their full, terrifying might is fixed on summoning the Dark Titan to Azeroth—and they’ve already located the key to his return,” stated Blizzard.
“With the Alliance and Horde devastated, only you can take up Warcraft’s most legendary artifacts, scour the ancient Broken Isles for relics of the Titans, and challenge the Legion before Azeroth’s last hope dies. Steel yourself, champion. Extinction is imminent.”
World of Warcraft: Legion will increase the player level cap to 110, with the expansion allowing you to boost any character to level 100 straight away, allowing you to jump straight into the fight, whether you be a complete newbie to the MMO or a veteran wanting to play as another race or class. A new character class will also be added to the game, the Demon Hunter.
With regards to the new area, Broken Isles, Blizzard said, “Brave the epicenter of the demon invasion—the Broken Isles, a land rich with ancient wonders. Explore lush forests, colossal mountain ranges, and night elven cities older than human civilization.”
“But native dangers lurk here too: twisted satyrs, savage drogbar, and cursed Kvaldir prowl the Isles alongside the Legion’s marauding army. To overcome these threats, you will claim an Order Hall unique to your character class and lead your followers on a hunt for the Pillars of Creation—the secret to Azeroth’s salvation.”
