Legions and tyrants and brethren oh my! Initially announced at BlizzCon in November of 2013, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is set to release November 13th, a little less than a month away. The highly anticipated sequel to Mists of Pandaria will pick up where the series left off as Garrosh, former chieftain of the Warsong clan, escapes to the alternate universe of Draenor.
The game will feature a level cap of 100, (finally), and will include player-built, upgradable garrisons. As an added bonus, all character models released prior to the third expansion pack, Cataclysm, will be fully updated. Graphics and the like will certainly not be ignored in this next installment but don’t expect too drastic of a change; the series stays true to its roots by sticking to the character design methods WOW fans have come to love.
Now in the final stages of its beta, Warlords of Draenor has certainly kept Blizzard busy as updates continue to roll out in waves. Although the updates are tedious as players try to adapt to the controls and basic storyline, they are completely necessary. The fact that these updates are arriving with increased intensity is leaving fans a bit concerned about the final product and leave some a bit perturbed about the final release.Will the game be fully polished in time? Blizzard CEO and contributor Mike Morhaime seems to think so.
“The countdown to the arrival of one of the greatest threats in Warcraft history has begun. We can’t wait to send everyone through the Dark Portal this November.”
From the looks of the cinematic trailer, I’d have to agree!
Blizzard has also released a short miniseries, “Lords of War” to both update veteran players and prime rookies as they ready themselves for the release. World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor hits shelves at $49.99 for a standard edition copy and $69.99 for the digital deluxe edition. Should you find yourself lacking the loot, feel free to go for the standard edition which you may upgrade later for a reduced price.
