The latest expansion to Blizzard’s long-running MMORPG World of Warcraft will be available August 30th!
World of Warcraft: Legion is the sixth expansion for WoW, and following the events of Warlords of Draenor, players can now look forward to more adventures in the Broken Isles, master powerful Artifact weapons or become a Demon Hunter of the Illidari to face the demonic invaders of the Burning Legion.
[blockquote cite=”Mike Morhaime, Blizzard CEO”]“Legion opens a dark and thrilling new chapter in one of the Warcraft series’ greatest conflicts, and things will never be the same for some of Azeroth’s most iconic heroes and villains”[/blockquote]
Both Gul’dan, betrayer of the orcs and twisted servant of the Burning Legion, and Illidan Stormrage, whom players faced and supposedly struck down in The Burning Crusade, are back. As mentioned, a new melee hero class, the Demon Hunter, will be available, and Artifact weapons as well, which are class-specific weapons that have unlockable abilities and traits.
New players joining the fray will also have the chance to boost to Level 100 if they pre-purchase Legion, so nobody has to feel left out if they are new to the series!
A new PvP Honor system will also be in place as you can now “fight for fame, glory, and a range of new PvP-specific powers as you face the opposing faction in Arenas and Battlegrounds.”
A new Class Hall will also make its debut, where you can gather with fellow class members and unite followers of your order, even iconic legends from Warcraft lore, and carry out missions you choose.
Digital Standard Editions and Digital Deluxe Editions are both available, so pre-purchase your copy today at www.wowlegion.com!
