WORLD of Warcraft is getting a brand new expansion TODAY – but it remains a mystery for now.
The iconic game has been around for almost two decades and its next big chapter is just around the corner.
New WoW expansion – what you need to know
World of Warcraft was launched in 2004 and was an instant hit.
The legendary MMORPG remains one of the greatest games in the world.
Part of this success is due to the fact that expansion packs are released about every two years.
We have had eight so farand a ninth is due out sometime in 2022.
This next expansion marks World of Warcraft’s 10.0 update and will likely wrap up 20 years after the original game’s launch – so expectations are high.
Here’s how to watch the reveal of the new World of Warcraft expansion
The new World of Warcraft expansion will be unveiled via a YouTube live stream.
Fans will tune in on Tuesday, April 19th for the news.
To watch, you must log in at 9am in LA, 12pm in New York, or 5pm in London.
The expansion will be published on the official World of Warcraft YouTube channel here.
WoW kite flight? What to expect from the new World of Warcraft expansion
Activision Blizzard is understandably reticent about the new expansion.
In its YouTube description, the company writes, “Join us and see what the future holds for World of Warcraft.”
So what can we expect?
The source code recently revealed on the official Warcraft website was related to an expansion pack called Dragonflight.
As such, we expect the expansion to focus on dragons, including longtime dragon character Alexstrasza.
This expansion pack aims to focus on a group of islands known as the Dragon Islands.
It’s Alexstrasza’s obvious home and not an entirely new idea.
Blizzard originally intended the Dragon Isles to be a level 65-70 raid in early builds of World of Warcraft.
Game files related to the zone were added in the World of Warcraft beta, but the idea was ultimately shelved.
The islands were intended to house Temples of the Old God, and a test zone called Designer Island was added to the beta as a perk.
Additionally, these islands appeared on the in-game world map (without labels) before they were removed Wrath of the Lich King.
Other than a brief mention in Battle for Azeroth, we haven’t heard anything about the Dragon Isles in-game.
It is widely speculated that Blizzard will add dragons as a playable race.
And posts on the popular WoW forum MMO Champion have claimed that a new class called Evoker will be added.
We won’t know anything for sure until Blizzard announces it.
Luckily that’s very soon.
