Gamescom 2015: Next World of Warcraft Expansion Revealed

World of Warcraft’s next expansion will be Legion.

World of Warcraft Legion

In this dire new chapter of the Warcraft® saga, the demonic Burning Legion has returned, seeking to call forth their fallen leader—the dark titan Sargeras, Ravager of Worlds. As destruction rains across Azeroth, its heroes must seek salvation among the ruins of the Broken Isles, doomed center of ancient night elf civilization and birthplace of myths dating back to the world’s creation. In the face of hopeless odds, they must learn to master mighty Artifacts—legendary weapons that hold the potential to bring down the corrupted armies of the Legion—and strike an infernal pact with the dread Demon Hunters of the Illidari . . . accursed followers of the infamous Illidan the Betrayer.

World of Warcraft: Legion takes players back to the present time line to a new continent known as the Broken Isles where we see the biggest Burning Legion invasion to date which we will need the Pillars of Creation themselves to put a stop to. But gathering Titan relics in an ancient and forgotten land will not be easy and to do so, the Horde and Alliance will need weapons of great power. To be more specific, Artifact Weapons specific to your class and spec.

Legion will see players adventure to level 110 through the Broken Isles where they will encounter the Burning Legion, of course, the Tomb of Sargeras, the Emerald Nightmare, the Vrykuul and so much more.

The expansion will begin on the Broken Shore, similar to how Warlords of Draenor began with the Assault on the Dark Portal, where the world will be “set on fire”.

With Class Orders a natural progression from garrisons which aim to compliment your gameplay and get you out into the world not act as a hub, the new Hero class Demon Hunters (yes, the class that every fake expansion leak ever has claimed are coming.. Are actually coming) which, like Death Knights, will start at a later level with a unique starting experience, all new dungeons and raids, and a brand new honor system which grants you abilities as you level through the honor tree, World of Warcraft: Legion brings a lot of things to the table that players have been clamoring for for years.

To top it all off, Beta for Legion will begin later this year which you can of course sign up for now. And there will be another live stream on Sunday which will feature a Q&A with the devs.
