The Warlords of Draenor Announced

Blizzard has now officially confirmed that the next expansion for World of Warcraft will be "The Warlords of Draenor".

It will add a new continent, Draenor, which will most likely be the pre-shattered Outland. This will be the fifth expansion for WoW, and will feature lots of new things, including graphical reworks for old races, taking control and upgrading your own stronghold and instantly boosting for level 90. 

  • Explore a Savage World: Explore the hostile world of Draenor, home of the orc and draenei races, as it once existed, and adventure in all-new zones alongside characters central to Warcraft history.
  • Build Your Garrison: Construct, command, and expand your own customizable stronghold on Draenor, and gather NPC followers to collect resources and embark on missions on your orders.
  • Instantly Upgrade to Level 90: Boost one character of your choosing to be ready to adventure on Draenor, making it easier than ever to enjoy the latest content alongside your friends.
  • New Player Character Art: Character models and animations for many of World of Warcraft’s existing playable races are being fully revamped in keeping with the game’s epic style.
  • Adventure to Level 100: Reach new heights of power and unlock bonuses to further enhance your abilities on your way to the new level cap of 100.
  • …And More: Take on a wide array of Dungeons, Raids, Scenarios, Battlegrounds, Challenge Modes, and more—no matter what kind of content you enjoy, new adventures await.
With the last expansion having mostly negative response from the players, Warlords of Draenor will have a decisive role in the future of World of Warcraft. Time will tell if Blizzard plays their cards well...
