Today at BlizzCon 2013 in Anaheim, Blizzard officially confirmed that yes, there is a new expansion set for World of Warcraft on the way, and yes, it will be Warlords of Draenor. Chief Creative Officer Chris Metzen took the stage for a typically rambling presentation that acknowledged many current WoW gamers have never dabbled in Warcraft history, and are less-familiar with the stories of Orcs and Humans. That is about to change.
It looks very much like a return to form, a more hardcore expansion than the quiet, cuddly Pandaren we met last time – this is going to be the Alliance’s finest hour, with more than enough goodies for the Horde as well.
We don’t know m/any more details than, basically, “It’s happening,” but there is a panel event kicking off in half an hour, titled “World of Warcraft: What’s Next”, so we’re assuming there’s plenty more on the way. Stay tuned!
