World of Warcraft. For over ten years Blizzard’s behemoth has occupied the throne as king of the MMOs. With over 10 billion dollars in revenue, 100 million created accounts, more than 6 million years cumulative playtime, countless pieces of merchandise, a highpoint of 12 million monthly subscribers, and five expansions, there’s never been any game that can compare to WoW.
The game’s sixth expansion, Legion, was recently announced to the public. The official release date is still unknown, although most people suspect it will officially come out sometime in the middle of next year. If you can’t wait that long then head over to battle.net and sign up for the beta, which will be launching later this year.
Here we have gathered 8 of the coolest new things we know about Legion so far. Some of the better-known ones have been left out, such the level cap going up to 110 and the invasion storyline, in favor of some of the lesser known features and game mechanics.
WoW may have been losing subscribers recently, but could Legion see the game return to its former glories? We will have to wait and see.
