While World of Warcraft’s subscription numbers have dropped to 6.8 million players, Blizzard shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Blizzard announced that World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Warlords of Draenor, will launch on November 13.
The news was revealed at a world premiere event today in Los Angeles. During the event, the opening cinematic scene for Warlords of Draenor was shown that revealed some well-known characters from Warcraft lore, such as Garrosh Hellscream, and the formation of the Iron Horde that is bent on conquering everything in its path.
Warlords of Draenor will be WoW’s fifth expansion where players will fight on the world of Draenor to save the world of Azeroth. The expansion will send players back in time where they will fight with or against legendary heroes in Warcraft’s history such as Blackhand and Ner’zhul.
The expansion will also introduce updated player character models and animations and increase the level cap to 100. In addition, old and new players alike will be able to instantly boost one character to level 90 and skip the need to grind.
