World of Warcraft: Legion hype is real!

So to those of you who somehow may not already know, Legion, WoW’s upcoming expansion is getting a lot hype! there are multiple reason why this is, but this post will only cover a few such as:

  1. The Warcraft movie is now only 4 days away from it’s release! Now only will the movie introduce World of Warcraft to a plethora of people who know nothing about it, it is also going to evoke feelings from the games overall player-base. This of course include old, current and new players. So whether someone hasn’t played in a few years or is a active subscriber, people who watch the movie, are going to be very inclined to play the game.
  2. Blizzard really knows how to capture a audience, because along with the movies’s release they are also going to be giving out free game time to everyone who buys a ticket!
  3. Twitch is helping with the hype by having WoW make twitch history by coming out with custom badges on the twitch platform! Now, while these badges are only temporary this is a huge publicity step for Blizzard. Before these WoW badges came out, the only other badges anyone could have were for twitch turbo and if you were a mod or up for the streaming site.

Here is the most promotion trailer for Warcraft showcasing the free game time that comes with buying a ticket:

World of Warcraft announces new expansion: Legion!

Yesterday in the morning at Gamescon, was the big announcement of the new World of Warcraft expansion: Legion!  Thousands of others and myself sat and watched as they revealed this beautiful masterpiece. The expansion is to be based on the Burning Legion coming and invading Azeroth! Us as it hero’s (whether you be Alliance or smelly Horde) have to try and defend off this unyielding attack on our home-world. There have even been hints that the heros of Azeroth might not win in this expansion, opening up the possibility for a very interesting twist! I don’t know about you, but Legion is (actually) looking to be the best wow expansion yet and I am most excited for  the revamped Honor system!

Here are the features in Legion:

  • New continent: The Broken Isles
  • New class: Demon Hunter
  • Artifacts: customizable weapons that grow in power as you do
  • Class-specific Order Halls and followers
  • All New Dungeons and Raids
  • New World Bosses
  • Level cap raised to 110
  • Revamped PvP progression system
  • Improved transmogrification system
