World of Warcraft's next expansion adds voice chat

World of Warcraft's next expansion adds voice chat

This was a reference to "vanilla" WoW servers, which players have logged in to behind Blizzard's official back to play earlier, pre-expansion versions of WoW.

Not much info was given other than it's now in the works and won't be as easy as turning on a few servers.

In a social game like World of Warcraft, players are always looking to chat in one way or another.

During the World of Warcraft "What's Next" panel at BlizzCon, game director Ion Hazzikostas announced that level scaling-which was introduced as part of Legion and changes the stats/difficulty of enemies in zones based on your current level-will soon be expanded across the entire game. If you saw it in person, it'd come as no surprise to see Blizzard awarded with the Guinness World Record for the largest videogame diorama. Unlike previous expansions where the two groups teamed up against a greater evil such as The Lich King or the Burning Legion, this expansion's story goes back to basics and reopens old wounds between Humans (and Night Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, and Worgen) and Orcs (and Tauren, Goblins, Trolls, and Blood Elves). As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause.

This led to the Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy dissolving the regional parliament and calling a snap election for December. The jailing of the former ministers caused an uproar in Catalonia, where pro-independence protesters filled the streets.

Players will be encouraged to explore two new kingdoms with Battle For Azeroth, taking their adventure to Zandalar and Kul Tiras.

As would be expected of any new World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth features new lands, new features, and a new level cap. On these new continents, players will recruit new "allied races" to bolster the ranks of their faction. The expansion also adds new race alternatives for each faction, which can only be unlocked through quests.

Charge Into the Warfronts: Fight on the battlefields of a large-scale, 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim a key strategic location. Imbue the Heart of Azeroth-a legendary neck piece entrusted to each hero by Magni Bronzebeard-with Azerite to customise your armour with new powers and traits.

Now there is no word as to when World of Warcraft Classic is set to release, and Blizzard has yet to share any details beyond the short cinematic trailer, but this does mean that players won't have to put up with the drama that comes with unofficial servers.
