Take a whirlwind tour of Warlords of Draenor

Warlords of Draenor’s cinematic trailer was certainly a treat for hungry eyes, but with that out of the way, it’s time to focus on all the sort of stuff you’ll be able to get up to come November. 

Blizzard’s put together a whirlwind tour of Draenor, with stops at each region, dungeon and raid. It looks like there’s going to be no dearth of things to do once you step through the Dark Portal again.

Warlords of Draenor cinematic revealed; expansion launches on November 13th

Blizzard have debuted their gritty cinematic for the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion: Warlords of Draenor. The cinematic demonstrated just how far Garrosh is willing to go to succeed in his revenge against all of Azeroth - changing the very destiny of some of Warcrafts most iconic characters.

The expansion will launch on November 13th, just a few days before Blizzard’s annual Blizzcon.

World of Warcraft's 10 year anniversary will be filled with corgis and violence

World of Warcraft's 10 year anniversary will be filled with corgis and violence

Come November, World of Warcraft will be 10 years old. Crikey. I’m suddenly reminded of how fleeting time is, and of my own slow march towards death. Thankfully Blizzard is here to cheer me up, and you, if you’re feeling gloomy. 

They’re using throwing nostalgia around like currency, celebrating the game’s past as it moves towards the fifth expansion.

Blizzard previews Warlords of Draenor's Nagrand: home of the Warsong Outriders

Blizzard previews Warlords of Draenor's Nagrand: home of the Warsong Outriders

I did love to fly around Nagrand in World of Warcraft’s first expansion, Burning Crusade. And still, when I’m levelling a new alt, I’ll often take them there. And it was nice to hang around in the Outlands, on occasion, and not feel like I was watching the end of days. 

With Warlords of Draenor, we get to go back to Nagrand, back when it was home to the Warsong clan, led by Grommash Hellscream. Quite a bit of history there. Senior game designer Eric Maloof and associate game designer Kurt Sparkuhl have spilled the beans on the old new zone in a preview of the area, and it’s looking lovely.

Slap your eyes on Warlords of Draenor's cinematic trailer on August 14th; launch date reveal planned, too

I suppose when you’ve got a customer base as large as Blizzard and World of Warcraft’s, then you don’t just announce the launch date for an expansion in a press release. No, you make an event out of it.

On August 14th, at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, Blizzard will be premiering the Warlords of Draenor cinematic trailer and revealing the launch date for the fifth expansion. I confess that I’m more excited about the trailer - a rarity - because WoW cinematics are, as a rule, a treat.

World of Warcraft's Alliance is getting a chopper after all

World of Warcraft's Alliance is getting a chopper after all

If you cast your mind back a couple of months, you might recall the bizarre reality webshow, Azeroth Choppers. In it, two teams of Blizzard folk constructed choppers based on the Horde and Alliance factions, overseen by that professional shouty man and bike maker from American Choppers. 

Upon creation of the choppers, folk were asked to vote for the best one, which would make it into the game. Of course, that meant that one faction would miss out. It was the Horde bike that won - because tusks on a bike are pretty wonderful - leaving the Alliance with nothing. Blizzard have backpedaled, however, and now both bikes will be available for World of Warcraft players.

Elder Scrolls Online apparently has more than 750,000 subscribers

The Elder Scrolls Online has had a lot of problems since launch - duplication bugsgold farmers, and stuck NPCs - but apparently that’s not stopped it from racking more than 750,000 subscribers. According to a report from SuperData, the game boasts 772,374 paying accounts.

That number should only grow with it’s recent move to the Steam storefront.

Hearthstone's Curse of Naxxramas won't cost you your soul

Hearthstone’s dungeon expansion, Curse of Naxxramas, will take adventurous card sharks (and orcs, humans etc) to the floating necropolis of Naxxramas for good times and boss battles this month. Today, Blizzard’s broken down the pricing and bundles and introduces the very World of Warcraft Heroic mode.

Hearthstone's Curse of Naxxramas expansion will kick you out of the tavern and into a dungeon next month

Curse of Naxxramas, Hearthstone’s expansion that promises to drag us out of the tavern and fling us in a foul dungeon, is due out next month. So drink all the mead you can in the mean time. If you've not tasted their fine mead, you should read our Hearthstone review to find out what you're missing.

Blizzard gave up the release window in the forums, noting that there were still bugs to fix and things to implement before launch. Pricing details for the expansion are due to be announced on Tuesday, July 1st.

World of Warcraft's human male MKII

World of Warcraft's human male MKII

The big redesign of World of Warcraft’s old character models has finally hit the humans, or at least the male of the species. Now he looks, if not human, at least more expressive and detailed. Less like a sex doll and more like a shaved gorilla. 

He still looks a little silly, but I remain a fan of the comical proportions and general dopiness, and Blizzard has tried to keep that. The fidelity is vastly improved though.

Ding: World of Warcraft player hits level 90 on his neutral Pandaren

Ding: World of Warcraft player hits level 90 on his neutral Pandaren

He’s done it: Doubleagent has hit level 90 on his Pandaren Shaman. This isn’t your normal player, as this Pandaren has still yet to choose a faction, resulting in him being neutral. Being stuck on his starter island, the only way he could level was via gathering: mining and herbalism.

After 4164 hours his goal is complete, but this isn’t the end as Doubleagent “intends to level to 100 come the next expansion".

Warlords of Draenor's patch notes will keep you reading until launch

World of Warcraft’s Warlords of Draenor expansion is still some ways away, but you can work yourself up into some sweaty excitement by browsing the time travelling expansion’s alpha patch notes

The update list is appropriately humongous given that it’s attached to brand new systems and a whole new/old world to explore. Blizzard’s conveniently provided a TL;DR version as well, because you don’t all have three days to read through the whole bloody thing.
