A new patch will hit the denizens of World of Warcraft tomorrow (Wednesday for EU), that will bring the game in line with the version of Warlords of Draenor that’s being tested on the beta realms. It’ll also include fixes for issues that cropped up in the initial transition to 6.0, while porting over the remaining assets required for the launch of the new expansion on November 13th.
“Our plan is to not require a launch-day patch, and have a smooth transition to the new expansion.”
Community manager Bashiok broke the news on the World of Warcraft forums. “We’re planning to release a patch tomorrow that will bring the live game up-to-date with the version currently being tested on the beta realms.” announced Bashiok “This includes a number of fixes and changes to address issues we’ve identified since the release of 6.0.2, as well as remaining assets and content to prepare for the launch of Warlords of Draenor.”
This effort to get everyone patched up before the launch of Warlords of Draenor is no mistake, but instead to make the launch as painless as possible. “As we’ve done in prior expansions, our plan is to not require a launch-day patch, and have a smooth transition to the new expansion in North America at midnight Pacific on November 13.”
There’s no mention on the exact patch details, nor its size, but you can expect it to be bigger than your average bug fix.
