World of Warcraft Expansion Warlords of Draenor Gets A Release Date

It’s been a couple of years since World of Warcraft received its last expansion Mists of Pandaria, so fans around the globe will be delighted to hear that the next instalment in the insanely popular MMORPG has a released date at last.

That’s right, folks Blizzard have announced that World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor will be coming to a PC near you on November 13th 2014.

So, from that day, you, that’s right, you; will be able to take a walk around the fabulous wilds of Draenor, the home of Grommash Hellscream’s merciless Iron Horde.

Blizzard bigwig Mike Morhaime had this to say:

Players will encounter an epic cast of legendary characters and a huge amount of content to explore in Warlords of Draenor. The countdown to the arrival of one of the greatest threats in Warcraft history has begun. We can’t wait to send everyone through the Dark Portal this November.”

They also released the opening cinematic and you can take a look at it right here:

It’s not just new places to explore, though; you’ll be able to build and manage a customizable fortress, battle it out in a huge new PvP zone and take on a wide array of Dungeons, Raids, Battlegrounds, Challenge Modes. The level-cap is also pushed up to 100 and if you want to fast-track a new character you can ping one up to level 90 instantly, you little cheat you…

You can grab the expansion (pre-order style) now in standard mode for £34.99 or pick up the all singing all dancing “Digital Deluxe Edition”  for £49.99 and get a bunch of digital bonus items.

Alternatively, you can wait for the retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition (£64.99), which comes with the digital bonus items from the Digital Deluxe Edition as well as a full-color hardcover art book, a behind-the-scenes two-disc Blu-ray/DVD set, a CD soundtrack, and a Warlords of Draenor mouse pad. So plenty of options there if this takes your fancy…
