This expansion follows on from Warlords of Draenor, which ended up being pretty popular among players. Blizzard announced its upcoming announcement over on Battle Net blog post: “Join us Thursday, August 6 at 9 a.m. PDT for a special World of Warcraft event streamed live from gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany—where we’ll be unveiling the next chapter of the World of Warcraft saga. ”


Rumours seem to suggest that the new expansion will be called The Dark Prophet. eight zones are rumoured to be part of the expansion and the level cap will be raised to 110. There may be a new class known as the ‘Shadow Stalker' and the story may feature two main villains: Zul and Azshara, none of this is confirmed though.

KitGuru Says: I tried to get in to World of Warcraft when Warlords of Draenor launched but it didn't really grab me, though that's probably because I was attempting to solo it. Do any of you still play WoW? Are you looking forward to the next expansion?
