What is ahead for World of Warcraft in 2016

Buy cheap wow gold  A New Year often brings thoughts of new beginnings, glimmers of hope that the future will be bright. As we begin 2016, Blizzard Entertainment’s “Warcraft” franchise looks like it might have its biggest year in a long while.

Big budget movies featuring characters and worlds that just a few years ago would have been impossible to feature on the big screen have proven to be box office juggernauts over the last few years. Viewers are now accustomed to seeing gods and superheroes battle it out on the big screen. In June, the denizens of Azeroth will get their turn to be exposed to a wider audience than ever before as “Warcraft” hits theaters.

Directed by Duncan Jones and starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu, “Warcraft” tells the story of the first interactions between the Orcs, as they flee their dying world, and the humans of Azeroth. The movie is sure to rekindle interest in former “World of Warcraft” players, as well as bring in some new ones.

The other big happening for “World of Warcraft” in 2016 is the launch of the game’s sixth expansion. “Legion” is expected to be released sometime in or before September, and brings with it an all-new “hero class.” Players will be able to create Demon Hunters, which will have several special abilities. “Legion” will also introduce Artifacts to the game, powerful weapons based on weapons used by legendary characters in the game’s history.

“Legion” will also bring many changes to currently existing characters and game mechanics. There are going to be balance changes to each class, and the PvP system is getting an overhaul. Gear won’t matter nearly as much in “Legion” PvP, where characters will be able to advance through an honor leveling system to gain PvP-only talents.

“Legion” will also introduce Gnome Hunters to the game, along with the Mechanical pet family for Hunters. Gnome and Goblin Hunters will be able to tame Mechanical pets from the outset, and other Hunters will be able to tame them via a device made by Engineers.

Stay tuned for more “World of Warcraft” news as the release dates for the “Warcraft” movie and the “Legion” expansion draw near.
