Blizzard unveils next expansion for World of Warcraft and it takes players back to an Outland of the past.
Blizzard recently grabbed the Warlords of Draenor trademark and today at BlizzCon, the company revealed that it is the name of the new expansion for World of Warcraft. After his defeat at the hands of Alliance and Horde players in the Siege of Orgrimmar 5.4 update, Garrosh Hellscream escapes his trial and goes back in time to an Outland of 35 years ago.
Blizzard's Chris Metzen made the announcement at the opening ceremonies for this year's BlizzCon, reminding everyone that Outland was the world of Draenor before it was shattered and home of the orcs.
The official line:
"Across Draenor's savage jungles and battle-scarred plains, Azeroth's heroes will engage in a mythic conflict involving mystical draenei champions and mighty orc clans, and cross axes with the likes of Grommash Hellscream, Blackhand, and Ner'zhul at the height of their primal power.
"Players will need to scour this unwelcoming land in search of allies to help build a desperate defense against the old Horde's formidable engine of conquest-or else watch their own world's bloody, war-torn history repeat itself."
