5 Exciting World of Warcraft Expansion Details

Blizzard Entertainment announced a new World of Warcraft expansion with more details coming at Gamscom 2015. You don’t need to wait for the live stream to learn more about the World of Warcraft 6th expansion, thanks to important leaks.

In early August at Gamescom in Germany Blizzard will unveil the new World of Warcraft expansion to gamers and will offer a developer chat to shed more light on what’s new in the World of Warcraft expansion pack.

Here’s a fast look at the exciting new World of Warcraft expansion details that we know, that leaks share and what to expect.

Blizzard confirmed today that there is a new World of Warcraft expansion coming to the game. The company did not announce the name of the sixth World of Warcraft expansion at this time, but there will be two events to watch at Gamescom 2015 in Germany.

This suggests that the new World of Warcraft expansion release date is coming in 2015, and that we will learn about it at Gamescom 2015.

World of Warcraft: The Dark Prophet

Leaks indicate that the new World of Warcraft expansion is, World of Warcraft: The Dark Prophet, but this is unconfirmed for now

This traces back to leaks in early July, and it certainly looks like the new World of Warcraft expansion pack will use this name when it arrives.

You don’t need to go to Germany and attend Gamescom 2015 to see what’s new in the World of Warcraft expansion pack. Blizzard Entertainment confirmed there will be a live stream from Gamescom 2015, sharing,

“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.”

On Sunday August 8th at 8 AM Pacific Blizzard will host a World of Warcraft Developer chat to share more details.

New World of Warcraft Expansion Details

Leaks on Reddit and 4chan outlined what to expect from the new World of Warcraft expansion. Although the posts are no longer online, MMO Champion shares the important details in the forums.

“Zul and Azshara are the main villains.

After the last defeat Zul has asked Rastakhan for more support, but Rastakhan has lost the confidence in Zul and refuses support. In a big coup, Zul has Rastakhan assassinated and assumes control of the Zandalari.

The Zandalari trolls ally with the naga, whose goal it is to flood the continents and raise the ocean level.

The big focus of the expansion will be on night elves and trolls, with Malfurion and Vol’jin being the main heroes.

This is Vo’jin’s big opportunity to prove himself as the warchief of the Horde.

A big emphasis will be on Vol’jin’s loyalty to the Horde, despite the opportunity to be part of a newly risen troll empire. His story will be about resisting the temptation to join the Zandalari and stay with his family.

This is the South Seas expansion that so many players want.”

We also learn that the new levelcap is 110, there will be eight zones in the expansion and likely two to three dungeons in each zone. MMO Champions shares more details about the story including the starting zones, settings and ship travel.

      Actually, the individual that leaked/predicted this is the same person who accurately leaked Warlords of Draenor. So while nothing is solid until Blizzard themselves announce, this report does seem to hold some credibility.

    Who cares about World of warcraft??? Seriously, you all are going to be paying $70 bucks for a new expansion every year including the subscription/gold shit. ITS A WAIST OF MONEY! Final fantasy 14 is so much better! WoW is just trying to make money off of you now! Atleast FF14 listens to the players and does what they think is best for the players with their own input instead of just changing shit because it sounds good. Im sorry, But World of warcraft ENDED back in LICH KING

      Yes WOW ended in LK. FF14 still blows though. This report may hold 100% accurate except a 2015 release date is so outta their mind on that one. 1-1.5 years from today 07/31/15. Period, otherwise beta would already be ongoing.

      I think you need to calm down and shut the hell up. Stop telling people what to do with their money, why do you care if people play it anyways. WoW is a staple in the MMO genre and will be until something new and much more innovative comes to surface. Also it’s spelled waste not waist.

    Okay if this is true than I really am excited. I have wanted a new class and race for a while so I’m glad they’re listening to us on that!!! I’m bummed about the level increase, 100 should really be it, but I can live with 110 i guess. I’m SO STOKED about this new class though!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!! I hope this is correct……..I’d prefer a true-blue summoning class like Yuna from FF….but oh wells! hehe

    WoW’s sub numbers are down. Final Fantasies are up. You want a next gen MMO? Final Fantasy XIV – it’s the next-gen version of Vanilla WoW, and it’s good. Real, real good.
