World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Announced

Blizzard has announced at BlizzCon 2013 that the latest expansion for World of Warcraft will be Warlords of Draenor. It had been rumoured that Warlords of Draenor was the new expansion after the name showed up in a trademark and domain registration earlier in the month. The expansion is expected to arrive in 2014.

At the event, Blizzard revealed that the expansion will feature new character models, as well as giving those attending a glimpse of the Draenor zone. Newcomers to the game will be able to boost immediately to level 90, and as expected, the level cap has been raised form 90 to 100, along with the typical additions of new dungeons, raids and zones. One interesting new feature however is that players will be able to build and upgrade garrisons. As to what exactly this expands to is still unknown, but could be a promising and interesting feature nonetheless.

World of Warcraft currently has 7.6 million subscribers.
