[World of Warcraft] I fail today at naming this post but I do provide you with information about World of Warcraft. Cold hard facts from the Lead Developer Shane Dabiri (we go way back, we do!) about the great and wonderful-ness of WoW, and how they plan on taking over the universe on the backs of Epic White Tigers.
There were some comments of note:
We are committed to delivering the highest quality online experience for our players. Some of our upcoming plans have already been mentioned on our community site. For example, in our next major update, we will be releasing Blackwing Lair, a 40-person raid dungeon, where you will be able to battle against the epic dragon Nefarian and his minions. We are also working on a 20-person dungeon called Zul’Gurub, and the mysterious lands of Ahn’Qiraj in Silithus. Outside of dungeons, we want to continue adding new world events, such as a carnival that will take place in Mulgore and Elwynn forest.
Awesome! A third dungeon to grind through endlessly when you have nothing else to do after you ding 60!
Of course, on top of all this, each content update will also bring new quests, items, professions recipes, and continued class improvements. Some have asked about an expansion and what it might hold. I wanted to let players know that it is in the works, and we’ll release details as soon as we can.
Yes, Azeroth, not everyone has left Blizzard to go work at NCSoft! We still have the guy that brings me coffee in the morning. And we managed to shackle two of the junior interns to a desk. They are now being instructed in game coding, a la A Clockwork Orange! So there is an expansion on the way, but the GM’s will be forced to ban you if you ever ask when it might be released. Oh yeah, forgot to mention we tossed that in the last ToS update…
Anyway, back to reality, Blizzard looks like they are working pretty hard at content development, so there should be more for everyone soon.
