World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced the release date for the upcoming expansion Legion. Gamers can start playing Legion on August 30th.
Legion will feature a new Hero class called the Demon Hunters, new Artifacts, a new continent called the Broken Isles. The level cap will be raised to 110, but players who are just starting will be able to use a level boost which will start them at level 100. The expansion will also feature a new PvP Honor System and will introduce the Class Hall feature which will “gather with fellow members of your class and unite followers of your order—including iconic characters from Warcraft lore—to carry out missions at your command.”
“In this expansion chronicling the events following Warlords of Draenor,” Blizzard said in a statement, “All hellfire breaks loose when the warlock Gul’dan, betrayer of the orcs and twisted servant of the Burning Legion, unleashes a demonic invasion force upon Azeroth unlike any the Horde and the Alliance have ever faced. To save their world from annihilation, heroes must unlock the mysteries of the mythic Broken Isles, master powerful Artifact weapons, and strike a forbidden pact with the Demon Hunters of the Illidari—vengeful disciples of the dreaded Illidan Stormrage.”
