Players can’t initially fly in World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion, but once they’ve reached level 110 and made a few friends they can at least call a flying cab.
This is several dozen players battling a new World of Warcraft world boss named Kosumoth the Hungering. Players stumbled upon the zone-spanning steps needed to spawn him while searching for another World of Warcraft secret entirely.
Hitting World of Warcraft: Legion’s 110 level cap isn’t the end of the game. In fact, it’s when the expansion really starts picking up speed, dropping an overwhelming amount of activities on the player all at once.
It’s been four days since World of Warcraft’s sixth expansion dropped, and while a full review is weeks away, I’ve been plenty busy exploring, dancing, crafting, participating in PVP . . . okay I’ve just been obsessively collecting artifact weapons. I need them.
After ordering the slaughter of surrendering Horde troops and voting to weaponize ancient evil in Mists of Pandaria, the Alliance’s bloodthirsty air commander’s first actions in Legion get her airship cracked in two over the Stormheim Mountains. Sky Admiral Rogers is the worst.
The Druids. Nobody knows who they were, or what they were doing. In World of Warcraft: Legion what they’re doing is spending a lot of time in their lush and vibrant Order Hall, the latest expansion’s answer to one of Warlords of Draenor’s more contentious features.
Raccoon the grizzled Outlaw Rogue stands in demon-besieged Dalaran, moments before Azeroth’s greatest mages pull off their most amazing feat yet: making me even more alt-crazy than I already was. Judging from the first few hours, Legion is going to be a very good problem for me.
With the European launch of World of Warcraft’s sixth expansion a little over an hour away and North America following six hours later, Azeroth is not in great shape. Heroes are dead, leadership is faltering, and our only hope for salvation lies in a set of artifacts no one’s seen for thousands of years. This is fine.
With World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion launching next week, we finish off our tour of the MMO’s previous expansions by saying farewell to the amazing strongholds we spent the past year and change building up.
Our trip through the first five World of Warcraft expansions on the way to Legion continues into Northrend, the frozen continent no one was paying attention to for the first four years of the game’s existence, but is actually a major threat to all existence.
As Kotaku’s resident non-Final Fantasy MMO player, I pretty much have to play through World of Warcraft’s upcoming Legion expansion. You have a choice. Blizzard’s dropped a video covering all the major new places and things meant to help you make that choice come August 30.
Players who pre-purchase World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion gain access to the new Demon Hunter class on August 9, well in advance of the August 30 launch. Demon Hunters can only be elves though, so it hardly matters.
Tomorrow Blizzard applies most of the major mechanical changes of Legion to World of Warcraft, giving players six weeks to get used to the new stuff before the expansion pack launches on August 30. What’s your plan of attack? Aside from leveling a gnome hunter, that is.
Sending players on a mission to save the future by killing the past, or saving the past in the future? Days of future past? It’s all very confusing, but that’s what happened when Star Trek Online released its Agents of Yesterday expansion seven years ago. Or today. Stupid time.
And I thought Blade & Soul was fast with the updates. Massively multiplayer role-playing game Black Desert Online officially launched in North America and Europe on March 3. Its first expansion arrives tomorrow.
Whether it’s a good old-fashioned expansion pack or modern DLC, spinning additional content for already-released games has been a standard practice in the industry for decades. But the best expansions do more than simply add a few extra hours of the same game for you to play.
Retro RTS fans, take note: the African Kingdoms expansion for Age of Empires II HD hits at the end of the week. Here’s what that’ll entail.
I’ve been spending the early days of Guild Wars 2’s Heart of Thorns expansion pack trying to remember how to play Guild Wars 2. So far it’s not going well.
Klei continues to expand Don’t Starve, and it’s partnering with Super Time Force developer Capybara Games for the water-based Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked expansion. The PC, Mac, and Linux versions get new “playable characters, biomes, creatures and seasonal effects” this fall, but no word on the other platforms.
I’d love to be able to report this week that I’ve reached the new level cap and experienced some of the high-end content Final Fantasy XIV’s first expansion has to offer, but first I need to figure out which version of my character I want to be.
