Holy hell, Forza Horizon 3 is getting a Hot Wheels expansion. Arriving on May 9, the expansion features six themed islands off the coast of Australia, all connected with Hot Wheels track, plus iconic Hot Wheels rides like Twin Mill, Rip Rod and the Bone Shaker. Best expansion idea ever.
Blizzard unveiled the next expansion for Hearthstone today, bringing with it a series of mechanical adjustments and a massive overhaul to deck-building options in April 2017.
During my first ten minutes in Forza Horizon 3's wintry Blizzard Mountain expansion pack, I found myself in a snowstorm so thick I pulled over to wait it out.
The first big expansion for Forza Horizon 3 is now live on PC and Xbox One, adding ice and snow to the game’s varied Australian terrain, just a plane ride away.
Forza Horizon 3's Blizzard Mountain expansion pack brings ice, snow, extreme elevations more to Microsoft’s open-world racing game on December 13. Check out Xbox Wire for more details.
The cycle is the same whenever a massively multiplayer online role-playing game gets a healthy dose of expansion content: weeks of glorious excitement followed by a slow descent into lassitude. It’s all a matter of when it hits. For me and World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion, that’s right about now.
Over the course of the first five expansion packs, Blizzard has slowly evolved World of Warcraft into something very different than the MMO that launched back in 2004. The Legion expansion feels like an entirely new game.
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.
