World of Warcraft’s next expansion is shaping up nicely. It just got a new alpha build, and while it’s still in early development, one thing’s for sure: Suramar, a new zone in the Broken Isles, is already looking absolutely terrific.

You might remember a simpler version of Suramar from WarCraft III. It is the home of the Kaldorei and this is where their ancient capital Suramar City overlooks the entire region. It feels like a mixture of Draenor’s Shadowmoon Valley, Eversong Woods and the Howling Fjord. And Moon Guar Bastion (the fortress in the top pic) even reminds me a bit of the elven city of Suldanessellar from Baldur’s Gate II.

Here are some amazing shots, shared by Red Shirt Guy, and here’s a lot more in hi-res. Remember the game’s still in alpha (Suramar City for example has no textures yet), so all this scenery will eventually be filled up with life. Can’t wait to get my characters over there!

I don’t see stunning, I see dated graphics with purple and green. The Witcher was stunning, WoW hasn’t been in ages.
