World of Warcraft, give me the turtle people

If you’ve been out of the loop regarding World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, but you’ve played the game and always wanted to be one of the many unplayable races you’ve encountered, you may be in luck.

Feature: A somewhat partisan issue

“For the what?”: Why Battle for Azeroth’s call to arms isn’t working for Horde players

The lore of the Warcraft universe is singularly focused on the divide between the Horde and the Alliance - or, if you’re older than a lot of its audience, orcs and humans. For many years, Blizzard has formed a sine-wave storyline that oscillates between the lows of factional, even nationalist warfare, and the highs of joining forces to face larger threats.

World Of Warcraft’s Vulpine could be another Allied Race

The early introduction of World Of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’s Allied Races is a big part of the reason I am once again traipsing through Azeroth and beyond. They're new races, like the spooky Void Elves, who you can play as once you make friends with them and complete a series of quests. Any excuse to add an alt to my disgusting collection. But more…

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth out this summer

You can tell Blizzard are based in California because they see summer as something to escape from, a cruel and terrible season where people need something big to occupy themselves in the air-conditioned indoors. We can tell this because Blizzard have announced plans to release the next World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth, sometime this summer.
