World Of Warcraft’s pre-expansion patch is out now, overhauling a lot

While World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is delayed, the pre-expansion patch introducing many of its big changes has arrived. Here's one to start: WoW's level cap is now 50. It's come all the way the down from 120 as Blizzard rescale everything. The new starter zone is in too, easing newbies in on a new island. Plus each class gets access to some of the thematically-defining…

Blizzard have delayed World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Sorry, death. With the news that World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands has been delayed out of its October launch, it looks like we'll be avoiding the grave a little while longer. Blizzard today announced they've pushed their behemoth MMO's next expansion back to "later this year" to give the underworld a bit more polish as developers continue to deal with the weirdness of remote working.

BlizzCon Online is scheduled for February 2021

As with most other physical conventions this year, BlizzCon 2020 is cancelled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Blizzard said that they wanted to take the con online but didn't think they'd be able to squeeze it into this calendar year. They were right on that front, but you won't be waiting until next November for the con to return. Honorary BlizzCon 2020 will now officially…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands minimum PC requirements now include HDDs again

After yesterday's kerfuffle over World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands' PC requirements listing an SSD as the minimum type of storage supported, Blizzard have now updated the game's minimum requirements to include good old-fashioned HDDs as well. In their updated support article on the subject, the storage entry for WOW's Shadowlands expansion now includes both SSDs and HDDs, with the extra clarification that "player experience may be…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands PC requirements calls for an SSD

World Of Warcraft's Shadowlands expansion is getting a formal release on October 27th, but Blizzard's recently updated PC requirements for the game have been causing quite a stink among its player base. While the minimum CPU and GPU requirements haven't changed all that much, the minimum storage requirement now seems to imply that you need an SSD to play WOW's Shadowlands expansion rather than a…

World Of Warcraft delves into the Shadowlands this October

You've killed every god, demon and monstrosity in the world of the living - so I s'pose it's time to quest through the afterlife instead. The next chapter in Blizzard's seemingly-unstoppable MMO, World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands tonight announced that it'll open the gates to the collective afterlives in October with two new trailers.

World Of Warcraft Classic begins the war to open Ahn’Qiraj today

Brought your bug repellant, adventurers? World Of Warcraft Classic is going back to Silithus to revisit the game's most notorious bug hunt. Today's update for the throwback MMO is preparing to re-open the lost Silithid empire of Ahn'Qiraj - which is to say that the long and arduous task of funding an army, piecing together an ancient staff worthy of a Scarab Lord, and knocking…

Who needs clothes to kill WoW Classic’s biggest dragon, anyway?

Onyxia, Broodmother of the Black Dragonflight. If you're a veteran World Of Warcraft player, that name will immediately conjure long-buried feelings of dread - from the precision play needed to take her down, to the hours spent grinding quests to even enter her lair. But Azeroth's scariest dragon seems to have lost her touch, as a band of 40 World Of Warcraft: Classic adventurers worked…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is killing its gender transition fee

By all accounts, changing gender in World Of Warcraf has always been simpler than doing it for real. No appointments, no faff, no convincing Bobby Kotick through two years "lived experience" - just pay Blizzard a small fee and they'd let you rebuild your digital persona from the ground up. With this year's World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion, even that hurdle is getting the boot,…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands beta arrives next week

The Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on a few games now, causing all sorts of delays on new info and release dates. Not World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands, though, as Blizzard confirmed in last night's live stream that the expansion will be arriving sometime this autumn, "even if they end up shipping from their homes." WoW fans will get to explore that sinister land of…

World Of Warcraft Classic just booted over 74,000 bot accounts

World Of Warcraft Classic has a bot problem. Harking back to the days when MMOs required a hell of a lotta grind, Blizzard's throwback MMO is filled with folk looking for an easy out. Following a particularly nasty few months of scripted heroes, game-breaking exploits and a parade of Orcs marching against cheaters, this month saw the developers wipe the realms clean of over 74,000…

BlizzCon 2020 has been cancelled, but plans to return as an online event next year

The game event cancellations are pushing even deeper into the year now, as Blizzard have announced BlizzCon 2020 is a no-go. The event usually takes right at the beginning of November, but due to ongoing concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic they've made the decision to cancel it."We've talked about different paths we could take, and how each one could be complicated by fluctuations in national…

This World Of Warcraft board game should be good

When videogames try to return to their ancestral routes, it doesn't always go well. There are exceptions (hello, XCOM), but you often wind up with overwrought slogfests (hello, Dark Souls). I'm confident that the upcoming Small World Of Warcraft will buck that trend, because it's basically Small World wearing a World Of Warcraft coat with new ideas stuffed in its pockets.Small World is pretty good!…

Unofficial World Of Warcraft server briefly simulated their own (educational) pandemic

Last weekend, World Of Warcraft private server Elysium planted a single, awful seed. Server organisers coated one in-game item with a highly infectious virus. Within 24 hours of first infection, it had spread to over 7,000 players. This was Pandemic in Azeroth, an attempt from one fan project to deliver actionable real-world advice on surviving the Covid-19 pandemic to World Of Warcraft's fantasy denizens.

World Of Warcraft’s double-XP buff will now last until the next expansion’s pre-patch

Did this whole "being stuck inside" thing get you reinstalling World Of Warcraft again? No? Well, I'm proud of you. If you did fall back into the MMO (or never left), however, the next few months should be smooth sailing indeed. Blizzard this week announced that the Winds of Wisdom double-XP buff has been extended, and will now run until the pre-release update for WoW's…

Blizzard asks World Of Warcraft players if they’d go back to The Burning Crusade

What happens after World Of Warcraft: Classic? It's something the MMO throwback was always going to have to deal with, eventually. There's only so much content to revisit after all. As Classic's expiration date slowly draws closer, Blizzard have begun asking players what they'd like to see next - specifically, whether they're ready to head back through the Dark Portal in a Classic-style return to…

World of Warcraft is doubling all XP gains to keep its players indoors

We all get those urges from time to time. You're stuck at home, the PC's right there. Surely it's time to start up another World of Warcraft character, right? Unfortunately, that temptation might be harder to resist this month. As an incentive for staying indoors and infection-free, Blizzard have let loose the Winds of Wison, an 100% experience boost for every Azerothian adventurer 'til April…

World Of Warcraft Classic has brought back the Blackwing Lair raid

Originally released in World Of Warcraft back in July 2005, Assault on Blackwing Lair has made a comeback in WoW Classic. In the raid you'll be challenged to defeat Deathwing's son, Nefarian, who's been doing some nasty sounding experiments on the poor dragonflights. The 40 player raid dungeon arrived in a nice big update yesterday, along with some brand new reputation rewards and class quests,…
