Azeroth and its heroes are taking to the skies in the latest expansion de World of Warcraft , Dragonflight . Blizzard announced World of Warcraft: Dragonflight on Tuesday during a live stream that included a preview of the expansion and the announcement of World of Warcraft Classic: Wrath of the Lich King .
The expansion’s announcement included a cinematic trailer that gave players a glimpse into the history of Azeroth, before revealing how dragons returned to the modern world to defeat an ancient threat.
Check out the cinematic trailer for the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion:
Dragonflight will place the Dragon Aspects of Azeroth at the center of Warcraft history for the first time since Cataclysm in 2010. The Aspects sought the help of the world’s mortal heroes to restore their powers and stop an emerging evil. To do this, players will travel to the Dragon Islands, which will be divided into five different zones. Players can also navigate the Dragon Isles through the air using Dragonriding, which seems to be somewhere between gliding and flying.
The new expansion will also add a new race called the Dractyr: shapeshifting dragons with draconic and humanoid forms. Dractyr will only be able to play as the Evoker, a new class that is also being introduced in Dragonflight . The Evoker is a class that can only be chosen by Dractyr characters.
Evoker has two specializations to choose from: Devastation, the first new ranged damage spec do World of Warcraft since the game’s launch, and Preservation, a healer. Dractyr can join the Alliance or Horde and will start in their own special starting area, at a higher level than other races and starting classes.
In addition to these major new features,Dragonflightwill also include many minor updates that will be welcome additions to fans. Professions are getting a major update in the form of work orders, which will allow players to more easily recruit each other to craft items, as well as new profession equipment and a new specialization system. Blizzard is also updating the basic user interfacedo World of Warcraftfor this new expansion, although I haven’t previewed much of what we can expect from it.
Perhaps the biggest systematic addition to the expansion is the game’s new talent tree. The system is reminiscent of the talent trees that theWorld of Warcraftused to have, and will give players dozens of options and combinations to customize their class exactly how they want to play, according to Blizzard.
Dragonflight doesn’t have a release date yet, but Blizzard said it expects news of the expansion’s alpha in the near future.
