World Of Warcraft is a decade old MMO that players still enjoy and developer, Blizzard Entertainment, has been adding new content from time to time. During the recent BlizzCon 2016, game director Ion Hazzikostas gave a preview of what is coming to the game in 2017.
Firstly, he detailed the Patch 7.1.5 and Patch 7.2 The Tomb of Sargeras, and noted that new a new raid, a new dungeon and new PvP content will all be coming to Azeroth soon. However, the most interesting thing was detailed at the end of the presentation.
While Hazzikostas did not said it straight forward but he did hinted that players of World Of Warcraft will be leaving Azeroth altogether. The developer hinted that players will travel to planet of Argus in patch 7.3, but he held back details.
This started a speculation among fans that Hazzikostas was hinting towards a new expansion for the game, but he clarified while speaking with Polygon, that Argus will be a major patch for World Of Warcraft: Legion expansion.
It felt like the right time. I don’t know if Argus would hold up as an expansion in and of itself. We could make up a whole lot of ecologies and things there, but at the end of the day, it would feel like a very one-note, alien expansion.
While comparing with Mass Effect 2’s ending Hazzikostas said that Argus is going to be the climax for Legion.
It’s kind of like the end of Mass Effect 2. We’ve been fighting on our end. Now we’re going on our suicide mission, because this is the only way to save ourselves.
No details were revealed about when players can expect patch 7.3, but Patch 7.1.5 will go live on World of Warcraft public test realm next week.
World Of Warcraft is a hugely popular MMO RPG developed by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and MAC OS.
