By now you’ve heard quite a lot about the upcoming expansion otherwise known as Warlords of Draenor but few people know what’s planned for the next. Back in 2012, Blizzard COO Paul Sams stated:
“I got the pitch from [Blizzard senior vice president of creative development Chris Metzen] of what they plan for 6.0, and I’m pretty geeked up about it. They already know what they’re going to be doing for multiple expansions ahead.”
This is great news for millions who still play and love this game. So what started as a rumour has now been confirmed.
With so much hype about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blockbuster, Blizzard revealed anthropomorphic turtles to be the next playable race. The characters were first featured in the sewers of Dalaran but they’ve now gone a step further with another faction-neutral race – just like the Pandaren from the Mists of Pandaria expansion.
You’ll be able to align yourself with either the Alliance or the Horde once you’ve escaped the storm sewers of Manwarran which have been overrun by mutant mana wyrms.
I have to say it’s quite surprising to see Blizzard go down this route but I guess we’ll just have to see how it all plays out.
