While the world was getting ready for the next adventure through out the world of Azeroth, Blizzard took to the city of Melbourne and launched the game with style, including the massive piece of artwork you see above.
In Legion, Azeroth faces complete obliteration as the warlock Gul’dan brings forth a demonic army more powerful than any the Horde and the Alliance have ever faced. To stop the Legion’s destructive crusade, Azeroth’s defenders must embark on a quest to unlock the mythic secrets of the Broken Isles, seek out and master Artifact weapons of legendary might, and rally like-minded champions to their cause in their Order Halls. In this desperate hour, they must also strike a forbidden pact with the outcast Demon Hunters of the Illidari, fel-twisted disciples of the dreaded Illidan the Betrayer. Should the heroes of Azeroth fail… kingdoms will burn.
“We’re excited to return to one of Warcraft’s core conflicts—the ongoing war against the Burning Legion—and send players on their most epic adventure yet,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’ve filled Legion with features and content that give players whole new ways to experience World of Warcraft, including a brand-new hero class, awesome Artifact weapons that unlock a new progression path, and more freedom to explore than ever before. We can’t wait for players to see everything in store in this expansion.”
With a new character class, new weapons, land to explore and a new level cap, Legion is giving players a lot to explore.
