Game Information

Available on:PCAug 30, 2016

Developer: Blizzard Entertainment

Genres: MMO, RPG

The Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, and the demons of the Burning Legion pour into our world. Their full, terrifying might is fixed on summoning the Dark Titan to Azeroth—and they’ve already located the key to his return.

With the Alliance and Horde devastated, only you can take up Warcraft’s most legendary artifacts, scour the ancient Broken Isles for relics of the Titans, and challenge the Legion before Azeroth’s last hope dies.

Steel yourself, champion. Extinction is imminent.

The one big question mark is whether Blizzard can maintain that energy after launch, but so far the outlook seems promising.
