At an event today in L.A., Blizzard announced that the next expansion for World of Warcraft called Warlords of Draenor, will be launching on November 13th of this year. “The age of the whimsical panda is over!” Chris Metzen, Blizzard Senior Vice President, proclaimed to great adulation from the raucous crowd at the Ace Theatre in Los Angeles. Along with the release date, Blizzard released an all new cinematic, and proved once again that they make the single best CG trailers on the planet.
On top of that, Blizzard spoke about the lore surrounding the upcoming expansion, and announced a five part animated series focusing on Kargath’s time before he was a war lord. The first episode has been released today, and can be found here. Fans in attendance were also given a glimpse at gameplay for the upcoming expansion, but none of that has yet been released to the public. Look for Warlords of Draenor on Thursday, November 13th of this year.
