The beautiful thing about a living world is that it can be constantly updated and improved as the game goes on. The new Battlegrounds expansion that is due out in a few weeks will surely add some new challenges for players and hopefully thereíll be more where that came from. Other than the problems that I mentioned earlier, itís a rather smooth running game, but of course experiences may vary. There are a few minor issues with the game at current that are hopefully being worked out, but if youíre a fan of MMOGs, then you owe it to yourself to try World of Warcraft. Oh, and if you see me with my PvP flag on, always be wary, Iím never alone.
World of WarCraft is perhaps not the deepest MMO out there, but it definitely ranks up high in the longevity factor. What's different about it is that Blizzard has made the game very accessible and really put together an amazing system of quests that aren't just part of the depth, but actually a tutorial. All this is done in a world rich in landmarks, characters, races and enemies.
Four years have passed since the aftermath of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and a great tension now smolders throughout the ravaged world of Azeroth. As the battle-worn races begin to rebuild their shattered kingdoms, new threats, both ancient and ominous, arise to plague the world once again.
World of Warcraft is an online role-playing experience set in the award-winning Warcraft universe. Players assume the roles of Warcraft heroes as they explore, adventure, and quest across a vast world. Being "Massively Multiplayer," World of Warcraft allows thousands of players to interact within the same world. Whether adventuring together or fighting against each other in epic battles, players will form friendships, forge alliances, and compete with enemies for power and glory.
A dedicated live team will create a constant stream of new adventures to undertake, lands to explore, and monsters to vanquish. This content ensures that the game will never be the same from month to month, and will continue to offer new challenges and adventures for years to come.
