World of Warcraft followers can often anticipate a brand new enlargement announcement on the yearly BlizzCon conference, however this yr issues have been fairly totally different. The just lately returned Chris Metzen took to the stage to announce an entire “Worldsoul Saga,” which can play out over the subsequent three expansions for the MMORPG. These three expansions will likely be The Struggle Inside, Midnight, and The Final Titan.
All three of those expansions will delve into elements of Azeroth that we’ve seen earlier than, however that are modified by new occasions. The Struggle Inside takes place beneath Azeroth, in caverns and deep locations inhabited by the Earthen and the spider-like Nerubian Empire. The sword that Sargeras has plunged deep into Azeroth again in the course of the occasions of Legion has sparked some sort of response, involving a mysterious voice (my cash is on the worldsoul of the planet, contemplating the saga we’re coping with right here).
The second enlargement is Midnight, and it’s in regards to the Void rising up and getting into a conflict with the forces of the Gentle. It definitely appears to be like like this will likely be an Previous Gods-focused enlargement, particularly since we all know that Xal’atath, a fan favourite character, is returning. Xal’atath first confirmed up within the plot as a very chatty knife, however she’s an influence participant on the cosmic scale, and he or she has been taking part in the heroes of Azeroth in direction of some unknown finish.
Lastly, The Final Titan is the furthest enlargement out, nevertheless it definitely sounds prefer it has an apocalyptical premise. Metzen promised that this would be the enlargement that unveils the secrets and techniques of the Titans, large Order-aligned custodians who’ve been God-like figures all through most of World of Warcraft’s historical past. Curiously, we all know the Titans are sealed in with fan favourite character Illidan, so there’s loads of room to take a position as to how the top of the Saga will play out.
Blizzard has been hyping a battle between Void and Gentle for years. They’re two of six cosmic powers, and they’re fully opposed. The Void are represented by the nefarious Previous Gods, in addition to extra nuanced characters like Alleria Windrunner, the void elves, and shadow monks. In the meantime, the Gentle is the patron of paladins and monks, nevertheless it has additionally led to horrible acts of extremism.
We’ll doubtless be taught extra about each side of this upcoming cosmic warfare as we progress by means of the Worldsoul Saga. This degree of pre-planning and announcement is unprecedented for World of Warcraft, however there’s nonetheless loads of room for plot twists and surprises within the raids and dungeons alongside the way in which. The Struggle Inside will come out in 2024, with new options like Delves and Warbands, dynamic flying for previous mounts, and new underground zones to discover.
