World of Warcraft is currently one of the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game, it had over seven million subscribers as at March this year (2014). The game also holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular game in its category, in terms of subscribers.
Ever since the first Game released in January 16, 2007, Blizzard Entertainment has successfully rolled out four extensions of the game. World of Warcraft: Warlords Of Draenor is the fifth and latest edition in the World of Warcraft game series and picks up from the last expansion, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.
This game is a sequel to World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria. The events in this game take place in Draenor, which was the initial world and home to the orcs before it was destroyed. It was after the destruction of Draenor that the Outlands featured in the first three World of Warcraft extensions were created.
Some of the characters seen in the past games also appear in the new extension. In the last game, Garrosh Hellscream takes into custody an Alliance-Horde force with the intention of bringing it to trial for the evils it committed in Pandaria, instead, this force overthrows him, takes over control of Horde and keeps him as a prisoner with the intention of bringing him to judgement instead.
Garrosh manages to escape thanks to a renegade bronze dragon and travels back in time to Draenor just before the Horde rise. He then manages to alter future events in his favour by preventing the orcish from taking the demon lord Mannoroth’s blood. This plays a very big role in the events that follow in the first three games.
Utilizing technology brought back in time by Garrosh, the clans come together to form an ‘Iron Horde’ to fight for Draenor.
The game has 10 more levels than the last one adding up to 100 Levels, other new features to lookout for also include new Raids and dungeon. The hardest raid is new difficulty raid called a Mythic. As a player, you have the ability to build your own personal area, known as a garrison, where you can also recruit characters that will help you during missions. There are also several changes to the Player versus player game mode.
One of the main changes includes a new island area, which has different objects that players can use in battle.
Expect has better graphics, improved character details in this new version. The improved details in the new World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor do not have significant effect on performance, the game automatically drops the degree of detail during fights in order to keep performance speeds up.
