The sixth expansion of the World of Warcraft MMORPG has been revealed and its called `The Legion`. The title refers to the Burning Legion, the main anatagonist organisation that is causing all the grief on the planets of Azeroth and Draenor. The adventure takes place on a new continent called `Broken Isles`, presumeably, a newly discovered Island on Azeroth rather than Draenor. The main atagonist race this time round are a group of Night Elves who have sided with the Burning Legion.
Also on show was the obligatory trailer that accompanies the reveal. There was another Video that shows Guldan, the Orc warlock from the previous expansion discovering Illidan Stormrages tomb and appearing to wake him up. However what was not revealed is when the expansion is due for, in terms of either this year or next to tie in with Warcraft movie. It was aloso revealed recently that subscriber numbers are down to 5.6 million active accounts now, down from 10 million when the last expansion came out and down from the high of 12 million when World of Warcraft - Wrath of the Lich King was out.
In addition to the new continent, there is a new hero class called "Demon Hunter", which is a new hero class so guessing, you won`t have to start from level 1 like you did with Monk or other classes excluding the Death Knights. Demon Hunter is based around Illidan Stormrage, a Night Elf that was one of the higher bosses in World of Warcraft - Burning Crusade, the first expansion. The new class will be able to tank and dps but it doesn`t look like the hunter class that was in from the beginning.
