World of Warcraft: Legion

Earlier today Blizzard announced World of Warcraft: Legion during a live presentation at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Legion marks the sixth expansion for the world renowned MMORPG. Of course with a new expansion comes crazy new weapons, monsters, locations, dungeons, raids, and finally a new Hero Class. That’s right folks! This time around you’ll get to square off against the Burning Legion as a freaking Demon Hunter that can not only dps, but also tank for your group. Oh let’s not forget the Demon Hunter can also metamorphose into new forms. Yowza!

“In World of Warcraft: Legion, the stakes for the Alliance and the Horde are higher than ever, so we’re putting some of Azeroth’s deadliest forces directly in players’ hands,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether they’re wreaking havoc as a Demon Hunter or unlocking awesome new abilities for their Artifact, players will develop their characters’ power in ways they never have before.”
