On that day, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of World of Warcraft, for many years heroes from across the world discover the mysteries of the world of Azeroth. Now with Warlords of Draenor, we are far away from the time when we first set our feets inside the depths of Blackrock.
Or the long days between Tarren Mill and Southshore to kill, over and over, foes from the other faction.
Starting today until Tuesday, January 6th we will have the opportunity to rediscover the feelings of that time!
This weekend marks World of Warcraft’s 10th anniversary, and we’d like to thank you for exploring Azeroth with us for all these years. To help celebrate, tomorrow we’re unleashing some great anniversary-themed in-game content for you to enjoy, whether you’re taking a stroll down memory lane or experiencing some of WoW’s defining conflicts for the very first time.
To make sure everyone has plenty of opportunity to take part in the celebration—while still being able to enjoy everything Warlords of Draenor has to offer—all of the anniversary content launching tomorrow will be available until the beginning of 2015. Check out the details below—we’ll see you there!
