Flying above Azeroth in World of Warcraft “makes you feel more connected to the world”

World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Dragonflight, has unenviable shoes to fill. At launch, its precursor, Shadowlands, was allegedly the fastest-selling PC game of all time. Still, thanks to a shoddy patch release timetable, questionable gameplay pacing, and unpopular story vignettes, in no small part due to the coronavirus pandemic, Shadowlands has left a sour taste in the mouth over the last two years.

While the big sell of the new expansion is right there in the name, being able to take to the skies astride a scaly beast isn’t enough on its own to keep World of Warcraft players entertained for two years. Thankfully, it looks like Blizzard is doing a lot more with the new adventure, evoking much of that classic World of Warcraft feel of exploration, adventure, and core fantasy of the bygone days of Warcraft’s past.“Everything about this expansion feels very classic Warcraft to me,” associate game director Jeremy Feasel says, “It’s a chance to tell dragon stories, to delve into their history in a way that we’ve only hinted at in the past. It’s been one of those hanging story threads that a lot of people have been interested in pulling on, and they’re part and parcel with the history and future of Azeroth, so if you’re a lore nerd, I think that’s going to be really interesting.”

But Feasel quickly explains that this isn’t just a lore dump, saying, “We’ve doubled down on focusing on our max-level sandbox activities. We want you to feel like you’re a member of a faction like the Tuskarr, with feasts and fishing and family, or when you’re doing Centaur things, you’re thundering across the Ohn’ahran Plains hunting big creatures. I think there’s an interesting evolution of our max-level system there.

“We’ve also evolved the Mythic+ system, which we started in Season 4 of Shadowlands and carried over into this expansion. We got to an awesome space by the end of Shadowlands, and we had a tonne of systems evolutions. “We carried that all forward while revamping the game’s whole UI and adding a new talent system for players to dig into. It’s a great time to join World of Warcraft.”
