Warlords of Draenor™ Launches 13/11



The Iron Horde is on the march, and the Warlords of Draenor are primed to invade Azeroth on November 13! Steel yourself for the onslaught by watching an arsenal of vicious videos we’ve just unveiled in our recent live-stream event: the Warlords of Draenor opening cinematic, and the first installment of a new animated lore miniseries, Lords of War.



Live Stream Event Replay


If you missed the Warlords of Draenor live-stream event on Thursday, you can check out the replay below. You’ll also hear the WoW developers lay out details on the pre-launch in-game event, the gameplay of the expansion’s dynamic new PvP zone Ashran, and more.



Warlords of Draenor Cinematic


At a pivotal moment in Draenor history, Warsong chieftain Grommash Hellscream challenges destiny and reforges the fate of his people. Witness the rise of the Iron Horde in the newly revealed Warlords of Draenor opening cinematic.



Lords of War: Part One—Kargath Bladefist


Before you can harbor any hope of defeating the Iron Horde, you must first understand what—and whom—you’re up against. Our new five-part series Lords of War introduces you to some of the major players in the campaign on Draenor—beginning with the sadistic Kargath Bladefist, leader of the Shattered Hand.



Visit www.worldofwarcraft.com in the weeks ahead for more episodes of Lords of War, and arm yourself with the knowledge you need to survive the battle ahead.



And don’t forget you can pre-order Warlords of Draenor now to prepare for the expansion’s November 13 launch. A level-90 character boost is included with your pre-purchase, allowing you to sharpen your skills with a new class—or work out the rust with an old favorite—before all Hellscream breaks loose on Azeroth.

Argi Raises More Than $1.9 Million



Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of World of Warcraft players around the world who purchased the Argi pet, we’ve raised a total of more than 1.9 million USD to support the ongoing Ebola relief efforts in Africa by the Red Cross. In December, we announced that for every Argi purchased by December 31, 2014, 100% of the adoption fee would be going to assist in aiding in the fight against this deadly disease -- and the community embraced this cute little intergalactic nibbler, helping out a great cause in the process. Thanks again to everyone who helped make a difference.
