In a new developer update, Blizzard’s World of Warcraft director Ion Hazzikiostas revealed the new eldritch setting for update 8.3 Vision of N’Zoth, in addition, it will also come with two new playable races.

These two races are Allied Races; the first race is The Vulpera for the Horde and Mechagnomes for the Alliance. Allied Races are unique in WoW and require players to have maxed out their faction reputation before starting a new Allied Race character. The two races were shown off as non-playable races in Battle for Azeroth but in the new update will become fully playable.

The new races were the first surprise in the 18-minute developer update, the second the director unveiled the next chapter after the events of update 8.2.

Players will be able to venture into the Eldritch dimension to battle the Lovecraftian monsters in a brand new realm. A central feature of the update will be Assaults in Uldum and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

If an Assault happens in one of the two specified zones, that zone will alter form and denizens from the Eldritch realm with flow in. There will be time-limited quests and objectives that will take place during these assaults and of course, opportunities for treasures and other rewards.

For those of you who play solo, don’t worry as they’ll be a single-player content called Horrific Visions that they can run entirely by themselves. These solo campaigns are focused on potential futures where the N’Zoth wins and alters Ogrimmar and Stormwind.

For World of Warcraft Classic, Hazzikiostas revealed that dungeon Dire Maul will release separately to the phase two content planned, and will be available in the coming weeks.

Hey, my name is Mark, I am 29, video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration, those were the days! I love RPG's, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

Have your say!
