Blizzard has unveiled the new expansion for World of Warcraft called Dragonflight.

There were already rumors that the new expansion would be called that, but last night it was officially revealed during a livestream. Players travel to the Dragon Isles in the expansion. The new location is described as opulent and ‘primordial’.

Dragonflight introduces a new hybrid race, the Dracthyr Evokers. They start at level 58 and can join both the Horde and the Alliance. They have two forms: their dragon-like avatars used during combat and their human forms when talking to people from Azeroth.

In addition, dragons are added that players can fly on. This dragon can be completely customized to the player’s taste. The dragon can also be upgraded to become faster or to cover greater distances.

In addition to these new options, Blizzard also needs to make improvements to existing elements of World of Warcraft. For example, the talent system must be overhauled and the UI must be adjusted. It is not yet known when the expansion will be released. More information can be found on the official website.

Blizzard has also announced that Wrath of the Lich King is coming to World of Warcraft Classic later this year. Players will receive a boost to level 70 for those who have not played Burning Crusade Classic, achievements, an improved Barber Shop and of course the new zones Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord. However, the Dungeon Finder from the original expansion does not return.
