World Of Warcraft: Dragonflight Expansion

Blizzard has brought excitement to the World of Warcraft (WoW) playerbase with the announcement of the newest expansion – Dragonflight. This is the latest expansion to WoW since Shadowlands in 2020 which disappointed and drove many players away from the game despite its pre-release hype. This time, Blizzard’s announcement sounded more promising for the future of the game. 

The Dragonflight expansion is expected to be released sometime in Q1 of 2023 and takes place in a new area called the Dragon Isles – this area includes four new zones. There are plans for major revamps to core features such as the UI, HUD, and Talent System.
