World of Warcraft : Roaming around the world of fantasy
WoW , is world’s most subscribed MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role playing game) and holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG by subscribers. A subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Blizzard Entertainment launched this game. First introduced in 1994, as Warcraft: orcs and Humans, gaining the excitement of gamers, it is the fourth released game set in the fantasy Warcraft universe. On the 10th anniversary, November 23, 2004, of the Warcraft franchise, Blizzard Entertainment released World of Warcraft.
The Burning Crusade was the first expansion of the game, released on January 16, 2007. The second expansion set was Wrath of the Linch King was released on November 13, 2008 and the third expansion set Cataclysm expected to release later this year. Before launching the third release, crazy gamers want the announcement for fourth launch too.
In September 2001, World of Warcraft was first announced by Blizzard. The 3-D graphics in WoW use elements of the proprietary graphics engine originally used in Warcraft III. The game was designed to be an open environment where players are allowed to do what they please. Quests are optional and were designed to help guide players, allow character development and to spread characters across different zones to try to avoid what developers called ‘player collision’. The game interface allows players to customize appearance and controls and to install add-ons and other modifications.
Talk about the next expansion set of WoW. Which is based on an ancient evil lies dormant within Deepholm, the domain of earth in the Elemental Plane. Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire. Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to Azeroth, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents. As the Horde and Alliance race to the epicenter of the cataclysm, the kingdoms of Azeroth will witness seismic shifts in power, the kindling of a war of the elements, and the emergence of unlikely heroes who will rise up to protect their scarred and broken world from utter devastation. Gamers are waiting for the third expansion to be launched.
One more interesting thing about WoW is this that in April 2008, World of Warcraft was estimated to hold 62 percent of the MMORPG subscription market and now wait for the next record break with the launching of third expansion.
