Hey, there’s a new World of Warcraft expansion coming out! It features an invading demon army, and massive-scale fantasy warfare is pretty cool. You might even say it’s what Warcraft is known for. In a recent interview, designer Jeremy Feasel laid out what some of the expansion’s new features will look like.
The invading demon armies won’t just be huge spawns of dangerous foes, and instead will be spread out more like an actual army. “We started looking at the Burning Legion from the concept of what would an RTS army be like, what would they do, how would they invade Azeroth?” To that end, barracks, defensive turrets, and a wide variety of tactically-appropriate units from footmen to magic will be involved.

There’s also the matter of corrupting human players. “When the Legion invasion starts, you’re going to start to get dark whispers inside of the major cities, players will start turning against each other, they may even get ultimate power and turn into a dreadlord themselves, it kinda depends on how easy they are to manipulate. That’s the insidious side of the demons that we wanted to show, they’re not just militaristic, that they can get under your skin and turn you against your own allies.”
This all comes courtesy of an interview with PCGamesN. Sounds like some fun stuff for an MMO to tackle, though I’m sure it will serve to spark more than a few pre-WoW Warcraft fans to once again hunger for a new RTS.
