First players finally collect every World of Warcraft achievement

First players finally collect every World of Warcraft achievement

One of the best/worst things about an MMO is the fact that there's not really a way to "beat" the game. Sure, you can reach the max level, beat all the dungeons and raids, and collect the best gear. But there's no real ending. Well, two players have come as close as possible to actually beating World of Warcraft, if there is such a thing.

Blizzard’s crystal ball: mobile is the future, not (yet) VR

Blizzard’s crystal ball: mobile is the future, not (yet) VR

With all the hype and talk revolving around virtual reality these days, some even coming from the smartphone market, you'd think that VR is the future of gaming. Well, that might be true to some extent, but not in the near future, and definitely not yet for one huge game publisher. Blizzard, who just celebrated its 25th year in the biz, has given a glimpse of its near future, and it is one where the world's fifth largest gaming company focuses more on mobile and not on VR. At least not yet.

World of Warcraft might be free with your movie ticket

World of Warcraft might be free with your movie ticket

To say that World of Warcraft has been a success would be one of the biggest understatements in gaming. As it stands, the only PC game to beat it in sales is Minecraft. So it's a safe bet that if you've got a strong interest in the game, you've probably tested the waters, or are possibly a recovering addict. And that makes Blizzard's latest move a strange one.

World of Warcraft announces a complete PVP overhaul

World of Warcraft announces a complete PVP overhaul

I used to play WoW quite a bit back in the day, and I've been clean for a couple of years now. One aspect of the game that rarely appealed to me was PVP. Mostly because I've been an adult for the entire time the game has been out, and never had time to keep up on it. And we all know that if you don't PVP regularly, you won't have the right gear to be effective in battle. But that's all about to change in Legion.

Diablo’s Treasure Goblins show up in WoW: Legion alpha

Two of Blizzard's most-successful IP's are of course, Warcraft and Diablo. Both universes have some great games, and the current iteration of both are still highly popular (even if WoW keeps losing subscribers). What's interesting is that Blizzard seems to be pulling popular features from one game, and porting them over to the other.

WoW to get a wardrobe update in Legion

WoW to get a wardrobe update in Legion

When you play an MMO like World of Warcraft, you always had to choose between wearing gear that looked good, and gear that actually helped you.

That's why Blizzard introduced their transmogrification system. And that system is getting an overhaul in the next expansion.

World of Warcraft turns 11, celebrates with player gifts

It's hard to believe that World of Warcraft has been out for 11 years now. Well, technically its birthday isn't until November 23rd, but it's close enough. The game helped redefine what an MMO was (for better or worse), and is the benchmark against which all other MMOs are currently compared. Blizzard might not be going as crazy with their celebration as they did last year, but here's a look at what you can expect if you login to the game over the next couple of weeks.

Blizzcon is this weekend, which means there will be a whole host of announcements from Blizzard. While we can speculate on the kinds of updates we'll see to the Diablo and Starcraft franchises, we already have an idea of what to expect when it comes to World of Warcraft.
