There’s less than a week to go to the release of the seventh expansion for World Of Warcraft, Battle For Azeroth. Ahead of the launch, Singaporeans fans got to immerse themselves deeper into the realm of Blizzard Entertainment’s well-loved MMORPG at a pre-launch fan party for players.Held at The Arts House last night (7 Aug), the one-night-only event gave players an exclusive meet-and-greet with World of Warcraft Game Designers Johnny Cash and John Yang. The duo shared expansion plans and fielded enthusiastic questions from the players.
But that’s not all – with both Horde and Alliance members in the audience, the battle for Azeroth raged early as heroes performed extreme feats of strength and agility to prove that their faction was better. Players took part in in archery, slinging catapults and more at the game booths, before partaking in dinner (not having to employ their cooking skill) and posing with game characters and their friends at themed photo stations. After that, they still had the chance to take a look at fan art illustrations by talents from Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong on display.
With the global launch on 14 August, I must say that this might just be the most anticipated expansion for World Of Warcraft in years. Friends who have not entered Azeroth for years are keen to dip their toes back into game – me included. And I haven’t played World Of Warcraft for years!
With the Arts House transformed into a battlefield FOR THE HORDE to go up against the Alliance, it must be said that World Of Warcraft is alive and well in Singapore. My old guild isn’t active anymore, but tell me if you’re headed back into Azeroth!
