WoW: Shadowlands may prove to be the best expansion for the game
Asmongold, a World of Warcraft streamer with over a million followers on Twitch.tv, has already played the alpha version of the game’s latest expansion, Shadowlands. In a video he posted on YouTube, he says this may be the best expansion Blizzard Entertainment has created so far.
The expansion will premiere at the end of this year.
Even though World of Warcraft turns 16 in November, the game still enjoys great popularity and a loyal community. The creators also do not let players forget the title – they regularly release extensions, diversifying the gameplay experience. The newest of them, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, will debut at the end of 2020. Streamer Asmongold has already had a chance to see the new content and has a lot to say about it.
It seems that when creating Shadowlands, the developers left behind the old patterns and started to think outside of them. They focused on the fundamental elements that make up WoW and how the player interacts with their character.
In the movie, Asmongold talks about how high expectations he has for the final version of the expansion. Already the alpha version made a great impression on him. He even claims that for the moment Shadowlands looks much better than the three previous additions.
Streamer praises Blizzard Entertainment’s approach and focus on those aspects of the game that originally attracted players to it. He enjoys the return to treatments that make the player feel his agency in the world of World of Warcraft.
Asmongold believes Shadowlands may be the best expansion for WoW.
He also believes that the developers have finally started to move in the right direction. He approves of how developers are open to suggestions and criticism on Twitter and during interviews. In his opinion, it is the cooperation between Blizzard Entertainment and players that can make Shadowlands will be the best expansion for World of Warcraft.
Asmongold also made a few comments, but they mostly related to the plot. He claims that he is not a fan of the narrative that was presented in the trailer. He would prefer N’Zoth to win and kill everyone, which would explain why the character appeared in the Shadowlands. He did not have any major comments about the mechanics and other solutions used by the developers.
