It is now available World of Warcraft®: Dragonflight, the ninth expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s globally acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game. The heroes of the Horde and the Alliance return to Azeroth to explore the mythological Dragon Isles and their ancient secrets, where the Aspects have returned to reclaim their realm and ancestral home.
“Dragonflight goes back to the roots of what all World of Warcraft players love: exploration, customization, and the sense of wonder that unfolds as you discover the world and its stories,” said Mike Ybarra, president from Blizzard Entertainment.

The new continent of the Dragon Islands is made up of five lush zones among the greatest in all of WoW history: the Forgotten Reach, the new starting zone of the drachthyr; the primal Shores of Awakening, an untamed land brimming with elemental energies; the Ohn’ahra Plains, home of the proud clans of centaurs; the extensive Azure Lands, where tuskarr fish among arcane ruins; and the glowing Thaldrazsusthe seat of power of the Aspect dragons and their capital: Valdrakken.
