At the latest Blizzcon 2016, the game director of Blizzard displays new adventure soon available for World of Warcraft. At the convention, there was some news in regards to Blizzard’s flagship MMO. The new patches soon to appear on the market will include micro-holidays and epic climbs. Any curious fan can take the advantage to see the new legendary artifacts which will be introduced in the game.
To acquire more information about the new features of the match, Ion Hazzikostas, who is the director of the game, shared some new information with the fans. Regarding the new micro-holidays, Hazzikostas argued that these new features will appear annually. The first time it will appear, it will be on January 22nd, on Ahn’Qiraj Remembrance Day. This will happen every year starting with 2017.
The new ideas which were used to develop the in-world holidays were built as parallel to major real-worlds holidays. Hazzikostas has revealed that Winter Veil stands for Christmas and the Lunar Festival stands for Chinese New Year. He also stated that they were successful when testing the Day of the Dead, willing to work on the development of more such features.
As soon as the development team had the idea of the new 7.15 patch, they wanted to emphasize the content. Game developers needed to build and fix all separable and scalable features to make sure the patch will be available soon enough. Their purpose was to develop nine micro-holidays. Unfortunately, they managed to produce only six. Hazzikostas is very optimistic, and he is confident that he and his team will soon develop the next three and they will launch them in the next patch.
The team was roaming back and forth thinking about the development of new patches for World of Warcraft or only producing consistent pieces. Hazzikostas has argued that the all agreed to launch annual patches, leaving the option of regular expansions aside. He claimed that a year does not represent enough time to create a new worthy expansion for World of Warcraft.
If the quality of the new features cannot attain the maximum rank, then there is no point in dispatching an annual expansion. The game developers are focusing on producing the right thing for their gamers. They need to make sure every fan of their game who has a subscription to World of Warcraft is always anxious to test the new feature and the new patch implemented.
