Blizzard announced today that a new content update for World of Warcraft is now available. As the team noted, with today’s launch of World of Warcraft Patch 6.0.2: The Iron Tide, the Iron Horde’s invasion of Azeroth has begun. This content update serves as a pre-launch patch for latest expansion of WoW that is coming this November.
Features introduced with today’s Iron Tide content update include:
· “Iron Horde Incursion” World Event: players looking to upset the Iron Horde invasion can journey to the Blasted Lands to face down the onslaught and venture into the revamped five-player version of the Upper Blackrock Spire dungeon
· New Character Models: several of the game’s original races are new and improved, with increased resolution as well as updated animations and facial expressions
· Interface Improvements: questing is now easier than ever with an updated quest log and inventory changes, including a Toy Box for the fun items players acquire through their adventures
· Character and Class Changes: myriad character- and class-specific updates are now live, making this a great time for players to refamiliarize themselves with their characters ahead of the expansion’s November 13 launch
Full details on the changes and new features added to the game today can be found in the patch notes.
In addition – and in order to make the transition to Warlords of Draenor as seamless as possible for current and returning players – all previous expansions have been added to all existing World of Warcraft accounts. This means that moving forward, all current subscribers and everyone reactivating their subscription will automatically be up-to-date with the latest content through Mists of Pandaria.
