What is WoW FAQ’s?
WoW FAQ’s is a fan-based website dedicated to the online MMORPG game World of Warcraft (WoW). The intention is to have a central hub for the most common questions, related to WoW, that are being asked constantly in various forums online.
What is World of Warcraft?
World of Warcraft is a popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game that is based in the Warcraft Universe that was created by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth game that is set in that universe, and the game takes place on a fantasy world called Azeroth.
It is set about four years after the events which were described in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, which was a strategy game set in that universe.
World of Warcraft was announced in 2001, and it was released to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Warcraft series of games, on November 23, 2004.
Since launch, Blizzard has invested heavily in the game, releasing seven expansion packs over the last 15 years.
Expansion packs advance the story-line, add new playable races and areas, and new dungeons for players to try.
World of Warcraft is one of the most successful MMORPGs in the world.
It peaked at a player count of almost 10 million in 2009, with 100 million registered accounts in 2014, and it grossed more than $9.23 billion revenues in 2017, which allowed it to break the record for the highest grossing computer game of all time.
Not all players like the push for expansion packs, however, and in 2017 Blizzard announced that they will be releasing a classic version of the game which will allow players to enjoy a ‘pre-expansion pack’ experience of the game in the modern day.
WoW Classic, as it was dubbed, is due to be released in Summer 2019, and will be included in the subscription for the current, expanded game.
