'World Of Warcraft' Introduces Two Upcoming Playable Races

While World of Warcraft Classic might have been hogging the spotlight recently, Blizzard has absolutely no intentions of ditching the core World of Warcraft experience any time soon, as evidenced by the wealth of features confirmed to be coming in the massive new Visions of N'Zoth 8.3 update.

The heroes will get some outside help in the form of Legendary cloaks but also with the two Allied Races that are joining the fray - Vulpera and Mechagnomes. The two races were shown off as non-playable races in Battle for Azeroth but in the new update will become fully playable.

The new races were the first surprise in the 18-minute developer update, the second the director unveiled the next chapter after the events of update 8.2.

You the player will be exploring the Eldritch dimension to battle the Lovecraftian monsters in a new realm.

As comes from its name, the update will put the forces of the Alliance and the Horde against the unleashed Old God N'zoth.

The replace may also restore the Vale of Everlasting Blossoms in Pandaria (residence to the large pandas that had been earlier winners of the "cutest Warcraft race" award) and the N'Zoth invasion of Uldum. These solo campaigns are centered around potential futures where N'Zoth wins and alters Stormwind and Ogrimmar. With the Dire Maul dungeon set to be added to Classic on October 15, ahead of the "Phase 2" content period still on track for later this year.

Although an official release date hasn't been given for the update yet, we expect that it'll be available in the PTR for the game sometime later today.
