Dragonflight brings more new areas for players to explore. 

Blizzard Entertainment

Blizzard Entertainment announced two new expansions to its long-running massively multiplayer online RPG World of Warcraft Tuesday, although one was already released more than a decade ago. 

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is the newest expansion for the MMORPG and will introduce players to a new race: the Dracthyr. The dragon-human hybrids can join either the Horde or the Alliance and can only pick the Evoker class, which can make use of offensive or healing magic. Dragonflight's setting is the Dragon Isles, a land that has awoken after 10,000 years of being dormant. Also included in the expansion is Dragonriding, a new way of traversing across the isles with players having the option to customize their own drake.   

In other news from Blizzard, today saw the announcement of Wrath of the Lich King for WoW Classic, a remastered version of the game as it was when it launched. Players can once again experience the expansion as if it was 2008 all over again.

Both expansions are set to release later in 2022. Beta sign-ups for Dragonflight and Wrath of the Lich King are currently available on their respective sites, although no date was set for when testing would start.
