Even though the Mists of Pandaria expansion was just released, World of Warcraft will already be seeing new content with the impending release of the 5.1 update. You didn’t expect Blizzard to rest on their laurels fresh off of selling 2.7 million copies of the latest expansion did you? While work on the 5.1 patch is well underway, the company has released a few details about what new things you can expect from World of Warcraft.
Blizzard first plans on introducing the 5.1 patch by releasing a build of it in the Public Test Realms. Though that build isn’t going to include all the content from the patch, it will give you a taste of some of the major new features. One new addition will affect the ever-growing rivalry between the Horde and Alliance forces. Players will soon be encountering expeditions from both factions who hope to conquer the continent of Pandaria and transform the land. Players who wish to take their own part in this conflict will find daily quest hubs and faction reputations to provide more reasons to adventure. Wrathion will also offer more tasks for players wanting even more Legendary gear.
No other details were given about the patch notes except that it was only a taste of things to come and, thankfully, more will be announced soon.
