World Of Warcraft Expansion To Be Announced Next Week

World Of Warcraft is getting a new expansion. Blizzard has confirmed it will announce details of a new expansion for its hugely popular MMO role-playing game next week at Gamescom in Germany. According to a post on Battle.net, Blizzard will live stream the announcement next week for the whole world to watch on August 6.

“Join us Thursday, August 6 at 9 a.m. PDT for a special World of Warcraft event streamed live from Gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany—where we’ll be unveiling the next chapter of the World of Warcraft saga…”

There’ll also be a second stream on Sunday, August 9, where the developers chat about the expansion and apparently give even more details on what’s planned. Further details on the stream will be announced later. “Stay tuned to our dedicated Gamescom page for further details on the live stream. Those who are able to join us in person at Gamescom can visit us at the Blizzard booth in hall 7.1. We hope to see you there!”

Rumours of an expansion for World Of Warcraft have been circulating ever since Blizzard filed for a trademark on “Council Of Glades,” which is expected to be the name of the expansion.

World Of Warcraft got its last update only 9 months ago. Warlords Of Draenor has only had 2 content patches and a total of three raids, which is relatively low. To put that into perspective, Blizzard usually waits around 2 years between expansions.

Even so, it’s not all that surprising that Blizzard is eager to get a new expansion out so soon. World Of Warcraft may be the most popular MMO out there, but even so, its subscription numbers have been slowly falling for some time. Whenever a new expansion is released, those subscription numbers rise, so it’s understandable that Blizzard wants to capitalise on that trend.

You can watch the live stream from Gamescom at 9am PT/1pm ET/6pm UK. The second stream on August 9 can be watched at 8am PT/12pm ET/5pm UK.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
