About World of Warcraft
This game has been rated as the world’s most popular MMORPG by player count and one of the highest-grossing video game franchises of all time. Seven expansion packs have been released: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth.
It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released in 2004 to the public. The players in the game control a character avatar within a world in first-person or third-person view. You can then start exploring the landscape, fighting various monsters, and completing quests.
Realms are also categorized by language, with in-game support in the language available. When characters become developed they will gain various talents and skills. This requires the player to further define the abilities of the character being used.
In the setting, it takes place in a 3D representation of the universe that players can interact with through their characters.
WOW runs natively on both Windows and Mac OSX platforms. Boxed copies of the game use a hybrid CD to install the game, eliminating separate retail products. More About World of Warcraft.
