Blizzard has released preliminary World of Warcraft 5.3 patch notes.
The game update will include a new Battleground, a fresh Arena, new Scenarios, bug fixes and more.
Players can now sample the update on the Public Test Realms. The patch notes aren't final, with Blizzard saying "a great deal" could yet change before final release.
As of December 31 last year, World of Warcraft's subscriber base stood at 9.6 million, according to Activision Blizzard. And this week, ahead of the release of the company's first quarter financial results on May 9, Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz predicted that WoW "probably lost 200-300k subscribers" during the first three months of 2013.
