World of Warcraft: Warlords Of Draenor opening area revealed

The Tanaan Jungle features in the next World Of Warcraft expansion

Blizzard has revealed a location from the upcoming World Of Warcraft: Warlords Of Draenor expansion.

Tanaan Jungle is the expansion's first major area, where the player will encounter a number of orc heroes and warlords such as Grommash Hellscream of the Warsong clan, Kilrogg Deadeye of the Bleeding Hollow clan and Kargath Bladefist of the Shattered Hand clan.


"Your first steps into Draenor will be within the wilds of Tanaan Jungle, where the Iron Horde has staged their assault on Azeroth," Blizzard says on its official Warcraft blog.

"With these new attacks, you'll be charged with leading the greatest heroes of this age in the counterstrike. This is an invasion that can't be ignored and the Horde and the Alliance are both set on taking the offensive before it's too late.


"Shutting down the Dark Portal is your first priority, but the mission may quickly go awry.

"Even if you do manage to seal the portal, your party will still be trapped in the middle of a hostile army.Your only option is to fight your way out.

"You might even be forced to accept the help of the infamous Gul'dan. Fortunately, you'll also have luminaries such as Thrall, Khadgar, and Vindicator Maraad by your side.

"You'll also meet some new heroes who will take up arms for you: the brutal Frostwolf warrior Ga'nar, and a promising young draenei acolyte named Yrel."

Warlords of Draenor is the next major WoW expansion, and will explore the franchise's history across the new continent of Draenor. It will also increase World of Warcraft's level cap to 100 and offer players the option to immediately boost one new or existing character to level 90.

The expansion will also introduce visual upgrades that'll increase the polygon counts of some player models more than fivefold, Blizzard confirmed earlier this year.
