World of Warcraft developer Blizzard confirms that the upcoming Legion expansion might be playable at BlizzCon later this year, especially since it's currently in an internal alpha test phase. However, the studio is still tight-lipped about the big add-on.
Blizzard shared quite a lot of different details about its upcoming projects at Gamescom 2015 earlier this year. Among them, the biggest was World of Warcraft: Legion, the next expansion for the long-running multiplayer online role-playing game.
The studio shared plenty of details about the new mechanics, the Demon Hunter class, or the increased level cap, and now it's gotten back to focusing on the final stages of its development.
According to Game Director Tom Chilton, who talks with MMOGames, the title is currently in an internal alpha stage and it's scheduled to reach beta status later this year.
If everything goes smoothly, Chilton expects that Legion might be playable, in one form or another, at BlizzCon this fall. However, he can't promise anything, but he did say that it would be showcased during various events to fans from all over the world.
At the same time, he also pledges to share more details and new mechanics in the following months, so that fans can have a better idea of the expansion.
Right now, World of Warcraft: Legion is set to launch next year for the popular MMORPG.
