The World of Warcraft has a tremendous fan following around the world. The multiplayer online role-playing game was released by California-based Blizzard Entertainment in 2004. One of the biggest franchises in the segment, the game is played by more than 5 million subscribers each month. Those that have played the game know how vast and addictive it is. And for this immersive experience, the game’s coders had to write a staggering 5.5 million lines of code. The development took about 5 years. The popularity subsequently motivated the developers to introduce expansion packs every two years. The list includes Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, Battle for Zeroth and Shadowlands. The latest release making WoW more exciting is the Burning Crusade Classic (2021).

These worlds are filled with strong characters and rich environments. You can choose from the two factions – Alliance and the Horde. You can then proceed to select one of the races of Azeroth and must assign a class to the player from the eleven available. The races for the Alliance consist of Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes, Night Elfs, among others. The Horde has Orcs, Tauren, Trolls, Undead and Blood Elfs. Players start at level one and gain experience (XP) as they complete each quest. It is currently available for Windows and Mac operating system.
