New World of Warcraft Expansion Means New Source of Inspiration

Blizzard Entertainment just announced their newest expansion to the World of Warcraft universe today at GamesCom.

Legion promises to be an exciting new adventure, with an action-packed story that will bring about the largest demon invasion the world has ever seen.

I discussed in an earlier post about how I’m working on a novel, and that World of Warcraft is one of my primary influences. I’m not sure how much this influence will manifest itself in the final manuscript, but the game’s incredibly imagery resonates with me and is the reference I pull when I envision my own world. I also enjoy listening to the soundtrack while writing.

This new expansion presents a whole new suite of gorgeous reference material, including the new Broken Isles continent. It may be a while before I get to play it, but I will enjoy exploring the world through the artwork in the meantime.
