Dragonflight’s 6 2023 Content Updates Detailed, Trading Post Coming Soon: World of Warcraft
The World of Warcraft: Dragonflight expansion was released in November, but that does not mean there will be no further scaly additions to the game. Blizzard has revealed the specifics of its plans for Dragonflight until 2023. These plans call for the game to get two significant seasonal upgrades containing new zones, raids, professions, and other content.
At the time that passes between seasons, there will be more minor content upgrades, the first of which will introduce the Trading Post system at the beginning of 2023. The complete Dragonflight 2023 calendar is available for your perusal down below.
Here is further information on what Blizzard has planned for 2023…
“Throughout 2023, we want to roll out a total of six content patches, each of which will be approximately distributed at the same time. This will include two significant updates, which are the traditional pillars of our expansions—with new zones, raids, and seasonal rewards—but in between those, we want to keep expanding and evolving our world with recent world events, updates to systems, and evergreen holidays, new dungeon experiences, new narrative chapters and cinematics that can serve either as epilogues or as prologues to the next major step in the adventure, and, most importantly of all, more opportunities for us to respond to the feedback of our players.
We recently announced the forthcoming 10.0.5 content update, which is expected to go live early in the following year. This update will bring the Trading Post system, which enables players of all playstyles to earn a wide range of fun cosmetic rewards.
Additionally, it will (finally!) enable players to acquire Poor-quality and Common-quality items as transmog appearances, which is ideal for those who prefer a somewhat more understated look. Finally, it will add some new world content.
As soon as that is in your possession, we will make the 10.0.7 content upgrade available on our Public Test Realm. In patch 10.0.7, a new quest campaign and repeatable world content will be set in the Forbidden Reach. The quest campaign will follow them instead as they return to their place of imprisonment (along with some unexpected visitors) to discover more about their past and their future.
This content will provide the groundwork for the subsequent significant chapter of Dragonflight, and by the time it’s over, it should be abundantly clear where we need to head next. Alongside the release of this new material, we want to additionally implement questlines for Human and Orc cosmetic Heritage Armor, update some of our recurrent holidays, and add more features.
In the second part of this year, there will also be a content update version 10.1.5 and a content update version 10.1.7. These upgrades will bridge the gap between our second and third significant improvements. We don’t want a set formula for the quantity or structure of these updates, but the end aim is more World of Warcraft. This includes more stories, content, rewards, events, and technological advancements, with less downtime between each one.
I don’t want to give anything away, and I’m sure there will be at least a couple of shocks along the line that nobody anticipates. I don’t want to spoil anything. And some of the details haven’t been finalized yet, because we’ll be using your feedback to help determine precisely what we should focus on in these upgrades.
Following the filing of a lawsuit against the company by the State of California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which alleged widespread instances of gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment at the Call of Duty publisher, Activision Blizzard has been hit with several additional lawsuits and other forms of legal action.
