As Eurogamer's Oli Welsh explained back in September, World of Warcraft: Legion had an incredible launch. Artifact weapons, class halls, loads and loads of demons - it had it all.
When it comes to video games, World of Warcraft is probably my biggest cultural blind spot. I'm aware of how significant Blizzard's MMO is and how much it's impacted lives across the world (who isn't) but beyond that, I'm a babe lost in the woods.
Gamescom is a beautiful, hot, noisy mess of a show and an utter delight to visit. Sadly, not everyone can go - and this year, that includes me. But thankfully, we packed Chris Bratt off to tour the show with a camera in hand to capture just what attending the world's biggest gaming show is like.
When Blizzard announced that it was introducing a new special weekend event to World of Warcraft called Timewalking, there was a ripple of excitement in the Eurogamer office - one that, for once, reached beyond the corner where crusty old diehards John Bedford and yours truly sit with our fingers permanently hovering over (and sometimes accidentally slipping onto) the resubscribe button.
