It's called; World of Warcraft: Legion


So what do we know about it so far? 

Blizzard released this introductory video:

The next WoW expansion was just announced at #gamescom! This is World of Warcraft: #Legion

So let's recap;


They've also released a map of the New Continent 'The Broken Isles':


As well as a preview look at the Character Models for the new Hero Class; Demon Hunters:



Update #1:

* You can start working on the flying achievement for Legion right at the start of the expansion

* Relics to increase artifact weapon power won't convert between specs, so you'll have to get both if you're multispec (other improvements to the artifact weapon will have catch-up mechanics, which we knew)

* Professions are a focus this expansion, with the largest team ever assigned to them, and will include a questline for each profession, refreshed systems, a new UI, new functionality, and expertise in individual recipes

* You get a 12th character slot on each realm


The Blizzard Webpage that breaks down all the new features is also live, at:
