World of Warcraft Prepares to Celebrate its 10th Anniversary with…Corgis

on August 7, 2014 6:57 AM

Since its debut in 2004, World of Warcraft has taken players into a massive world and supplied them with hundreds of raids, quests, and items to collect, and now the massive MMO will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a few goodies in store for players.

In a new blog post on Battle.net, developer and publisher Blizzard revealed a few of the updates and additions in store for players during the game’s 10th Anniversary this November, including a new Team Deathmatch-style Battleground that will “recapture that feeling” of early PvP matches between Alliance and Horde players at Tarren Mill vs Southshore. In addition, the popular raiding spot Molten Core will be getting a special 40-player Raid Finder for max level players, which gives an Achievement and special mount.

Finally (and probably the most cute announcement you’ll experience for the day), the update will also include a special new pet: the Molten Corgi. The fiery pet will be available to anyone that logs in during the 10-year anniversary event, and might subsequently die of its cuteness afterward.

Stay tuned for more updates and information on the 10th Anniversary of World of Warcraft as it arrives.
