World of Warcraft Patch Opens New Realms

WoW’s next content patch to include objective-based world PvP and cross-realm battlegrounds.

The official word is world PvP objectives will be introduced in two different zones in the game: Silithus and the Eastern Plaguelands. Each of these zones will include non-instanced PvP objectives that any player can undertake on a voluntary basis. Achieving these objectives will earn players individual and zone-wide faction benefits, as well as honour points. These two world PvP events will be active at all times.

Also, for the first time, players across different realms will be able to compete against each other in all three instanced battlegrounds: Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, and Alterac Valley. Players will be able to use battlegrounds more easily than before, fighting alongside new allies and against new enemies.

Further information will appear on WorldofWarcraft.com.
