“World of Warcraft Legion, the latest expansion to the biggest MMO out there, is finally available. It was released on August 30 for Mac and Windows and can be purchased directly through Battle.net,” Ric Molina reports for Mac Gamer HQ.

“Legion also introduces game-changing features, such as: New legendary Artifact weapons; New PvP-specific talents; A new world-scaling leveling system; And Class Order Halls,” Molina reports. “This is enough to make WoW Legion one of the most exciting Mac games this year. Nearly every system has been overhauled and critics so far are liking it. A lot.”

“I’m glad to confirm the first Mac game to support Metal is finally here. WoW now has a version that officially supports Metal and the improvements are impressive.
