Posted on January 3, 2013, CJ Miozzi Next World of Warcraft Patch to Include a MOBA?
World of Warcraft‘s patch 5.2 is now available on the Public Test Realms, allowing players to test “a massive new raid dungeon, a multi-faceted new quest hub, Pet Battle improvements, new world bosses, significant class balance changes, brand new pets and mounts, assorted bug fixes, and more.” But more interesting is the apparent leak of “Defense of the Alehouse,” a new battleground that seems fit for the MOBA genre.
Check out this video overview of the leaked map, pictured above:
To our understanding, the video author data mined assets from the patch and compiled them in 3D Studio Max to achieve what’s presented — this isn’t the final look of the map. Nonetheless, the title, coupled with the map’s layout and a size suggesting 5v5 gameplay, points to MOBA.
