Blizzard Adds Six New World of Warcraft Realms

Blizzard Entertainment on Wednesday added six new realms to the list of available servers for players participating in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft. Four of them are PvP (player-versus-player) servers, which offer more opportunities for characters on the opposing Horde and Alliance sides to fight each other.

One of those PvP servers is also designated as a role-playing environment, which means characters are expected to speak as if theyire really a human paladin, orc warrior and so forth. The other two realms are normal ones that limit PvP combat.

Two of the six servers have their time set to GMT + 11, which offers players in Australia, New Zealand and Singpore better opportunities to catch world events that happen at specific times.

World of Warcraft sells for US$49.99 and costs $14.95 per month to play. Blizzard continuously adds new content to the game, and last month the company announced plans to release an expansion pack called The Burning Crusade sometime next year.
