World of Warcraft’s Big 7.1 Update Comes Out This Month, Watch Developer Q&A Here Preview

World of Warcraft‘s 7.1 patch, called Return to Karazhan, will arrive on October 25, Blizzard Entertainment has announced.

This patch, which was announced all the way back in August–before Legion even came out–brings back the titular area as a five-player dungeon with nine bosses. Additionally, the patch introduces a small raid amidst The Emerald Nightmare and The Nighthold that’s supposed to bring the Stormheim story to an end. Patch 7.1 also includes outdoor Suramar content that’s part of the Nightfallen story.

Though the patch isn’t officially out yet, you can try it right now on World of Warcraft’s PTR. Check out the video above to see a preview of Return to Karazhan’s content.

You can also watch the video below to see World of Warcraft’s new director, Ion Hazzikostas, answer questions about the patch. Hazzikostas was named World of Warcraft’s new director this week, replacing Tom Chilton, who is moving to a mysterious new project within Blizzard.

World of Warcraft’s newest expansion, Legion, came out at the end of August. It sold 3.3 million copies in its first 24 hours, matching the record set by previous expansions, including 2010’s Cataclysm.
