8:13 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Hot on the heels of the release of the 1.11 patch for World of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment is offering a glimpse of what the next patch will bring to the extremely popular MMORPG. The 1.12 patch will introduce cross-realm battlegrounds for the first time, allowing players from different realms to face off in the Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, and Arathi Basin.

Fans of non-battlground player versus player interaction will be given new content in the form of World PvP, combat which will involve battles over resources and strategic positions all across Azeroth.

Cross-Realm Battlegrounds
For the first time in the history of World of Warcraft, you will be able to face off against players from other realms in the Battlegrounds. Coming in patch 1.12 are cross-realm PvP Battlegrounds, linking Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, and Arathi Basin so that players from several realms will be combined into one huge matchmaking pool. Replenish your mana, sharpen your blades, and get ready for some brand-new challengers!

World PvP
While the Battlegrounds are about to receive a major upgrade of their own, players interested in World PvP will be glad to hear that patch 1.12 will introduce a brand-new type of PvP content to the game. The stage is set for intense, objective-based land battles as Horde and Alliance vie for control over important strategic positions and resources around Azeroth. Stay tuned for more news about these new world PvP enhancements coming to World of Warcraft.

To learn more about the upcoming additions, which will include a Rogue talent update, head over to the official WoW site listed below.
