Blizzard always likes having fun on April Fool’s Day by releasing fake news on new World of Warcraft content in development and this year is no different. Last year Blizzard announced plans to release a console version of Molten Core, this year Blizzard has announced two new World of Warcraft features allowing players to pimp their mounts and a new Dance Battle System. Click the jump for images of the fake new features in development or check out the official site for all the details.
Tired of your mount looking like every other raptor, wolf, horse, kodo, or nightsaber out there? Want to spice it up with some armor plating, a few spikes or chains, or maybe even some flaming decals? Then Z to the A to the zzber (whew, that’s a mouthful!) will be glad to welcome you to his shop where you can epic-ize your mount with some phat total pimpage! Coming in a future content patch, we plan to bring you a new feature that will allow you to alter the color, the armor, or add decorations to your in-game mounts. Simply drop in to Zazzber’s Local Fix-‘Er-Up, pay a small fee, and leave your mount there overnight. The next morning, you’ll pick up a mount that is uniquely yours!
The act of jubilant self-expression through dancing has long been an integral part of World of Warcraft’s social interactions. Now it’s been taken to a whole new level with the new Dance Battle system, coming to the game in an upcoming content patch. Combining elements of Arena competition with the dynamism and creativity of coordinated, player-controlled dance animations, Dance Battles offer a whole new kind of crew-versus-crew challenge.
