World of Warcraft: Dragonflight will add playable and rideable dragons

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight returns the MMO to its origins, welcoming back dragons (in playable and rideable forms) and Classic-style talent trees, and adding a new set of zones to explore. The expansion doesn’t have a release date, but will enter alpha soon, according to Blizzard’s announcement stream.

Where does WoW: Dragonflight take place?

Dragonflight is set on the Dragon Isles, a location that’s been essentially a myth for most of WoW’s history, hidden away in game files and occasionally mentioned in dialogue as the game aged. You’ll dig into the history of the ancient dragonflights and their kingdom, learn what has happened to them over the last 10,000 years, and try to make alliances with them to combat new threats.
