Blizzard recently announced a console version of World of Warcraft is in the works. It's called The Molten Core and gameplay consists of ogres, fire monsters, and other nasty f***ers duking it out in the center of the earth (I assume).
"Blizzard got its start in console gaming, and we've always been excited about returning to this arena," stated Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Additionally, we've wanted to reintroduce the 40-player raid dungeon experience for some time. With World of Warcraft: The Molten Core, we're able to do both."
No word on a drop date, but I guarantee my MMORPGROTFL playing roommate will stay up for three days playing it non-stop when it does. You should have smelled him after his last go at it -- ripe. And not strawberries and peaches ripe either, I'm talking baby shit ripe.
A ton of must see screenshots, concept art, and a link to the trailer after the jump.
Thanks to Elizabeth, who is quite the little trickster, for the tip
Also thanks to Tom and Gerry (!), who sent other April Fools' tips that I didn't have room for, for theirs
