World of Warcraft developer Blizzard says that after Plunderstorm, more experimental content and experiences are coming to the game.


  • Blizzard plans to continue adding experimental game modes to World of Warcraft to keep players engaged.
  • Plunderstorm, a battle royale-style mode, received positive feedback, leading to hints of more content in that vein.
  • Despite past issues, Blizzard aims to regain players’ trust with new content like Dragonflight Season 4.

Blizzard has more plans to bring future experimental game modes and content to World of Warcraft. The new experiences will be added in future World of Warcraft updates and seasons to keep players interested and engaged with the game.

World of Warcraft has changed much since its original launch to keep the experience fresh for players new and old, and one notable addition came with the recent version 10.2.6 update. That update brought the limited World of Warcraft game mode Plunderstorm. Taking after the popularity of battle royale-style games, Plunderstorm challenged players to use fresh characters and abilities to compete against other players for plunder in a pirate-themed free-for-all.


World of Warcraft Players Discover Plunderstorm Exploit After Recent Hotfix

After a recent hotfix, some World of Warcraft fans have discovered an exploit in Plunderstorm that has some game-ruining ramifications.

Blizzard Hints at New Experimental World of Warcraft Content and Game Modes Following Plunderstorm

It seems that the positive reception to Plunderstorm among World of Warcraft players made an impression on Blizzard, as the developer issued a statement about the event on the official World of Warcraft website. In the post, Blizzard thanks players for trying out the mode and sharing their stories and feedback. Dated March 28, 2024, the statement also promoted the March 30 Plunderstorm Creator Royale, a World of Warcraft Plunderstorm tournament featuring over 60 community content creators and streamers.

The statement also teased future developments, saying that Plunderstorm isn’t the only thing the team “wants to try” in World of Warcraft. To that end, Blizzard said the upcoming fourth season of the Dragonflight expansion is in testing on the Public Test Realm (PTR), the server used to trial new content before putting it live for all. Blizzard said it would have more news to share “soon” about the team’s next experimental experience. The statement also referred to new PvE-focused content coming soon, as development proceeds on the World of Warcraft:The War Within expansion.

Blizzard seems to be making waves with its attempts to introduce fresh gameplay into World of Warcraft via experimental modes. Despite some hiccups like the discovery of exploits and other tuning issues, Plunderstorm saw huge improvements made to it as the team gathered feedback and observed player behavior. Players seemed to lose trust in Blizzard after the problems with the Shadowlands expansion, resulting in a significant drop in subscriptions. But with more changes and new content coming in Dragonflight Season 4, Blizzard is showing that it internalized the negative feedback from the reception of Shadowlands and corrected its course. Time will tell if that correction can show further returns for The War Within and beyond.
