Future has announced an international partnership with Blizzard Entertainment to publish World of Warcraft: The Magazine, the official magazine of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).
Debuting this weekend at the BlizzCon 2009 event in Anaheim, Calif., World of Warcraft: The Magazine is a new quarterly publication that covers all aspects of the MMORPG, from game content to the players themselves. Launching simultaneously in English, French, German, and Spanish editions, the new magazine will be available via subscription only, sold through World of Warcraft Account Management or direct from www.worldofwarcraftthemagazine.com. The magazine is available as a one or two-year subscription, pricing for one year is $39.95 in the US and 34.95 EUR or 29.95 GBP in Europe - two year subscription packages cost $69.95 in the US, 61.25 EUR or 52.50 GBP.
The first issue will celebrate the fifth anniversary of the release of World of Warcraft by showing how the game has evolved and taking a look into its future. In addition, the first issue will compare tactics from top guild leaders for Ulduar – helping gamers to build the best strategies for their raids.
Julian Rignall, Editorial Director of World of Warcraft: The Magazine, commented: “We’re bringing together an international team of player-writer experts to create in-depth articles about World of Warcraft’s design, art, lore and community, as well as all aspects of its gameplay. It’s really important that our magazine articulates multiple player perspectives, so that the editorial offers balanced – and sometimes even opposing – points of view on winning strategies and tactics.”
