Days of Wonder Announces Small World of Warcraft
Days of Wonder, publisher of mega-hits such as Memoir '44 and some railroad game, have announced Small World of Warcraft, the first game to be released as part of its collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment. Small World of Warcraft combines the mechanics of Days of Wonder's hit game Small World with the setting of Blizzard's Warcraft universe.
Days of Wonder has worked closely with Blizzard to create a game that seamlessly brings together both universes. Originally previewed at Blizzcon 2019, Small World of Warcraft allows players to compete for control of the world of Azeroth while choosing to leading races from the Alliance or the Horde paired with special powers to create unique combinations, such as Portal Mage Pandarens or Hebalist Goblins. Player will vie to occupy legendary terrain and seek control of powerful artifacts, all while managing the rise and decline of their factions. The game also features a variety of new and exclusive artwork to capture the vibrant Warcraft universe, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to veteran World of Warcraft players from around the world.
"Working alongside Blizzard has been an amazing experience. Not only did our vision for the game quickly align, but the creative work we've done together has been intense and extremely satisfying," said Adrien Martinot, head of Days of Wonder. "Blizzard allowed us to deep dive into their rich Warcraft universe, and I'm eager to see this incredible cooperation come to light when the game releases."
Small World of Warcraft is a standalone game for 2-5 players. The game is expected to be available in Summer 2020 in North America and Europe and will be available in several languages, such as English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Czeck, Slovak, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
