World Of Warcraft's Next Patch Adds Racing Mini-Game

World of Warcraft's Next Patch Adds Racing Mini-Game

Warlords of Draenor's first big content patch is shaping up nicely, and besides a new quest hub, redesigned crafting, a selfie camera and some new Garrison features, one of the new additions will be a racing activity.

The race's final version will be added to the Darkmoon Faire island, WoW's ever-growing, mini game-filled theme park. This one, however, looks a bit more complex and fun than tossing rings on turtles.

The main goal is to hit three posts with a special racing mount as fast as possible. Sprint boots, leaping gear and a "jump to banner" button could speed up things, while randomly placed electrical wires can stun you for a few seconds. Add the effects of some buffs and toys, and other people trying to attack you, and things could end up in a chaotic Mario Kart-like way.

Here's video recorded by zetzek on the public test realms, and a few shots via Wowhead:

    Is this really the best thing they can think of to keep people playing? Im glad i gave this shit up.

      Yeah with all due respect I don't think "Darkmoon Faire minigame" was Blizzard's answer to "HOW DO WE KEEP PEOPLE COMING BACK"
      it's just a fun little minigame.

      There are millions of subscribers, do you expect every bit of new content to be tailored to your tastes? This is just a bit of fun at the faire that happens once a month, I don't really understand your hostility.

        hes afraid that if he doesn't stay angry at the game for the small things he will resub

        No I do not expect anything to be tailored to my tastes as I stated above I gave WOW up. They would be wasting their time to cater for my tastes LOL. I understand where you are coming from there was no hostility towards anything, just glad I got out seeing all this time wasting shit to do. Seems as though they could be putting some effort into other things but this is blizzard after all.

      I KEPT COMING BACK BECAUSE OF THE SELFIE CAMERA AND THE MINI RACING!! YARGH!!

    I stopped paying/playing when the new year hit with the idea of "If 6.1 adds some interesting new content, then I'll come back". Well racing mini-games, selfie cameras, twitter integration and a bunch of balancing fixes that should have been done with 6.0 is not going to get it done.

    Maybe 6.2 will actually have something worth the money.
