World of Warcraft posts a survival guide for patch 8.1.5 incoming on March 12

Bart, stop creating a diversion!

Do you feel sufficiently prepared for the arrival of patch 8.1.5. in World of Warcraft? Complete with new allied races, new profession-based questlines, and the new Crucible of Storms raid? If not, then you may wish to peruse the game’s new survival guide for the patch, available in both video form just below or in the shape of a text overview. There’s a lot going on, even in what’s billed as more of an interstitial update.

If, however, you’re less worried about the next patch and more about the overarching health of the company behind the game that’s patch… well, we’re afraid we don’t precisely have good news, as it turns out that a quarter of Activision Blizzard’s savage layoff sweep hit Blizzard specifically. It mostly hit the game’s IT and marketing departments, as stated previously, but it’s still a substantial loss for the studio in terms of talent and ability. Our sympathy goes out to all those affected by the layoffs, even several weeks out.
