Goat Simulator Satirizes World Of Warcraft With An MMO Expansion

Back in September we took a look at Goat Simulator, a bizarre spin on the old Tony Hawk games that let you run rampant as an invincible goat in a small rural town.

It’s a great game that’s easy to get into if you’re the kind of gamer who likes to be thrust into a world without being told what to do, discovering fun opportunities as you go. Unfortunately, the game world itself was quite small — after a few hours, you could see the entire map and knock out every objective.

On Thursday, Goat Simulator’s developers are releasing a new expansion that will give fans of the game a whole new world to explore (and completely destroy) as one of the game’s absurdly powerful goats.

Instead of giving players more of the same modern setting, the new expansion riffs on tropes from massively-multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft. The buildings and enemies are inspired by the fantasy genre, and along with the several goat skins from the initial release, you’ll be able to play as several typical role-playing classes, including Warrior, Rogue, Magician, and Hunter, with the additional “weird option” of, and I am not kidding, a Microwave with humanoid legs.

This update won’t actually let you play with thousands of other players at once (the game is doing well, but not that well),  but you will have the chance to mess around in the new fantasy environment with friends on the same PC when the MMO expansion hits Steam on November 20.
