A World of Warcraft parody for Goat Simulator is releasing as a free expansion in an upcoming patch Nov. 20  on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux.

Goat MMO Simulator is a humorous take on the MMO genre by Coffee Stain Studios, a Swedish independent developer. The game is free downloadable content that requires Goat Simulator to play, which costs $9.99.

The free expansion will turn Goat Simulator into an MMO that has five playable classes, which includes a rouge, magician, hunter, warrior and even as a microwave. The player will have a 101 level cap, one higher than the max level in the new World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion. Gameplay will also feature warfare between goats and sheep as well as dozens of different quests.

Patch 1.2 is the second release of free content to the satirical game playing as a goat with ragdoll physics in a sandbox world filled with intentional glitches.

Goat MMO Simulator will have full controller support, Steam Achievements, Trading Cards and Workshop creations. Coffee Stain Studios promises on the game’s Steam page that the expansion has “MMO simulation so good you’ll think it’s real.”

Described by the developer as the world’s dumbest game, Goat Simulator released on April 1. Since the game’s launch it has sold more than a million copies and has more than 500,000 sales of the iOS and Android versions that released in September. The game made more money in its first four months of availability than the studio’s previous four years with its tower defense games like Sanctum and Sanctum 2. A port is being developed by Double Eleven for Xbox One.
