World of Warcraft, also known as WoW, is an online role-playing game that allows players to create a fantasy character, then go on quests to slay monsters and recover treasures. While playing the game, on occasion, available update patches will be downloaded automatically via Blizzard's Background Downloader. This software downloads updates slowly, so the process does not usually interfere with gameplay. If desired, it is possible to disable the feature and download update patches yourself.
