It was inevitable.

Selfies have been added to Blizzard's World of Warcraft as part of their latest patch, currently being tested in the game's Public Test Realms.

Patch 6.1 comes with a long list of notes, the most notable of which being the addition of a new S.E.L.F.I.E Camera, and Twitter integration.

Like your phone camera in Grand Theft Auto 5 or Link's in The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD, the camera will allow you get a new perspective on the world of Azeroth, and show off your avatar as well.

You don't get the S.E.L.F.I.E Camera automatically however. Players must complete a level 100 mission called Field Photography to get it, with an upgrade available as a prize for completing a later mission called Lens Some Hands.

There are emotes you can use too and an Instagram-style filter that can be applied.

As for the patch's Twitter integration, the overdue feature will allow players to tweet their actions from within the game – say if you kill a raid boss or earn an achievement for example – with an accompanying screenshot if you so choose.

The selfie above taken within the game comes from Reddit user Arionii.

Last year World of Warcraft released its Warlords of Dreanor expansion, which introduced major changes to Blizzard's ever-expanding MMO.
