Battle for Azeroth Expansion Announced

Overwatch Ana

A year ago, there were even rumors that a revival of the classic World of Warcraft server was in the works. Ultimately, Classic could possibly make up for Blizzard's shutdown of unofficial vanilla servers in the past and help it maintain an already dwindling subscriber base. The Horde (the "outcasts" of Azeroth, the orcs who came from a different world mostly) and the Alliance (mostly the humans) hate each other, and so, with this expansion, will go at each other's throats.

To sum it up, all players in all realms will have the option to enable or disable PvP on their servers at any given time.

"Fans of World of Warcraft around the world, we hear you", Brack told the audience.

In addition to the news about World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, the seventh expansion to the game, Blizzard had a very special announcement for fans who have been playing since the beginning. The time for compromise has passed, however, and now Azeroth is on the brink of world war. Finally, the level cap has been raised to 120, and purchasers of the expansion can boost right to level 110 and dive into the new content. Battle for Azeroth will revisit the central conflict of the Warcraft series, the Alliance versus the Horde, but along with it comes a wide array of features brand new to the experience.

Announced during the Blizzcon 2017 opening ceremony, World of Warcraft Classic is now in development, although a specific release date remains unknown.

Recruit Allied Races: Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities.

The great news is this new feature will also work with WoW's previous expansions. Island Expeditions will be dynamic, variable missions which set players out in groups of three to explore uncharted areas and race against the enemy faction to secure resources. It's possible the developer will announce more details at BlizzCon, which we'll add here as we get them.

Blizzard did not give an official release date for Battle for Azeroth, but don't expect it before spring 2018 at the earliest.
