World Of Warcraft Classic And Battle Of Azeroth Expansion Announced

The previous expansion, World of Warcraft: Legion, was released back in 2016, while World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor made its debut three years ago in November 2014. Alliance players can expect to forge alliances by fending off pirates and hunting giant sea monsters in Kul Tiras, whereas Horde players will gain new allies by fighting traitors and making deals with powerful gods and spirits in Zandalar.

Of course, there's always the obligatory new dungeons and raids, but we're also getting new allied races. A particularly inflammatory remark came when one Blizzard developer essentially said that while players think they want a vanilla WoW experience, they actually don't.

Perhaps the most exciting addition this expansion brings to the table is the inclusion of a new islands system that adds an nearly rogue-like element to the game.

We saw boats and islands and all sorts in a Battle for Azeroth trailer.

World of Warcraft fans tried to resurrect classic WoW in the past without success. Blizzard is bringing back vanilla World of Warcraft, WoW Executive Producer J. Allan Brack today announced during BlizzCon 2017's opening ceremony. Those who choose to play with PvP on will also get bonuses like extra experience, to reward their added risk.

A beta test for Battles for Azeroth will be taking place, and you can opt into it through the official site. However these servers will take a little time to prepare. That packs in two new continents, a new level cap, and other features.
