Battle for Azeroth is World of Warcraft's next expansion


Yesterday during the company's annual BlizzCon festivities at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, Blizzard announced the latest expansion pack for their wildly popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. It is the sixth major expansion, and will pit the Alliance and Horde against each other in all-out warfare, bringing players back to the core conflict. World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth does not have a release window, but Blizzard may change that during one of the many BlizzCon panels and events in the next few days. The Alliance will set foot on Kul'Tiras archipelago, and the Horde will wade through jungle terrain in Zandalar. Unlike previous expansions where the two groups teamed up against a greater evil such as The Lich King or the Burning Legion, this expansion's story goes back to basics and reopens old wounds between Humans (and Night Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, and Worgen) and Orcs (and Tauren, Goblins, Trolls, and Blood Elves). Alliance defenders however seek the aid of equally capable seafaring kingdom Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore.

In Battle For Azeroth, players will be able to explore new areas of Azeroth, showing several uncharted areas of the world that players haven't seen before.

Allied races are a big part of Battle For Azeroth, with several of the characters within those races now becoming playable, with their own unique abilities.

In Warfronts, up to 20 players will work together to "claim a key strategic location", battle enemy commanders and siege specific objectives along the way. The level of detailing and the expansiveness of this display was a fantastic treat for those long-time World of Warcraft \/em fans. Imbue the Heart of Azeroth-a legendary neck piece entrusted to each hero by Magni Bronzebeard-with Azerite to customise your armour with new powers and traits. Share strategies with members of your class, fraternize with auction house magnates, talk shop with fellow tailors, and expand your social circles. In addition to the just-announced expansion, Blizzard has chose to give in to players who've hated all the expansions to date and would rather play the original game, sans pandas and Lich Kings. No release date has been set, so we're just going to assume that it'll be sometime mid-2018.
