World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

During Blizzard’s livestream earlier today, one of the many exciting announcements was of a new World of Warcraft expansion. Titled World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, this new chapter takes players into the heart of war, as tensions between the Alliance and the Horde once again explode.

For detailed information on this upcoming expansion, be sure to visit the official website. In the meanwhile however, here’s a quick overview of what’s new:

  • The level cap is being raised to 120
  • New dungeons and raids
  • Six new playable races
  • Six new regions to explore
  • New powerful armor customization
  • A character boost to instantly take a character to level 110
  • 20-player Warfront battles for key points
  • Even more to be announced

World of Warcraft may have gotten a bit long in the tooth (after all, the game initially released in 2004) however it’s undeniably still a powerful force in the gaming scene. There’s no official release date yet, though I imagine it’ll be sometime in the middle of 2018. After all, there tends to be about two years between expansions and World of Warcraft: Legion released in August 2016. We’ll keep you updated as more info emerges.
