World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth announced
Latest expansion revealed for the MMO, coming in 2018
Blizzard Entertainment has announced World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, a new expansion to the company’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion has set off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the furious rivalry between the noble Alliance and the mighty Horde. Players must set out on a journey in search of new allies, race to claim the world’s best resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth.
As a champion of the Horde, travel to the Zandalar empire to persuade the trolls to lend their naval might. As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause. Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities. Earn the favor of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction.
Players will fight on the battlefields of a large-scale, 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim a key strategic location. Capture resources to build your faction’s forces, lead the charge as your troops lay siege to objectives, and fight the enemy commander to claim victory in this new PvE mode inspired by classic Warcraft RTS battles. The expansion will also increase level cap to 120, and offer boost to level 110 for new characters.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is set to release in 2018.
