Battle For Azeroth expansion announced… WoW Classic Server announced

Overwatch Zayra

World of Warcraft is stoking faction rivalries once again with its latest expansion, Battle for Azeroth. 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.

In World of Warcraft's seventh expansion, players will explore the kingdoms of Zandalar and Kul Tiras in an all-out war between the Horde and the Alliance.

At least it means players don't have to spend time creating and maintaining their own vanilla servers, something Blizzard has taken a dim view of in the past.

The future of World of Warcraft looks very bright thanks to the new expansion and upcoming server.

Still, the fact that Blizzard is even working on this feature at all speaks to their willingness to respond to fan requests if not their ability to do so in a timeframe that is always optimal in the minds of a game's fanbase. Battle for Azeroth will arrive sometime next year. As with any expansion, it comes with new raids some new dungeons and also allows players to hit that 120 cap! 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.

Announced at Blizzcon, World of Warcraft Classic seems to take the game all the way back to the beginning, giving players the same experience they once had in Azeroth. All factions will work together within the confines of these new zones to recruit additional "allied races". The scaling (and re-leveling process) will eventually be applied to all of Azeroth, offering a much broader range of levels for particular zones.

A beta test for Battles for Azeroth will be taking place, and you can opt into it through the official site.

While this year's BlizzCon has showcased Overwatch's new hero and map alongside the announcement that Starcraft II will be free-to-play, the most exciting news surrounds World of Warcraft's history.
