Battle for Azeroth descends on World of Warcraft this summer

The Horde and the Alliance face off in Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft Battle for Azerot

An announcement from Blizzard's official site has revealed that the latest expansion in the company's flagship MMO, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, is to be released this summer. But, while you've got a while to wait before you can jump into the game, preordering allows players to get early access to the first four races to be part of the new Allied Race system. You have to complete quests to earn their favour, but once you do, you can create your own Void Elf, Lightforged Draenei, Ancient Nightborne, or Highmountain Tauren. You can boost instantly, or take advantage of the already-implemented new leveling experience that scales leveling across zones so you don't miss out on questlines by out leveling them awkwardly toward the end.

There will be a Collectors Edition of The Battle of Azeroth coming soon. If you do decide to level up one of the new races from 20 to 110 will unlock a set of cosmetic gear known as Heritage Armor.

However, just because the Allied Races are now available doesn't mean they're accessible to everyone.

In addition there are the new Allied Races to play as, a new Heart of Azeroth artifact which unlocks new powers in your equipment, and of loads of new content and associated rewards to keep you busy your way to the new level cap of 120.

Battle for Azeroth itself is due for release "on or before September 21, 2018", according to Blizzard.




Ride proudly astride the Seabraid Stallion mount as you fight for the Alliance, or prove your allegiance to the Horde with the Gilded Ravasaur mount.

Everyone who pre-buys Battle for Azeroth will also receive in-game items for WoW and other Blizzard games.

Show your faction pride on the battlefields of tomorrow with Horde- and Alliance-themed voice lines for Torbjorn; emotes for Tracer; Anduin, Jaina, Sylvanas, and Saurfang sprays; and Kul Tiran and Zandalari player icons.

Heroes of the Storm: Roar onto the Battlegrounds of the Nexus riding your Primal Flamesaber, a fiery new mount with three variants.
