World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is the next expansion to Blizzard’s long-running massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Announced at BlizzCon 2017, it reignites the rivalry between World of Warcraft’s two major factions, the Horde and the Alliance.
Battle for Azeroth takes place after the events of the last expansion, Legion. As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth's heroes must set out on a harrowing journey in search of new allies, race to claim resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.
"Conflict is at the heart of the Warcraft saga, and in Battle for Azeroth, tensions that have been simmering for a long time escalate into all-out war,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “World of Warcraft players are incredibly passionate about the characters and factions they identify with in the game, and this expansion will make them prouder than ever to declare their allegiance to the Horde or to the Alliance."
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth features multiple warfronts, new kingdoms to explore, allied races to recruit, as well as the ability to customise your weapons and armour with new powers and traits. No release date has been announced just yet.
