Battle for Azeroth will see the removal of the Legion expansion's Artifact Weapons. There is also a new 20-player cooperative mode called Warfront in which players lead whole armies and battle for control over strategically important locations in gameplay inspired by the classic Warcraft real-time strategy games.
Blizzard Entertainment announced the newest expansion for World of WarCraft, dubbed the Battle for Azeroth. The time for compromise has passed, however, and now Azeroth is on the brink of world war. Information about the release date Battle for Azeroth is not reported. The Horde (the "outcasts" of Azeroth, the orcs who came from a different world mostly) and the Alliance (mostly the humans) hate each other, and so, with this expansion, will go at each other's throats.
Battle for Azeroth will allow players to venture through the regions Zalandar and Kul Tiras in an effort to recruit allies for the war effort. Each continent has three zones each that feature the dynamic level scaling system found in Legion (more on the later), and once a player reaches level 120, they will be able to travel to the other continent. In addition to the just-announced expansion, Blizzard has made a decision to give in to players who've hated all the expansions to date and would rather play the original game, sans pandas and Lich Kings.
World of Warcraft is a game that has been part of millions of lives for a very long time now. Now they'll get that chance. They can even jump back and forth between expansions.
World of Warcraft fans have been begging for years for a vanilla WoW experience straight from Blizzard. The server was massively popular, but Blizzard issued a cease and desist order for copyright infringement.
Not a lot is known yet about how World of Warcraft Classic will work.
The announcement of Blizzard Vanilla servers got nearly as manic a reaction as the expansion.
Game director Ion Hazzikostas took center stage to break the good news and explain a little bit about how it will work for those that may have skipped out on the latest expansion.
