Announced at BlizzCon last year

, Blizzard did not mention when their new World of Warcraft expansion “Battle for Azeroth” would be released. However given Blizzard’s release schedule and based on previous releases, it was safe to assume that a release in 2018 is in the cards, but when exactly was not revealed until now.


Blizzard has announced that they have started to accept pre-orders for the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion. They have also pegged it for a summer release but no specific dates were mentioned. The game is priced at $50 for the Standard Edition and $70 for the Digital Deluxe Edition.

Both versions will give players a copy of the game, early access to the new Allied Races, and a free boost to level 110 (the new level cap is at 120). However for those who don’t mind spending an extra $20, this will give you two in-game mounts (one for Alliance, one for Horde), a World of Warcraft Baby Tortollan Pet, and also goodies for other Blizzard games like Overwatch, Hearthstone, StarCraft 2, and Heroes of the Storm.

The Battle for Azeroth expansion will be introducing a bunch of changes to the game, including level scaling which will give players more freedom to choose where they want to level, and it will also be seeing Blizzard update the models for the creatures in the game. If you’d like to get your hands on the game, head on over to Blizzard’s website for the details.
