Blizzard has its own classic World of Warcraft server in the works

World of Warcraft: Classic is bringing back the vanilla version of the MMO

Adding a classic server option "is a larger endeavor than you might imagine, but we're committed to making an authentic Blizzard-quality classic experience", Brack says.

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.

A "vanilla" version of World of Warcraft is something that longtime players of the game have been requesting for years.

This will mark the seventh complete expansion pack for World of Warcraft, which will implement new zones, level cap increases, and a look at the ongoing conflict between the game's two divisive factions: Alliance and Horde.

While that trailer lives up to Blizzard's legacy of creating cinematics worthy of the big screen, it unfortunately doesn't tell us much about the game itself. You'll also be able to access new areas called Waterfronts that support 20 player fights over locations that are reportedly of strategic importance to both the Horde and the Alliance.

Other new elements introduced in this expansion are Island Expeditions, where three players cooperatively take on a rotating assortment of tasks on an island. Also, each race will come with their own unique cosmetic armor that can be unlocked once they are fully leveled.

It all sounds very exciting for World of Warcraft players. "Not the actual launch experience", he jokes.

First up, PvP servers are going away entirely.

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