Battle for Azeroth launches this Summer

World of Warcraft Legion

World of Warcraft will be getting a little bigger this year with the release of Battle for Azeroth expansion, which is set to arrive this summer and is now available to pre-order. These races include the Highmountain tauren, Lightforged draenei, Nightborne, and Void elves.

Battle for Azeroth is set to be the next big expansion since Legion and will see both the Alliance and the Horde, who previously came together to take down the Legion, at logger-heads once again, however this time they're seeking the help from several allies to become the true victors of Azeroth. The latest of these, Battle for Azeroth, is coming this summer. The unlock requirements are high, requiring you to be Exalted with the respective factions and have completed certain quests. 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.

Pre-orders for the game are already live, and the stampede to get them has caused trouble with Blizzard's purchasing servers across multiple games, as I discovered last night while playing Hearthstone.

Battle for Azeroth's pre-purchase costs $49.99.

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.

-Hearthstone®: After a rough day on the front, rest up at the tavern and play a few hands of Hearthstone with your hot new Azeroth Is Burning card back.

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. Finally, in Heroes of the Storm you get a new Primal Flamesaber mount in three colors. The pre-purchase page also gives us a hint as to when Battle for Azeroth will be launching: a Summer 2018 release window with an "on or before September 21, 2018" stipulation.

Get started by visiting the World of Warcraft page in the Blizzard Shop.
