Blizzard bows to fans and announces World of Warcraft Classic

Going by the name of World of Warcraft: Classic, this server will not have any of the new races, classes, or regions from the expansions.

Arguably the face of the MMO/RPG's World of Warcraft gets a brand new cinematic trailer and as per usual it's absolutely incredible to watch even if you aren't a World of Warcraft die-hard. Instead of a single shared continent like we've seen in the past few WoW expansions, Battle for Azeroth will release with two new faction-specific continents, emphasizing the focus on the Alliance vs Horde conflict.

At least it means players don't have to spend time creating and maintaining their own vanilla servers, something Blizzard has taken a dim view of in the past. "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".

There's always a question of "what's next" in World of Warcraft. Alliance players can expect to forge alliances by fending off pirates and hunting giant sea monsters in Kul Tiras, whereas Horde players will gain new allies by fighting traitors and making deals with powerful gods and spirits in Zandalar. Players will have a main goal of trying to recruit new "allied races" for which they will be able to play. The time for compromise has passed, however, and now Azeroth is on the brink of world war.

Lebanon's Al-Mayadeen news outlet reported that Syria fired a surface-to-air missile at Israeli aircraft following the strike. Stating further that the two organizations possessed a shared cause as resistance groups that oppose Israeli aggression.

Battle of Azeroth also offers several new races for players to unlock, 10 new dungeons, and new mechanics such as the Heart of Azeroth and Warfronts. The more powerful theHeart of Azeroth, the more powerful abilities can be given to the armor.

During the World of Warcraft panel at Blizzcon 2017, game director Ion Hazzikostas took the stage to lay out plans for the next expansion, Battle for Azeroth. This feature will be rolling out soon in the public test realm servers, likely dropping in the main game before either Battle for Azeroth or Classic arrive.

Blizzard's annual Blizzcon event in Anaheim, California kicked off on Friday with various game-related announcements, but the most surprising one dug back into the company's history.
