World of Warcraft


After battling Sargeras and saving the world of Azeroth once again, you’re faced with a different issue in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. Turmoil within the Horde caused by Sylvanas Windrunner has only been growing in scale, as her questionable actions raise more than a few eyebrows.

In the seventh expansion of the biggest MMORPG of all time, you get to jump right back where you left off at the end of Legion.

Pick a side between the Alliance and the Horde and swear your allegiance, as war is threatening to shift the world as we know it. Undercity has been lost, and so has Teldrassil – but the future is in your own hands. The heroes of Azeroth will need to band up once more to prove their true allegiance. With new allied races such as the Zandalari Trolls and the Kul Tiras Humans, the fight is becoming increasingly complex.

To get help from the allied races, though, you’ll have to accomplish intricate questlines that lead you into never before seen lands right here on Azeroth.

It’s the survival of the fittest, and the fittest faction is defined by its players who must face new challenges, fight new bosses, experience exciting new dungeons, and push through the many new raids.

The future of this almost ancient world rests solely on your hands, and turning the tide of war could bring glory to your chosen factor. But, how far are you prepared to go, as things are everything except how they seem in the Battle For Azeroth.
