The next expansion for World of Warcraft is finally here. The Battle for Azeroth adds another chapter to WoW’s story, encompassing a new campaign for players to fight their way through.
Battle of Azeroth releases globally for WoW today. In the western hemisphere, the expansion launches at 3:00 PM PT / 6:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM BRT / 11:00 PM BST on August 13. For the eastern hemisphere, these times translate to 12:00 AM CEST / 1:00 AM MSK / 6:00 AM CST / 7:00 AM KST / 8:00 AM AEST on August 14.
In Battle for Azeroth, the Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner is marching towards the Darnassus. Depending on their faction, level 110 or higher players can side with Stormwind or the Undercity in preparation for the ensuing conflict. The expansion implements updates to the PvP talent and Honor systems, and makes a few changes to classes and specializations. Communities makes it easier for players to connect with others who share their interests.
Battle of Azeroth also increases the level cap to 120. The expansion adds bounties to the game too, letting you make your fortune by hunting down other players. Becoming an assassin-for-hire raises your infamy, increasing the likelihood of you showing up on a bounty board one day.
World of Warcraft is available on PC. The game has received numerous expansions over the course of its lifetime, but a new Classic mode will allow players to experience WoW as it was at launch in 2004.
