WoW Expansion 'Battle for Azeroth' Reignites Horde-Alliance War

  • Overwatch is a hugely popular game played by over 35 million people lots of esport potential

In addition to the just-announced expansion, Blizzard has made a decision to give in to players who've hated all the expansions to date and would rather play the original game, sans pandas and Lich Kings.

While this year's BlizzCon has showcased Overwatch's new hero and map alongside the announcement that Starcraft II will be free-to-play, the most exciting news surrounds World of Warcraft's history. There are 10,000 characters in it, but here's the insane part: each figure is based on an individual BlizzCon attendee's actual in-game character. Additionally, players that are just planning to hop in for one quick run with a random group can opt-in to voice chat for the duration of the activity. Titled "Battle for Azeroth", this new expansion aims to reignite age-old tensions between the Horde and the Alliance. Two fabled kingdoms will be open for exploration.

It is reported that when an update comes out, the game will see six new races along with two new locations, namely, the action game will take place in Multirate and Zandalari. As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause. On these new continents, players will recruit new "allied races" to bolster the ranks of their faction. Alliance players can explore three new zones set in the island nation of Kul Tiras, while Horde players will travel to three zones making up the islands of Zandalar. Earn the favour of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction. Players will here fight on the battlefield in 20-player co-op matches, capturing resources and claiming objectives against the enemy's commander, in a PvE mode said to be inspired by classic Warcraft RTS battles. The opening cinematic featured a gritty siege in Lordaeron, with Varian Wrynn leading the Allied forces against Sylvanas Windrunner and the Horde in a castle.
