I may not go back ever, but this really does bring back memories.

Blizzard has said Battle for Azeroth, the seventh World of Warcraft expansion, will launch this summer – a date further clarified to mean on or before 21st September 2018.

Pre-purchasing the expansion – buying it outright ahead of time – comes with benefits. One of those is an immediately available free boost to the game’s current level cap of 110; another is a head start on quests to unlock Allied Races in the full Battle for Azeroth expansion. It’s not clear how much of the quests you can complete.

A more expensive Digital Deluxe Edition (£53) offers a Seabraid Stallion Alliance mount or Gilded Ravasaur Horde mount in World of Warcraft, and a cute baby Tortollan pet. There are also some voice lines, sprays and icons for Overwatch; a Hearthstone card back; a Heroes of the Storm Flamesaber mount; and Horde and Alliance StarCraft 2 sprays.

The Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, and the demons of the Burning Legion pour into our world. Their full, terrifying might is fixed on summoning the Dark Titan to Azeroth—and they’ve already located the key to his return.
With the Alliance and Horde devastated, only you can take up Warcraft’s most legendary artifacts, scour the ancient Broken Isles for relics of the Titans, and challenge the Legion before Azeroth’s last hope dies.
Steel yourself, champion. Extinction is imminent.

Take an extended look at many of the new zones, dungeons, bosses, and features coming to World of Warcraft on August 30.
