Blizzard Entertainment announced that World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will ship on or before September 21. Pre-purchase is already available today, and doing so unlocks access to the Allied Races storyline (achievement requirements must be met though).
The Battle for Azeroth™ Begins in World of Warcraft® This Summer†—Pre-Purchase Now and Prepare for War. Recruit four of the playable Allied Races† joining the fight in the upcoming expansion to Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Instantly boost one Horde or Alliance character to level 110 today.
IRVINE, Calif.– A new great war between the Alliance and the Horde will erupt this summer†—and starting today, World of Warcraft® players around the globe can seek out new champions to fight for their faction’s cause. Blizzard Entertainment today announced that Battle for Azeroth™, the next expansion to the world’s most popular subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game, is now available for pre-purchase at www.worldofwarcraft.com.
Players who pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth today can begin their journey to recruit four of the expansion’s new Allied Races, each representing comrades they’ve fought alongside on the Broken Isles and Argus in the game’s most recent expansion, Legion™. Upon winning the respect of an Allied Race by completing quests and earning reputation, players will unlock the ability to create characters of that race and set out on a new adventure across Azeroth.† Alliance players can add the shadow-touched Void elves and valiant Lightforged draenei to their ranks, while members of the Horde will be able to bring the ancient Nightborne and noble Highmountain tauren into their faction’s fold—with additional Allied Races to come in the future.
Pre-purchasing Battle for Azeroth also grants the included level-110 character boost immediately†, so players can enter the expansion ready to fight on the front lines of the coming war. Upon Battle for Azeroth’s launch, heroes will be called upon to seek reinforcements in the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras and troll empire of Zandalar; battle for strategic control of Stromgarde, a new 20-player cooperative Warfront; and embark on Island Expeditions, where bands from rival factions race to claim resources on treacherous uncharted terrain.
“Battle for Azeroth brings a whole new dimension to the Horde-vs.-Alliance conflict in World of Warcraft, with a new continent to explore for each faction and brand-new gameplay features like Allied Races, randomized Island Expeditions, and large-scale Warfronts,” said Mike Morhaime. “No matter which side they fight for, players’ dedication to their faction will be put to the test when the new expansion arrives this summer.”
Players who choose to level up a new Allied Race will also be able to enjoy World of Warcraft’s recently revamped level 1 to 100 questing experience. Building upon a popular feature introduced on the Broken Isles in Legion, zones across Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor now scale to a wide range of character levels, making it so players can enjoy the quests, stories, and other content at their own pace. Those who complete the full level 20–110 experience† as an Allied Race character will also earn that race’s distinctive Heritage Armor—a set of cosmetic gear that represents their dedication to finding their people’s place in Azeroth.
It has been six months since Amazon.de (and UK) and various book-finder outlets throughout Europe leaked the novel title and ISBN for World of Warcraft: Troll Wars by Paul S. Kemp.
My original post (published on May 2017), contains the book description about the high elven magi training humans to fight in the Troll Wars. A few days after the leak made headlines, the book title was changed to “A new novel” and the book description was removed.
Ever since, there has been no announcements, and no denial of its existence. I personally contacted the author Paul S. Kemp by email and via Reddit (as well as the Panini publisher) to confirm or deny this novel, but I did never get a response.
It is not a question at this point of whether the novel existed. Six months after it was leaked, it is STILL listed in Amazon UK and Germany, and its ISBN 9783833235375 shows up in search engines by other book websites. So the leak did exist, and it is been picked up by bookstores as “factual.”
The release date placeholder is set nowadays to December 31, 2018.
