World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is the seventh expansion to the classic MMORPG called World of Warcraft that was released back in 2004. The expansion, officially announced during the 2017's BlizzCon, was developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Plot

Azeroth paid a huge price for the destructive crusade organized by the Burning Legion that was featured in the previous expansion. Now, when the world is slowly recovering, the growing lack of trust between the Alliance and the Horde poses a new threat that yet again fires up the hostility between the two factions. One of the sources of this conflict is the access to a new magical mineral - Azerite. During the game, players can witness tragic events leading to another territorial war, fronts, and alliances that will decide the fate of all Azeroth.

Mechanics

World of Warcraft: Battle of Azeroth focuses mainly on the rivalry between the two most important factions in Azeroth - the Alliance and the Horde. This expansion introduces two new continents divided into several islands. The first continent is Kul Tiras, where the members of the Alliance are looking for new allies to fight with the Horde. It is a kingdom of brave sailors and the house of Jaina Proudmore. The player can encounter dangerous pirates and mages wielding dark magic. On the other hand, in search for new allies, the members of the Horde go to Zandalar. It is a territory of an ancient Empire covered with dense tropical forests inhabited by trolls, dinosaurs and other magical creatures. Both continents offer new dungeons, raids, a number of quests, and previously unseen opponents.

In World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth players' characters can count on increasing the level cap (from 11 to 120). During the game, one can recruit a total of eight new playable neutral races - four per Horde and four per Alliance. All players starting the Battle for Azeroth campaign receive a special artifact introduced by this expansion. It is an enchanted necklace that utilizes the potential of the mysterious Azerite mineral.

The expansion described herein offers also two new game modes. The first one called Island expeditions allows groups of three players to explore the uncharted islands and fight random creatures and threats in return for precious treasures and pieces of equipment. The second mode, called Warfront, allows teams of twenty players to take control of locations that have strategic significance to a given faction. Also, the PvP mode has undergone significant modifications.
