Blizzard announce World of Warcraft Classic at BlizzCon 2017

What Gamers Can Expect from the Future of the World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft was the focus of some major announcements at this weekend's BlizzCon in Anaheim, California. A version of the hit MMO that will aim to recapture the look and feel of the version we all played well over a decade ago. Watch out for more BlizzCon and other gaming news here on A9K. Which as the name suggests pit the Alliance against the Horde in a new war. Going by the name of World of Warcraft: Classic, this server will not have any of the new races, classes, or regions from the expansions. Two fabled kingdoms will be open for exploration. Alliance defenders however seek the aid of equally capable seafaring kingdom Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore.

Recruit Allied Races: Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities. Right now, Blizzard has only six races in the works, but more are planned for the future; Horde players will be able to make Nightborne, Highmountain Tauren, and Zanadalari Trolls, while Alliance players will gain the option to create Void Elves, Lightforged Draenei, and Dark Iron Dwarves. Players can also now explore the Great Sea and battle it out for treasure and territory on small-scenario Islands, or compete in the "Warfronts", a new PvE mode inspired by classic real-time strategy Warcraft. Island Expeditions will be dynamic, variable missions which set players out in groups of three to explore uncharted areas and race against the enemy faction to secure resources. 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. Imbue the Heart of Azeroth-a legendary neck piece entrusted to each hero by Magni Bronzebeard-with Azerite to customise your armour with new powers and traits. Moreover, the participants will get 10 new dungeons, a PvP system that was changed, and new ways of leveling characters.

Instantly Boost to Level 110: Enter the raging conflict between the Horde and the Alliance prepared to survive on the front lines of a vicious new war.

Join up with WoW players who share common interests in persistent cross-realm Communities. If you're wondering when you can jump back into the fray for yourself, you'll have to wait a bit longer, Blizzard has yet to announced a final release date.
