Battle for Azeroth Release Window Revealed, Pre-Purchase Now Open

Battle for Azeroth is the seventh expansion for World of Warcraft and it's due to be released this summer.

Blizzard has announced that they have started to accept pre-orders for the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion. Players who want to unlock these Allied Races must be Exalted with that race's associated Legion faction. Once the race is available, players can then create their new character, and these new races will begin at level 20. Thankfully, these requirements are account-wide, helping Alliance players unlock the Horde races fairly easily and vice versa.

If you're ready to hit the ground running ahead of Battle for Azeroth's release, you can preorder the expansion now from Blizzard for $49.99 for the standard edition, or $69.99 for the Digital Deluxe edition. In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion sets off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the conflict at the heart of the Warcraft saga.

That 110 boost is probably the most enticing of all the bonuses, though, as it can be saved and used to instantly boost one of the new Allied Races in the game when Battle for Azeroth launches.

Digital Deluxe owners will get a host of goods for other Blizzard games as well.




World of Warcraft: Charge into battle astride the Seabraid Stallion (Alliance) and Gilded Ravasaur (Horde) mounts, and explore new frontiers with Tottle, the baby Tortollan pet, at your side.

StarCraft II: Horde and Alliance sprays will let you cover the map while declaring your allegiance.

Heroes of the Storm: Roar onto the Battlegrounds of the Nexus riding your Primal Flamesaber, a fiery new mount with three variants.

Show your faction pride on the battlefields of tomorrow with Horde- and Alliance-themed voice lines for Torbjorn; emotes for Tracer; Anduin, Jaina, Sylvanas, and Saurfang sprays; and Kul Tiran and Zandalari player icons. I don't know what had to change at Blizzard Entertainment to pump out new, quality content at a faster clip, but World of Warcraft's next expansion is closer than I could have reasonably expected.
