Blizzard bows to fans and announces World of Warcraft Classic

The level cap will go up to 120, and there will be new dungeons to explore in Freehold and Atal'Dazar. Horde players will get to traipse through the ancient empire of Zandalar, with the oldest city Zuldazar, the swamps of Nazmir and the deadly deserts of Vol'dun to visit. Titled "Battle for Azeroth", this new expansion aims to reignite age-old tensions between the Horde and the Alliance.

Battle for Azeroth will see the removal of the Legion expansion's Artifact Weapons. They are both playable, as a new character in this expansion, and a part of the story, being recruited by the Horde and the Alliance.

And a core new feature in Battle for Azeroth is the ability to explore and plunder uncharted islands. The expansion will also feature half a dozen new allied races, split between the Alliance and the Horde, and there are plans to introduce more after launch.

In Warfronts, up to 20 players will work together to "claim a key strategic location", battle enemy commanders and siege specific objectives along the way. The Heart of Azeroth, a necklace that replaces the Artifact Weapons of the Legion expansion, unlocks bonuses from the armor that players will collect by feeding it a resource named Azerite.

No release date, footage, or other gameplay details have yet been revealed, though Blizzard may disclose more about the project during various Blizzcon panels this weekend. Now in development, classic servers will offer nostalgic WoW fans a chance to play through the original launch version of World of Warcraft, which dates back to 2005.

Announced at BlizzCon today and reported by Kotaku, World of Warcraft Classic will give WoW players a truly vanilla, official, non-expanded version of the title to play in.

It allowed players who wanted to return to the legacy edition of the game a chance to do so. "I am pleased and also a little bit nervous to announce the development of a classic server option for World of Warcraft". This was apparently a large endeavor they only recently figured out how to make it happen.
