Battle for Azeroth: will it have the WOW factor?

With World Of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, the franchise’s seventh expansion, set for release on 14th August, we take a look at what’s in store for Azeroth after Legion.

Games giant, Blizzard Entertainment, released the newest expansion on 7th November last year with an epic cinematic trailer:


The expansion is crammed full of new content which will both please long-time players, and faction new-comers.

Those loyal to the Alliance will be able to play as two new races: Void Elf and Lightforged Draenei. The Horde is also now playable as both Nightborne and Highmountain Tauren. What’s more, those who choose to level one of these new races up to the new level cap of 120 will be treated to a distinctive heritage armour set.

Players will also get two new continent to explore, more dungeons and raids, warfronts (20-player player vs environment modes against NPCs from the opposing faction), and some of Azeroth’s uncharted islands.

Long-terms fans are already getting excited about the latest expansion. We talk to Dale Handley, a player of WoW since it’s original release in 2005:
