World of Warcraft Gets New Expansion, Vanilla Servers

Runtime: 4:29    Author: WorldofWarcraft    Category: Trailers

During this year’s BlizzCon, developer Blizzard dropped a bunch of new details for World of Warcraft’s future. While not entirely unexpected, a new expansion – Battle for Azeroth – is on the way. Out of left-field however, was the reveal of vanilla server support, dubbed World of Warcraft Classic.

The expansion looks to take things back to the series’ classic “Horde versus Alliance” roots. Here’s the official description, via press release:

In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion has set off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the furious rivalry between the noble Alliance and the mighty Horde. As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth’s heroes must set out on a harrowing journey in search of new allies, race to claim the world’s mightiest resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.

World of Warcraft: Classic turns back the clock to a simpler time, pre-expansion. The announcement follows a year of contention with fans who were running their own, unofficial servers.

I am curious what is going to be the tipping point for the war to break out as things are tense but not quite at the state of war yet. Also while I am curious about Classic as I only started with Wrath I do wonder how it is going to end up whether it will just be WOW vanilla or if there will be some tweaks to adjust some things. Will give it a go anyway.

Blizzard sure know how to make a cinematic trailer! Sometimes I feel like I get more excited over what the trailer will be than the actual reveal of the new features!

with all the moaning about wanting classic servers anything that is included from the TBC pre-patch onwards would mean they are not classic servers.
they want classic give them pure classic and then when they complain tell them its what they asked for imo.

I LOVED Classic back in 2004, but it's time has gone. the amount of QoL things Blizzard has added just makes the game so much better and none of it was in the game back then.

i really think these servers will fail, the people moaning about wanting them won't stick with them ( as private servers do not require a monthly fee) and the new people since WoTLK or later will just hate the lack of QoL features and how long everything takes.

Would love to re-live my time in Classic servers.
