World of Warcraft : Battle for Azeroth – Cinematic Trailer – Video Game News
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is the upcoming seventh expansion pack for the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft, following Legion. It was announced at BlizzCon 2017, and will be released on August 14, 2018.

World of Warcraft Gameplay
The expansion allows players to level up to level 120, an increase from the level cap of 110 in the previous expansion Legion. Initially, there will be ten dungeons included with 8.0 with Mythic Plus versions of the dungeons and the first raid, Uldir, being available soon after the game’s release. Following the beginning of preorders and the release of four allied races in January 2018, the number of character slots per server was raised from 12 to 16. The number of available bag slots in the player’s backpack, which has been fixed at 16 slots since the game’s release in 2004, will also receive an increase if an authenticator is attached to an account.
World of Warcraft Plot
Following the events of Legion, the wounded Azeroth is bleeding a substance called “Azerite,” which has great magical potential. The Horde Warchief, Sylvanas Windrunner, attempts to consolidate Horde power on Kalimdor and gain a monopoly on Azerite (which is primarily found at the southern end of the continent). Her campaign to do so, the War of Thorns, forms a pre-launch event for the expansion and ends with the major Night Elf holdings on the continent seized or (in the case of their capital city of Darnassus) annihilated. The Alliance makes a retaliatory strike against her home base, the Undercity, and succeeds in driving the Horde out. With this tit-for-tat military exchange, the Horde has almost complete control over Kalimdor, while the Alliance has near-total dominion over the Eastern Kingdoms. With further conflict inevitable, Battle for Azeroth takes the two factions to the continents of Kul Tiras and Zandalar to recruit new allies in order to turn the tides of war.
