Otherwise, you can expect Blizzard to update the official World of Warcraft site with plenty of FAQs and features as the game moves through development. In Battle for Azeroth, each group will receive their own new continent to explore: the Alliance will get the ancient Human kingdom of Kul Tiras, while the Horde will travel to the Troll empire of Zandalar.

In an extensive interview with Polygon, World of Warcraft director Ion Hazzikostas discussed the game's journey since Warlords of Draenor-an expansion with poor endgame content partly responsible for driving almost 4 million subscribers away.

It wouldn't be a Blizzcon without a World Of Warcraft expansion, and this year's packed in two. With that said, do you plan to hop into World of Warcraft Classic? Alliance players will be able to access Kul Tiras, while Horde players will be in Zandalar. The overall level cap will also go up to 120, at which point the world quests and allied race emissaries will become available.

Announced during the Blizzcon 2017 opening ceremony, World of Warcraft Classic is now in development, although a specific release date remains unknown. Then comes the new "Allied Races" with unique abilities, such as Highmountain tauren and Void elves, which can be unlocked by gaining reputation with their respective factions. Gamers will explore these islands with up to two other players, but no two experiences will be the same; even when players visit the same island twice, they will find new challenges and missions.

The announcement of World of Warcraft: Classic will excite a lot of fans that were disappointed when in 2016 Blizzard shut down a fan-run vanilla World of Warcraft server, Nostalrius. This feature will be rolling out soon in the public test realm servers, likely dropping in the main game before either Battle for Azeroth or Classic arrive.

While this year's BlizzCon has showcased Overwatch's new hero and map alongside the announcement that Starcraft II will be free-to-play, the most exciting news surrounds World of Warcraft's history.
