Earlier this year we reported that World of Warcraft's upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, went up for pre-purchase. Well, Blizzard has announced the official release date for the anticipated expansion as well as revealed the contents of the Digital Deluxe and Collector's Edition that will launch at the same time. 

According to a flashy new trailer uploaded by the developer, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will release on 14 August 2018.

On August 14, the Battle for Azeroth will begin! Prepare for war as the Alliance and the Horde go head to head in the latest World of Warcraft expansion. Explore the kingdoms of Zandalar and Kul Tiras, gather Azerite on uncharted islands, and strike at the opposing faction in Warfronts.

In addition to the game's release, Blizzard detailed the two editions you will be able to grab at launch. Most interesting is the hardcover book which looks and sounds like an experience on its own. It tells the story of both the Alliance and Horde perspectives leading into the Battle for Azeroth but this is where it gets interesting. You can read it from the front to back to understand one side of the story and then flip the book around to read the Horde's side of it. So it's a double book in one with a hardcover and some great art too.

Included in the Collector's Edition is also a digital soundtrack with music from the game and a collectable coin. Both the Collector's Edition and the Digital Deluxe edition come with cool digital content too. 

  • World of Warcraft Seabraid Stallion/Gilded Ravasaur mount
  • Baby Tortollan pet
  • Battle for Azeroth Hearthstone card back
  • StarCraft II Horde and Alliance sprays
  • Heroes of the Storm Primal Flamesaber mount
  • Torbjorn voice lines/emotes for Tracer as well as player icons in Overwatch


This is all very exciting and I personally cannot wait to get my hands on the game. I am a closeted World of Warcraft fan and I love a good expansion. Will you be picking it up? Let us know in the comments below.
