Battle for Azeroth is now up for preorder

According to a recent press release, "Players who pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth today can begin their journey to recruit four of the expansion's new Allied Races, each representing comrades they've fought alongside on the Broken Isles and Argus in the game's most recent expansion, Legion".

The four Allied Races you can unlock. There will also be new game modes which involve exploring uncharted isles of Azeroth to collect resources against enemy players, and a 20-player, RTS-Warcraft-inspired cooperative mode that will have players battle for strategic locations against enemy forces. Once you have completed a few Alliance quests and earned yourself the respect of an Allied Race, you will unlock the ability to use that race in character creation.

Pre-orders for the game are already live, and the stampede to get them has caused trouble with Blizzard's purchasing servers across multiple games, as I discovered last night while playing Hearthstone. Thankfully, these requirements are account-wide, helping Alliance players unlock the Horde races fairly easily and vice versa.

Battle for Azeroth's pre-purchase costs $49.99.

Both versions will give players a copy of the game, early access to the new Allied Races, and a free boost to level 110 (the new level cap is at 120). When Battle for Azeroth was first announced, Blizzard showed off six new races: the Nightborne Elves, Highmountain Tauren and Zandalari Trolls are joining the Horde, while the Void Elves, Lightforged Draenei and Dark Iron Dwarves will be joining the Alliance. With your new character and once the expansion launches, you can set out to Azeroth and start your adventures. The Hearthstone bonus is an Azeorth Is Burning card pack, while the StarCraft II goodies are sprays themed around the Horde and Alliance. Finally, in Heroes of the Storm you get a new Primal Flamesaber mount in three colors.

The latest expansion to genre-defining MMORPG World of Warcraft will be released later this Summer, Blizzard has confirmed.
