World of Warcraft is set to receive a major new expansion next month, which is called Battle for Azeroth. Blizzard is taking the necessary steps to prepare for the expansion by releasing a pre-patch, which gets things ready for the patch while also tweaking existing content.
The Battle for Azeroth pre-patch adds the new Burning of Teldrassil storyline, which will span several weeks. Players who complete the storyline will earn a special mount. Along with the new storyline comes the new War Mode, post-season PvP content, and more. More information can be found over at worldofwarcraft.com.
War Mode tears down boundaries and server rule-set distinctions, allowing players on any realm to decide when they want to jump into a world PvP experience full of like-minded players in the ongoing battle between Horde and Alliance.
