World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth verschijnt in augustus

De zevende expansion van World of Warcraft, Battle for Azeroth, heeft van Blizzard een releasedatum gekregen: 14 augustus. Deze uitbreiding brengt naast flink wat uren gameplay, nieuwe omgevingen en andere content ook meerdere edities met zich mee. Je kunt kiezen voor de Standard, Digital Deluxe en Collector’s Edition.

De Standard Edition gaat 44,99 euro kosten en bevat gewoonweg de uitbreiding. De Digital Deluxe Edition kost 59,99 euro en brengt een boel meer met zich mee, namelijk:

  • Seabraid Stallion (Alliance) mount
  • Gilded Ravasaur (Horde) mount
  • Tottle the Baby Tortollan pet for World of Warcraft
  • An ‘Azeroth Is Burning’ card back for Hearthstone
  • A Primal Flamesaber mount in Heroes of the Storm
  • Horde and Alliance sprays for StarCraft II
  • A collection of faction-themed extras for Overwatch
  • Battle for Azeroth krijgt zoals gezegd tot slot een Collector’s Edition, die 99,99 euro gaat kosten en al het onderstaande bevat:
  • All the in-game items from the Digital Deluxe Edition
  • Horde & Alliance Double-Sided Mark of Allegiance: Declare your allegiance with this hefty two-sided emblem (stand included). Place it on your desk or shelf and proclaim your chosen faction to the world.
  • Hardcover Double-Sided Book: Elegy & A Good War: This limited-edition hardback collects two new World of Warcraft novellas depicting the Burning of Teldrassil from the points of view of the Alliance and the Horde. Each story includes original artwork exclusive to this edition.†† Written by Christie Golden and Robert Brooks.
  • Battle for Azeroth Digital Soundtrack: Each Collector’s Edition contains a key to download the stirring orchestral pieces from the expansion’s soundtrack—the perfect mood music for laying siege to your enemies.
  • Deze uitbreiding brengt de Alliance en Horde wederom in oorlog, vanwege een nieuwe resource: Azerite. Dit is het levensbloed van de gewonde planeet. In Battle for Azeroth ga je met jouw factie op pad om je eigen wereld te beschermen. Mocht je de uitbreiding van pre-orderen, dan krijg je een level-110 character boost – de level cap sinds World of Warcraft: Legion. Hiermee kun je de Allied Races rekruteren uit de eerste vier expansions, inclusief de Lightforged Draenei van de Alliance en de Ancient Nightborne van de Horde.
    In Battle for Azeroth, the stakes for the Alliance and the Horde are incredibly high, and a player’s faction will have a more meaningful impact on their experience than in any World of Warcraft expansion to date. Whether they’re journeying to unexplored lands to recruit allies or fighting to secure war resources, players will redefine what it truly means to be ‘For the Horde’ or ‘For the Alliance’ when the expansion arrives this August.
    Naast een nieuw verhaal zal Battle for Azeroth nog veel meer content met zich meebrengen. Onderstaande features zullen hun intrede doen in de nieuwe uitbreiding.
    World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Features

    World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth includes new features and content that will put heroes’ fortitude and dedication to their faction to the test. In this expansion, players will be called upon to:

  • Explore Two Fabled Kingdoms: As a champion of the Horde, travel to the empire of Zandalar to persuade the trolls to lend their naval might. As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause.
  • Recruit Allied Races: Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities. Earn the favor of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction.
  • Plunder the Islands of the Great Sea: Set out on Island Expeditions and conquer an ever-changing array of enemies, environments, and objectives. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders—or enemy players—to collect each island’s resources and fuel the war effort.
  • Charge Into a Warfront: Fight on the battlefields of a large-scale, 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim a key strategic location. Capture resources to build your faction’s forces, lead the charge as your troops lay siege to objectives, and fight the enemy commander to claim victory in this new mode inspired by classic Warcraft real-time strategy–game battles.
  • Infuse Your Armor with Titanic Might: Seek out Azerite, an invaluable new resource that has emerged in the Burning Legion’s wake. Imbue the Heart of Azeroth—a legendary neck piece entrusted to each hero by Magni Bronzebeard—with Azerite to customize your armor with new powers and traits.
  • Battle to Level 120: Trace the corruption of the Blood God to the Underrot, unearth the secrets of a lost titan vault, escape from the Drust Realm of the Dead, and more as you quest through 10 new levels—then continue to grow in power through new World Quests, raids, dungeons, and more.

      dat is behoorlijk vroeg in het jaar, ben benieuwd of ze de lijn van legion kunnen vasthouden.
