World of Warcraft Classic finally revealed at BlizzCon 2017

Blizzard did not reveal a release date for World of Warcraft Classic, only sharing that they're working on making it a reality.

Players will explore the Zandalar empire and the home of Jaina Proudmoore, Kul Tiras.

As reported in the Battle for Azeroth reveal post, World of Warcraft player will be able to choose six new playable Allied Races - four of which were encountered in the Legion campaign.

This was a reference to "vanilla" WoW servers, which players have logged into behind Blizzard's official back to play earlier, pre-expansion versions of WoW. Since the focus of the new expansion is the Alliance fighting the Horde, it will be up to players to make as many allies as possible to give their side an advantage in the upcoming war, and this will be done via quests.

Battle for Azeroth will see players battling it out in groups of three to collect island resources across previously unmapped islands of Azeroth.

In addition to the new expansion, Blizzard finally announced it will deliver on a feature that fans have long requested: classic servers.

Players will try to earn their favor and upon doing so will and unlock each race.

World of Warcraft has changed quite a bit since it's release back in 2004 and not many playing today got the original experience, but today at BlizzCon Blizzard announced that they would bring back the good old days with World of Warcraft Classic! "It's going to take some time. but it will happen".

World of Warcraft is available on PC, Mac, and Linux. Legion was the latest expansion, but the story there has now ended, with the final raid about to be completed soon, so it's getting a new expansion soon: Battle for Azeroth. That packs in two new continents, a new level cap, and other features.
