As we all expected, Blizzard announced a new expansion for the undethronable MMORPG World of Warcraft at Blizzcon 2017. However, the release date for the expansion had somehow remained a mystery. But now Blizzard has finally confirmed an exact date for the expansion, August 14, 2018. Before going in details, lets hype a little bit.
After the fall of Legion and Sargeras, all players was wondering about the upcoming expansion. The new expansion is hugely inspired by the older expansions, bringing back the classic Horde and Alliance versus. What we know from the trailer and cinematic, is that Sylvanas attacked Teldrassil by burning the forest, then later Anduin Wyrnn attacked Undercity. The reason behind the attack of Sylvanas remains a mystery.
Here is the detailed information about the new expansion;
