Blizzard’s Horde v. Alliance-themed World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth , officially became available for pre-purchase on Jan. 30 right here . Fans who pre-order will be able to play four of the six new allied races in advance: Void Elves and Lightforged Draenei (for Alliance) and Highmountain Tauren and Nightborne (for Horde). These races can be unlocked and leveled up by those who pre-order, beginning at level 20.

You unlock all four factions by building your reputation with races from the Legion expansion and completing the Legion expansion’s main storyline. If you level a character in one of the new races from 20 to 110, you unlock a new set of “heritage armor” unique to that race. Using experience-boosting heirlooms will still get you the armor, but using the paid instant-boost will not.

The expansion launches in summer of this year. It will raise the level cap to 120, give players a level-boost for one character to 110 and open up new PvE and PvP areas. Those who pre-order will have instant access to their level-110 character boost.

The standard version is $50, while a digital deluxe edition for $70 gives goodies across a few different Blizzard games, including:

  • World of Warcraft: Charge into battle astride the Seabraid Stallion (Alliance) and Gilded Ravasaur (Horde) mounts, and explore new frontiers with Tottle, the baby Tortollan pet, at your side.

  • Hearthstone : After a rough day on the front, rest up at the tavern and play a few hands of Hearthstone with your hot new Azeroth Is Burning card back.

  • StarCraft II : Make your mark on distant worlds with Horde- and Alliance-themed sprays.

  • Heroes of the Storm : Roar onto the Battlegrounds of the Nexus riding your Primal Flamesaber, a fiery new mount with three variants.

  • Overwatch : Champion your faction on the battlefields of tomorrow with Horde and Alliance voice lines for Torbjörn and emotes for Tracer; sprays featuring Anduin, Sylvanas, Jaina, and Varok Saurfang; and player icons representing Kul Tiras and Zandalar.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth continues the tale of the torrid affair, uh, ongoing battle between the Horde and Alliance. In addition to the increased level cap, the new expansion includes the two new kingdoms of Zandalar and Kul Tiras, the new Allied Races mentioned above, a three-player scenario-based feature called Island Expeditions, 20-player co-op battles called Warfronts, the all-new Azerite resource and more. A physical collector’s edition will also be available at launch. All players will get four additional character slots per realm.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is World of Warcraft ’s seventh expansion and was initially announced at BlizzCon 2017. You can check out the BlizzCon trailers below:
