We’re back to some classic Alliance versus Horde baby!

Blizzard’s long-running MMO World of WarCraft received some pretty darn good updates from today’s series of BlizzCon 2017 announcements during the opening ceremony first being Blizzard making Vanilla servers finally official.

Offering players a taste of the original World of WarCraft experience, or at least the closest it could get, Vanilla or Legacy servers will take players back to the earliest days of WoW right before any expansion. Given that Blizzard has been cracking down third-party or private legacy servers for quite some time now, making legacy servers official would hope to bring old time World of WarCraft players while letting new ones experience classic WoW.

Together with the revival of a the classic WoW experience, Blizzard would also hope to bring some more classic experiences through newer means with the introduction of the newest expansion, Battle for Azeroth. In this expansion, instead of going up against forces that try to invade or destroy Azeroth, which has been the case for many past expansions, players will be treated to some good ol’ Alliance versus Horde action, with some central characters in the conflict revealed to be Jaina Proudmoore, Anduin Wrynn, and Sylvanas Windrunner.

World of WarCraft Classic is currently in the works, whereas the Battle for Azeroth expansion would probably release sometime late next year.
