At Blizzcon, Blizzard has announced a new expansion for World of Warcraft and that they are bringing classic vanilla servers as an option for players.

The new expansion titled Battle for Azeroth includes a new continent, Zandalar, along with new dungeons, raids, and uncharted islands. Players are tasked with dominating warfronts and rallying all the allies in the Alliance Vs. Horde war.

Additionally, Blizzard also confirmed long time rumors that they are offering players the chance to go back in time and play World of Warcraft as it was a decade ago. After the company shut down player-owned vanilla servers, speculation arose that Blizzard planned to reintroduce the idea themselves in an official capacity, which they have finally done.

Check out the Battle for Azeroth overview below, and the WoW Classic announcement just below it.
