Nearly three months since its announcement at Blizzcon 2017, World of Warcraft's latest expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is now up for preorder. Available from Blizzard's online store, the preorder comes in two flavors, with the standard edition securing the expansion alone, while the Digital Deluxe Edition includes a few extra in-game goodies.
Battle for Azeroth sees the armies of the Horde and Alliance turn their attention back toward one another following their shared victory over the demonic Burning Legion. Set to play out across two new island regions, Kul Tiras and Zandalar, Battle for Azeroth will allow players to adventure to level 120 while befriending new allies, exploring new dungeons and raids, and seeking to take down the other faction.
Battle for Azeroth itself is due for release "on or before September 21, 2018," according to Blizzard. But, while you've got a while to wait before you can jump into the game, preordering allows players to get early access to the first four races to be part of the new Allied Race system. Horde players can start leveling new Highmountain Tauren and Nightborne elf characters, while Alliance players can get a jump on leveling Lightforged Draenei and Void Elves.
In addition to early access to Allied Races, Digital Deluxe preorders will get immediate access to two faction-specific mounts and an adorable pet Tortollan, one of the new races you'll encounter in Battle for Azeroth. A number of cross-promotional goodies are also included for Blizzard's other games, including a Hearthstone card back, Overwatch sprays and emotes, and a Heroes of the Storm mount. Every preorder, whether standard or Digital Deluxe, also includes a free boost to level 110 for one character.
If you're ready to hit the ground running ahead of Battle for Azeroth's release, you can preorder the expansion now from Blizzard for $49.99 for the standard edition, or $69.99 for the Digital Deluxe edition.
