Blizzard Blue Post: “Battle for Azeroth” eve patch will open on July 17 (PLS173 translation)
Tensions between the Horde and the Alliance are escalating, and soon the Battle for Azeroth campaign will begin in earnest. Learn more about some of the big changes in the Eve Patch Survival Guide.
War Mode, PvP Talents, and More
War Mode overturns game boundaries and server constraints. In Alliance and Horde battles, players on any server can team up with like-minded players across servers to enter the battle.
Legion PvP Playoffs
Join the PvP action and get some new gear in time for Battle for Azeroth.
World of Warcraft Community
Friends and family members of the same faction can all be brought together across servers through the new World of Warcraft community.
Don’t forget to update your drivers
For a better experience in Battle for Azeroth and to avoid potential issues, it is important to update your drivers to the latest DirectX 12. Note that AMD and Intel GPUs will default to DX12, while NVIDIA drivers will remain in DX11 with the option to update later.
Shortly thereafter, the Battle for Azeroth expansion will be released simultaneously in the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, South Korea and Australia/New Zealand on August 14. If you are in another region, please visit our post announcement for more information.
