It’s been nearly 19 years since World of Warcraft originally launched, but the MMORPG doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. During this weekend’s BlizzCon 2023 event, Blizzard announced that World of Warcraft will now be getting not one, not two, but at least three more expansions in the form of World of Warcraft: The War Within, World of Warcraft: Midnight, and World of Warcraft: The Last Titan. These expansions are part of a brand-new story arc dubbed The Worldsoul Saga, a new epic that Blizzard has developed to bring players to a new continent called Khaz Algar, featuring an ancient civilization that rises to power from beneath the surface of the planet. Blizzard also revealed that World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Classic, the Classic version of the 2010 expansion that reintroduced Warcraft II’s Deathwing the Destroyer and bumped the player level from 80 to 85, will be available in 2024.

BlizzCon 2023 Warcraft Announcements

  • World of Warcraft: The War Within is the first installment of The Worldsoul Saga, an ambitious creative endeavor for the Warcraft universe. In this expansion slated for release in 2024, players will travel to the new continent of Khaz Algar as an ancient civilization rises to power deep beneath the surface of the planet.
    • The vision for The Worldsoul Saga was announced to players around the world live on stage, including two expansions following The War Within—World of Warcraft: Midnight and World of Warcraft: The Last Titan.
  • Warcraft Rumble, the first Warcraft game designed from the ground up for mobile, is live now on iOS and Android! An action-packed strategy game, Rumble invites players to assemble armies with their favorite characters from the Warcraft universe and battle it out to test their tactical wits. With over 70 unique missions, as well as weekly and monthly challenges in the form of multipart dungeons, PvP, and more, Warcraft Rumble is full of authentic Warcraft vibes, created by a team with deep roots in the game universe.
  • World of Warcraft Classic invites players to return to Azeroth once again and begin a new journey—with a twist! In Season of Discovery, players will start a fresh adventure where exploration and experimentation will be key to unlocking new abilities for their characters. Then, in 2024, Classic players will witness the breaking of the world (again) in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Classic! Blizzard Entertainment’s third World of Warcraft expansion, originally released in December 2010, returns with faster content cadence, improvements to leveling, expanded Collections UI, a new difficulty level for Dungeon Group Finder after launch, and more!
  • Two heads are better than one in Hearthstone Battlegrounds Duos, an exciting and truly collaborative way to play coming to the popular game mode in 2024. Two players can partner up and strategize together, sharing cards, health, and resources as they work with special Duos cards and synergies to take the crown together!

The wings of a grand new adventure spread widely across the next three expansions! Be a part of the epic story that celebrates the first 20 years of World of Warcraft and sets new foundations for Azeroth’s future.

Journey deep beneath the surface through the four expansive zones of Khaz Algar, the home of the titan-forged Earthen. Start your adventure on the Isle of Dorn off the western shores of Pandaria and descend into The Ringing Deeps. Then marvel at the brilliant sights of Hallowfall before plunging into Azj-Kahet, the high capital of nerubian society.

Earn the trust of the Earthen and unlock an all-new playable Allied Race. Explore Delves, new bite-sized world instances you can tackle alone or with up to four friends, plus an NPC companion. Grow in strength as you level to 80 and earn new skills with Hero Talent trees, share progress across your family of characters with the Warbands system, and take to the skies with Dynamic Flying, now available for hundreds of existing mounts!
