World of Warcraft Expansion Trilogy Unveiled

World of Warcraft Adventures Await as Players Embark on a Three-Part Journey to Save Azeroth

During BlizzCon 2023, Blizzard Entertainment made a significant announcement that has World of Warcraft fans buzzing with excitement. “The Worldsoul Saga™” has been unveiled, featuring three upcoming expansions for the massively popular online game, World of Warcraft®. This trilogy of expansions, including “World of Warcraft: The War Within™,” “World of Warcraft: Midnight™,” and “World of Warcraft: The Last Titan™,” offers players a captivating narrative as they work to save Azeroth.

Holly Longdale, the executive producer of World of Warcraft, spoke about the project, stating, “Beginning with The War Within, The Worldsoul Saga ™ has grown from the seeds of what captured the hearts of players around the world when they first set foot in Azeroth. For veteran players, the last 20 years have led to this, and for those who have never set foot in Azeroth, this is a whole new adventure.”

These expansions are designed to be standalone narratives while contributing to an overarching storyline. As John Hight, the general manager of Warcraft, puts it, “The War Within, Midnight, and The Last Titan encompass one of the most ambitious creative endeavors ever attempted for World of Warcraft. Alongside these epic adventures, the ongoing quality-of-life feature updates players have come to expect from us since Dragonflight will continue in The War Within, further setting us up for the next 20 years and beyond.”

Blizzard Entertainment’s President, Mike Ybarra, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, saying, “As we begin a new era at Blizzard Entertainment, I am inspired by the World of Warcraft teams’ passion for players and their expansive vision for the future of their storytelling. The legacy of World of Warcraft spans generations, and the beginning of The Worldsoul Saga is the perfect time for anyone who has memories of this legendary universe to celebrate, rediscover, and come home to Azeroth.”

The first installment, “The War Within,” takes players on a journey deep beneath the surface of the planet, where they will encounter ancient civilizations rising to power. In a mysterious turn of events, heroes from both the Alliance and Horde find themselves besieged by visions. These visions range from the Light to a more sinister alternative destiny.

In “The War Within,” players will discover new zones, dungeons, and raids, with additional features including:

  • Exploration of the new continent of Khaz Algar, featuring The Isle of Dorn, a hub for both the Horde and Alliance.
  • Introduction of the Earthen, a new playable Allied Race, with their own unique civilization and culture.
  • Hero Talents, offering a new level of class specialization customization inspired by iconic Warcraft archetypes.
  • Delves, bite-sized adventures that support 1-5 players and provide meaningful progression.
  • Warbands, a quality-of-life feature enabling shared banks, reputations, transmogs, and more across multiple characters.

Blizzard has opened digital pre-purchases for “World of Warcraft: The War Within” with several options:
