There's a double sided story book, Elegy & A Good War, collecting a pair of novellas which depict the Burning of Teldrassil from Alliance and Horde perspectives in a svelte hardcover edition.

The seventh expansion of World of Warcraft now has a solid launch date.

As for the Collector's Edition, this is sold for €99.99/£89.99 exclusively at retailers.

World of Warcraft Battle of Azeroth releases on August 14th.

Battle of Azeroth actually takes place after the events of the last game of the massively popular multiplayer online role-playing game.

The company has also detailed the pre-purchasing options for this expansion. This time you won't get a new class to play as but you'll get class variations to the existing ones. The addition of races has always been a contentious one, and rumors have often circulated about Murlocks, Gnolls, and even Nagas as becoming playable, but Blizzard has scaled back on new races. This bundle also includes a level-110 character boost, making it a ideal jumping-on point for new and returning players.
