Prepare for World of Warcraft: The War Within

World of Warcraft: The War Within kicks off the final battle and ending to the story the community has followed for many years now. It’s the stepping stone for the Worldsoul Saga and the ultimate window into World of Warcraft’s most significant adventure since the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. While it’s definitely not the start of the end of World of Warcraft, it’s the culmination of this big chapter.

The latest and most current expansion, Dragonflight, took players across lush forests and windy mountains. In Dragonflight, players helped restore peace and serenity to the Dragon Isles, brought together various factions within the realm, and vanquished tyrannous rogue proto-dragons called The Primalists. It was a fantastic expansion and a much better experience than Shadowlands.

The War Within will change up the pace a little and bring players to newfound, subterranean lands where they’ll meet mysteries, secrets, and shocking truths. Players will get to face an ancient evil lurking in the darkness. The War Within will be an expansion of realization and new adventures as Azeroth’s greatest heroes uncover the secrets of the void and its corruption.

It all sounds very exciting and we can’t wait to start playing. For more information about The War Within, feel free to check out Blizzard’s official dedicated website.
