Battle of Azeroth will be Released Early in America

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is the upcoming expansion for the longstanding MMORPG series from Blizzard and it's proving to be one of the best ones yet. With allied races, tons of new zones to explore, highly requested changes to the game from fans, and a climax to a war that was thought never ending - the ultimate battle between the Horde and Alliance is going to be huge.



Though the game doesn't come out until August, fans will be pleased to learn that the latest expansion will be coming a little earlier than expected ... at least in America. For players who struggle with time zones, that means American players will actually be able to start playing on Aug. 13 — a full day early.


World of Warcraft expansions usually roll out first in Europe, leaving North American players to spend the night watching European streams of new expansions before a big release. Players won’t be doing that this time around, according to Blizzard. Battle for Azeroth will launch in all regions — the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, Korea and Australia/New Zealand — at 6 p.m. ET on Aug. 13.


Before you get too excited, the difference in release isn't astronomical. The game itself will be launching for all regions on August 14, with August 13th being the unlock date for Americans. The reason being is simple timezone math because for the firs time ever, the expansion is releasing everywhere at the exact same time.


The simultaneous launch is exciting, but players are already raising concerns over server stability. The sizeable launch could cause some big issues for dedicated players who want to log in and play. The downside to this news is that many are worried we'll see a repeat of the Warlords of Draenor fiasco back in 2014. Servers were incredibly overloaded when it first launched, making the game unplayable for many and it ... it wasn't fun. So buy wow gold is a fast way to get a lot of fun for you, if you want to, just come to Mmygold to buy wow gold!
