World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth Warfront Mode Details Revealed
The latest upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth, promises much for both Horde and Alliance players. Alongside the latest entry in the epic story, players can look forward to new characters, Island Expeditions, new and customizable armor, and ‘Warfront’ mode. Although the new expansion was announced back at BlizzCon 2017, we’ve yet to be given any real details on what to expect out of Warfront mode. Thankfully the folks over at Polygon sat down with game director Ion Hazzikostas, where the premise and what to expect out of Warfront mode was revealed.
According to Hazzikostas, the new Warfront mode was actually inspired by Warcraft 3, and will feature 20-player PvE missions in which characters on both sides of the field lead their faction into battle in order to swing the battle in their faction’s favor. One such example is a mission called Stromgarde Keep, which will be available in the Arathi Highlands, an older WoW zone. The mission rotates between Alliance and Horde, and once a faction not in control turns in enough resources, Warfront mode is launched.
Once Warfront mode begins, players have roughly a week to jump in and partake in the event in order to reap the rewards. After the allotted time ends, the opposing faction would then have a chance to submit resources in an attempt to launch their own Warfront, and the cycle continues. While the potential rewards for the new mode are currently unknown, Blizzard will undoubtedly provide players with a good reason to partake in Warfront mode. We’ll just have to wait until August 14th, when the new expansion arrives, to find out what it is.
