WoW Classic: Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch Release Date

WoW Classic: Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch Release Date

A week after introducing the Honour system and Phase 2 to WoW Classic, Blizzard have announced additional events on the horizon: Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley will soon be added to the game, as will Elemental Invasions!

WoW Classic: Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch Release Date

Though they were originally intended to be introduced to World of Warcraft Classic in Phase 3, the renowned Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch battlegrounds will finally be added to the game during the week of December 10th.

In addition, Elemental Invasions will also make their appearance alongside the battlegrounds, though players will have to wait for Darkmoon Faire and Blackwing Lair, as both are expected to be added to the game at the start of 2020.

Blizzard's Official Statement

Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley will open in WoW Classic simultaneously on all realms the week of December 10. At the same time, Elemental Invasions will occur in Kalimdor, with Blazing, Thundering, Watery, and Whirling Invaders appearing in Un’goro Crater, Azshara, Winterspring, and Silithus respectively.

We’ve been following the deadly deeds of the Classic community closely over the last week as the Honor system sparked an impressive amount of World PvP on PvP realms, and we’re excited to see what might transpire over the next three weeks. Nonetheless, like many of you, we can’t wait to charge into some battlegrounds, so we’ve detached this content unlock from the plan we previously announced. Blackwing Lair and Darkmoon Faire are coming in early 2020.

We’ll have an exact timestamp for this content unlock to share with you in early December.

See you there!
