The World of Warcraft Battlegrounds will release in the week of December 10. Warson Gulch and Alterac Valley will be added to the game earlier than previously planned. PvP servers are flooded with players that are killing each other as much as possible, to gain honor points. Therefore, Blizzard has decided to release the battelgrounds before the release of Phase 3, to clench their thirst.
The rest of Phase 3, Darkmoon Faire and Blackwing Lair, will release early 2020. You can read the entire Statement by Blizzard below.
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!
