The next expansion for World of Warcraft is on the horizon. The battle for Azeroth will begin in August, but before its release, Blizzard will release a major pre-expansion patch this week that will form the basis of the upcoming update, bringing a range of new features to the long-running MMO. [ Update: World of Warcraft's big pre-battle for Azeroth Patch is now available for PC.]
The pre-patch is due to go live on Tuesday, July 17th. Among other things, he implements War Mode, a new system that allows players to enable or disable PvP encounters. War Mode can be activated starting at level 20 by visiting either Orgrimmar or Stormwind, depending on your affiliation. If you click it, you can play against other players in all zones, including Northshire Abbey. However, Blizzard says that Sanctuary areas are excluded from PvP even when War Mode is activated.

In addition to War Mode, the Pre-Expansion Patch redesigns the PvP Talent System. Previously, players could unlock talents by participating in PvP and raising their level of honor. After the update, the players receive talents when they ascend. Players can now also select talents from a group of options, rather than rows.
Shortly after the pre-patch is rolled out, Blizzard will launch new events in Teldrassil and Lordaeron. These events will begin in the week of July 24 and last for three weeks until the start of the Battle of Azeroth. The full Pre-Patch Notes can be found on the official WoW website
The battle for Azeroth starts on August 14th. In addition to the above changes, she will explore the new continents of Kul Tiras and Zandalar as well as explore some new islands. The expansion also increases the game's game level limit to 120, adds a series of new dungeons and raids to compete, and implements bounty and air crashes in War mode.
