World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth pre-patch now rolling out
As some of you probably know already, World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth is scheduled to arrive next month. However, Blizzard Entertainment has just issued a pre-patch that brings quite a few changes in advance of the big update that will arrive on August 14.
According to the official patch notes, "the escalation of all-out war in Teldrassil, and later Lordaeron" can be experienced starting on July 25. However, some of the changes are already in effect, such as the new character customizations (golden eyes and a few new faces for Blood Elves, a new posture option for orcs), an updated PvP Honor and Prestige system, some War Mode features (more expected to become available in the new zones of Battle for Azeroth next month), new social features (the ability to create and join cross-realm social groups, as well as Voice Chat in all groups, Guilds, and Communities), new numbers when it comes to statistics such as item levels, damage, armor, health, and defense, as well as updates for all classes and specializations to prepare them for Battle for Azeroth.
Access to Battle for Azeroth can be acquired in a Standard Edition for US$49.99 or as a Digital Deluxe Edition, which is US$20 more expensive. The Digital Deluxe Edition comes with two World of Warcraft mounts, a Baby Tortollan pet, as well as various items for Overwatch, Hearthstone, StarCraft II, and Heroes of the Storm.

Obviously, it would also be great to let us know what you think about the game and the upcoming changes in the comments, so feel free to do that as well.
