BOSTON — World of Warcraft may no longer dominate the MMO scene, but it still boasts millions of dedicated players, eager for the next cooperative high-fantasy adventure. Battle for Azeroth is the latest expansion (the seventh, if you’re keeping count) for World of Warcraft, and the game looks like it’ll draw on the franchise’s rich RTS legacy: large groups of warriors competing for resources on huge battlefields.

I went hands-on with Battle for Azeroth at PAX East 2018, and while I got to experience only one aspect of the gameplay, it reminded me a lot of playing some of the Warcraft RTS titles back before the series went MMO-only. The mode pitted two teams of three players — one Horde group and one Alliance group — against each other in a race to collect resources.
