Contrary to what many thought, this is not WoW mobile however. As all eyes look to the future of Azeroth, here’s everything we know about Warcraft Arclight Rumble so far.

Blizzard didn’t announce an official release date yet for Arclight Rumble during the livestream reveal on May 3. However, they did open up pre-registration for players interested in trying the game out.

Arclight Rumble finally lets you control your own legion of Gnolls. Hogger fans, eat your heart out.

According to Associate Game Director Adam Kugler, WoW Arclight Rumble was inspired by tower defense games, but it will be what he called a “tower offense” game in the reveal stream.

Players will collect heroes (or villains) and send them in waves against opponents in PvE, PvP, raids, and a bunch of other modes as well.

You can play as one of five different factions: the Alliance, Horde, Blackrock legions, the Undead, and beasts (made up of Murlocs, Gnolls, and other mobs from WoW).

If you’re interested, you can pre-register for Arclight Rumble right now, using your Battle.net account, on the game’s official page. As of May 3, it is not available on the Google or Apple app stores just yet.

So that’s everything we know about the new upcoming Warcraft mobile game: Arclight Rumble.
