After 18 long years, Blizzard has announced that cross-faction gameplay is now available in World of Warcraft, allowing players from both the Horde and Alliance to team up for instanced content.
The 9.2.5 content update for Shadowlands introduces limited cross-faction gameplay where players are now able to directly invite members of the opposite faction to a party if they are Battle.net or Real ID friends, or if they are members of a cross-faction WoW Community. This is also open to pre-made groups using the Group Finder tool.
Additionally, 9.2.5 also brings with it some additional content and quality of life updates, including:
- New Customization Quests – Blood Elf and Dark Iron Dwarves can complete a new questline that rewards a new mount and weapon appearances.
- New Achievements – Players who have been hard at work unlocking all covenant achievements will now see those achievements completed across all their characters.
- Quality of Life Changes – Increases to Renown earning and catch-ups, character class tuning, increased Grateful Offerings, and more.
