World of Warcraft News - Legion Invasion Begins Summer 2016, Beta 'Within Weeks'

Posted by Suzie Ford on Nov 06, 2015  | Comments

The World of Warcraft team took center stage at this year's Blizzcon to announce that Legion, the game's next expansion, will launch in the summer of 2016. It had been rumored that Legion would release "on or before September 21, 2016", the official calendar end of summer.

World of Warcraft: Legion will be available in a Standard Edition (physical and digital versions available; SRP $49.99), which players can pre-purchase digitally now at www.wowlegion.com. Players also have the option to upgrade their pre-purchase to the Digital Deluxe Edition (SRP $69.99), which contains the following in-game bonuses for World of Warcraft and other Blizzard games (available upon or before the expansion’s launch):

  • World of Warcraft – Illidari Felstalker Mount and Nibbles Pet—Stalk the invading demonic forces atop one of the Burning Legion’s own twisted hounds of war, and summon a delightfully demented companion to keep you warm by the fel fire—both available immediately upon pre-purchase.
  • Heroes of the Storm Felstalker Mount—Charge down the lanes of the Nexus and wreak havoc on the opposing team astride this fierce fanged terror.
  • StarCraft® II – Fel Protoss Portraits—Take back Aiur in infernal style with psionic-infused StarCraft II portraits of Illidan and Gul’dan.
  • Diablo® III – Wings of the Betrayer—Equip your hero with Illidan’s wings and strike terror into the hearts of Sanctuary’s demons.

Preorders of Legion include a free level 100 boost, access to the new Demon Hunter class up to a week before the expansion launch

In addition, the team let it be known that "within weeks" of the end of Blizzcon tomorrow the Legion beta will begin.

Find out more about what Legion has in store on the World of Warcraft site.
