Blizzard announced this morning that World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, is now available for pre-order, listing prices, and content for three separate versions. Additionally, Blizzard confirmed that players will experience Dragonflight sometime this year.

There will be three versions of Dragonflight: the base edition, the Heroic edition, and the Epic edition. The main differences between the three are simply the number of digital add-ons each version sports, such as the inclusion of cosmetics, game time, and more. 

Via this morning's press release:

  • "Base Edition: Includes Drakks, a pre-purchase bonus pet to accompany you on your quests.
  • Heroic Edition: Includes Drakks pre-purchase bonus pet, the new Murkastrasza pet, a Dragonflight-level character boost (level 60), and a new Tangled Dreamweaver flying mount to soar on.
  • Epic Edition: Includes all Base and Heroic items, the Timewalker’s Hearthstone effect, the Diadem of the Spell-keeper head-slot transmog, the Wings of Awakening back-slot transmog in five color variants, and 30 days of game time.

The different versions will run starting at $49.99 for the base edition, $69.99 for the Heroic version, while the Epic version will set you back $89.99. 

If you want something more tangible with your World of Warcraft: Dragonflight version, a physical Epic Edition Collector's Set is also available on the Blizzard Gear Store, running $129.99. This version will include the Epic Edition digital goods, as well as a mouse pad, The Art of Dragonflight hardcover art book, and a pin collection set.

World of Warcraft Dragonflight Collector's Edition

While we don't have an official release date just yet, we do know that Dragonflight will release at some point this year. Hopefully World of Warcraft: Dragonflight's return to the Dragon Isles can reinvigorate the MMO in new ways, especially as we see the Dracthyr, WoW's  new race and class in a while, as well the new, almost eponymous mechanic, dragonridingDragonflight will also push the level cap up to 70 and take players to four new zones later this year.
