Subscriptions Jump 600,000 Prior to Expansion's Release - MMORPG.com

In anticipation of the forthcoming World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion, subscriptions are up over 600,000 and places WoW subscriber population at 7.5M. This significant jump nearly erases the 800,000 subscriber loss experienced by WoW in the quarter ending at the end of June 2014.

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A wave of destruction washes over the land as an army of orcs pours through the Dark Portal. With today's launch of World of Warcraft Patch 6.0.2: The Iron Tide, the Iron Horde's invasion of Azeroth has begun! More than 7.4 million of Azeroth's champions have taken up their positions on the front line, ready to face the full might of the Iron Horde with the upcoming release of the Warlords of Draenor expansion on November 13.

Features introduced with today's Iron Tide content update include:

  • "Iron Horde Incursion" World Event: players looking to upset the Iron Horde invasion can journey to the Blasted Lands to face down the onslaught and venture into the revamped five-player version of the Upper Blackrock Spire dungeon
  • New Character Models: several of the game's original races are new and improved, with increased resolution as well as updated animations and facial expressions
  • Interface Improvements: questing is now easier than ever with an updated quest log and inventory changes, including a Toy Box for the fun items players acquire through their adventures
  • Character and Class Changes: myriad character- and class-specific updates are now live, making this a great time for players to refamiliarize themselves with their characters ahead of the expansion's November 13 launch

Full details on the changes and new features added to the gametoday can be found in the patch notes.
