Blizzard has just revealed the release date for World of Warcraft’s upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, which will be available on August 14. Currently, pre-orders are now being accepted and players who will purchase ahead will immediately receive a level 110 character boost, and can “begin the journey to unlock the expansion’s new playable Allied Races,” Blizzard said in an update.
Furthermore, four new races comprise of the Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Void Elves, and Nightborne. If players can level up a character from any of these races from 20 to 110, they’ll receive the Heritage Armour Set. However, players should note that when they earn the armor, they won’t be able to switch factions or races, and they won’t be able to use a character boost or level up using the Recruit-A-Friend program.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is currently priced at $50 that includes the 110 character boost for the Standard Edition and $70 for the Deluxe Edition, which will consist of the 110 character boost and the following pre-order extras:
- Zandalar Gilded Ravasaur (Horde) and Kul Tiras Seabraid Stallion (Alliance) mounts
- Tottle, the baby Tortollan pet
- Hearthstone card back
- StarCraft II sprays
- Heroes of the Storm Primal Flamesaber mounts
- Overwatch voice lines, emotes, sprays, and icons
Just in case those bonuses aren’t enough for you, it’s best to wait until Blizzard announces the Collector’s Edition sometime this year, which will feature “art, music, and lore to celebrate the release of Battle of Azeroth.”
