Blizzard Entertainment announced it will introduce $20 Tokens to the "World of Warcraft" game to follow its recent release of Patch 6.1.2.
Popular online role-playing MMORPG, "World of Warcraft," will soon have a new game structure to accommodate $20 WoW Tokens with Blizzard Entertainment's March 23 release of its latest Patch 6.1.2.
The Tokens will allow players to trade in-game gold and game time within the next few weeks following the release of Patch 6.1.2. Patch notes on the game's website announced it would wait until after the patch had gone live for a time to launch the $20 Tokens accessibility to.ensure the game features were solid enough to support the Token system.
When the Tokens capability has been launched, players will be able to purchase them in the game's Shop using real money. They will also be able to exchange their Tokens for gold at the Auction House based on the going market rate.
With the set market price and clear-cut exchange system, players need not have to worry about their Tokens selling or being undercut due to market shifts. All players who buy or sell Tokens will receive the exact amount of gold they have been quoted.
As soon as a player uses gold to purchase a WoW Token from the Auction House, the Token automatically becomes a Soulbound which can be redeemed for an equivalent of 30 days of game time.
The $20 WoW Tokens will be priced at "roughly equivalent in each local currency," the Patch notes stated, with the starting gold value for each region dependent on the region's in-game economy, as well as what the game developers deem to be a fair and reasonable price. From that point onward, the gold value for Tokens will be determined by a dynamic system based on supply and demand.
The Tokens will initially become available in North America, and will roll out over time to other regions.
