World of Warcraft: Legion Expansion Release Date Leaked





While Blizzard may have stopped the reporting of subscription numbers for its flagship MMO World of Warcraft, the venerable title is far from having run its race as some have speculated. With the Legion Expansion no longer a theoretical blip on a radar screen looking far into the future, it is now certain that another massive, Warlords of Draenor-like boost to subscriptions, is in the cards. Fans now have an actual potential release date for the new expansion too, as Blizzard have posted a picture on Battle.net, on which - willingly or by mistake - the date: September 21, 2016 is featured.

An image is worth a thousand words and this one is indeed talkative: on top of the projected Legion release date, it also details some of the pre-purchase goodies that players can secure. There's a level 100 character boost, as well as early access to the new character class brought by the expansion: Demon Hunter. Players will be able to pick up the standard version of the game for $49.99, however it's safe to say that true fans will choose the digital deluxe version, which costs $69.99, but which includes quite a few goodies, like added content for Starcraft 2 and Diablo III, as well as an in-game mount and a pet for WoW.

The Legion expansion was announced in August, at Gamescom, and the revelation regarding its release date was made a day before BlizzCon. Legion will raise the level cap to 110 and it will deliver a bevy of new content, including a new continent called The Broken Isles. New Dungeons and raids will also be part of the package, together with customizable artifact weapons. The Legion Beta will start this year, so those looking to sink their fangs into the new content early can sign up at Battle.net.
