World of Warcraft: Legion launches August 30


The sixth expansion is nearly here

World of Warcraft: Legion, the MMO's sixth expansion, will launch August 30, Blizzard just announced.

Taking place on the heels of Warlords of Draenor, this $50 add-on raises the game's level cap from 100 to 110, introduces a new demon hunter class, and sports new dungeons, raids, and artifact weapons.

In addition to the standard edition, Blizzard is offering a $70 "digital deluxe" set, which comes with in-game bonuses of the studio's games. Those include a mount and pet for World of Warcraft, a Heroes of the  Storm mount, a helm transmog and wings for Diablo III, and a pair of StarCraft II portraits.

A $90 physical collector's edition will also be available in limited quantity, which, along with all the digital bonuses, features a hardcover art book, behind-the-scenes footage, music, and a mouse pad.

As an incentive to snap the expansion up ahead of release, Blizzard is giving players who pre-order an instant boost to level 100 for one character and early access to the demon hunter class.
