World of Warcraft : Legion Invasion to begin in 2016

The World of Warcraft team took center stage at this year’s Blizzcon to announce that Legion, the game’s next expansion, will launch in the summer of 2016. It has been rumored that Legion would released on or before September 21, 2016.

World of Warcraft: Legion will be available in a Standard Edition (physical and digital versions available; SRP $49.99), which players can pre-purchase digitally now at www.wowlegion.com. Players also have the option to upgrade their pre-purchase to the Digital Deluxe Edition (SRP $69.99), which contains the following in-game bonuses for World of Warcraft and other Blizzard games (available upon or before the expansion’s launch):

  • World of Warcraft – Illidari Felstalker Mount and Nibbles Pet—Stalk the invading demonic forces atop one of the Burning Legion’s own twisted hounds of war, and summon a delightfully demented companion to keep you warm by the fel fire—both available immediately upon pre-purchase.
  • Heroes of the StormFelstalker Mount—Charge down the lanes of the Nexus and wreak havoc on the opposing team astride this fierce fanged terror.
  • StarCraft® II – Fel Protoss Portraits—Take back Aiur in infernal style with psionic-infused StarCraft II portraits of Illidan and Gul’dan.
  • Diablo® III – Wings of the Betrayer—Equip your hero with Illidan’s wings and strike terror into the hearts of Sanctuary’s demons.

Preorders of Legion include a free level 100 boost, access to the new Demon Hunter class up to a week before the expansion launch. In addition, it has also been announced that Legion beta will begin soon.
