Sixth World of Warcraft expansion Legion will be released “on or before” 21st September 2016, according to small-print on an image dug up on Battle.net.
The image also showed a level 100 character boost for players who pre-purchase Legion – similar to the level 90 character boost Blizzard offered with Warlords of Draenor – and said those people will get seven days early access to the expansion’s new Demon Hunter hero class.
The Standard Edition will cost $49.99, the Deluxe Edition $69.99. The latter comes with an Illidari Felstalker mount and Nibbles pet that looks a lot like it. It also rewards bone wings in Diablo 3, a Felstalker in Heroes of the Storm, and what looks like Illidan Stormrage in StarCraft 2.
We’ll likely get confirmation of a release date for Legion tonight during the BlizzCon opening ceremony. That kicks off at 7pm UK time.
