BlizzCon 2015: World of Warcraft: Legion arrives mid-2016

The sixth expansion for Blizzard’s enduring MMORPG World of Warcraft, called Legion, will arrive “summer 2016”. The announcement came during the BlizzCon 2015 opening ceremonies today.

Those who pre-order the expansion will get access to the demon hunter class early. Pre-ordering will also get one character a boost straight to level 100. A cinematic trailer was also released, which you can check out below.

World of Warcraft: Legion adds a brand new continent called The Broken Isles and raises the level cap from 100 to 110. It also features a rebuilt PvP honour system, with new artifact weapons to allow players to customise their own legendary weapons.
