Heroes of Azeroth are eagerly anticipating the next chapter of the WoW saga since the developers revealed the dragon-filled adventure back in April. Since then, a slow trickle of information has been revealed about the expansion.

Though there’s still some work to be done, the studio quietly has now revealed all the major information about the expansion.

Here’s everything you need to know about getting the next World of Warcraft expansion including the release date and different versions of the game for sale.

On October 4 a 50% XP boost will begin to allow layers to level up in Shadowlands before the latest expansion releases.

After that, the expansion’s first raid will become available on December 13.

WoW Dragonflight Pre-order

To preorder the WoW Dragonflight expansion, Blizzard is giving players three options with the Base, Heroic, and Epic Editions of the game.
