Watch World of WarCraft Legion's launch trailer ahead of the expansion's release tomorrow

Azeroth will go up in flames when the Burning Legion return.


Announced back in August 2015, the Legion expansion set for World of WarCraft launches tomorrow, August 30. To get you in the mood, Blizzard released a launch trailer for the game.

Aside from new story quests and reveals, World of WarCraft Legion bumps the MMO's max level cap from 100 to 110 and introduces the Demon Hunter class. You can snag the expansion's standard package for $50, or go all-in and pay $70 for a digital deluxe version.

World of WarCraft's previous expansion, Warlords of Draenor, released in 2014. Blizzard recently announced plans to crank out add-on packs at a faster clip, a decision made in response to player complaints that content dried up too quickly, leading to subscription drop-offs until the next expansion landed.

Legion unlocks at 12:00 am Pacific / 3:00 am Eastern.
