You Don't Need to Buy World of Warcraft Anymore

But that's apparently a thing of the past.

Blizzard has announced that World of Warcraft players will no longer have to purchase the original base game to gain access to the game and its previous expansions - all players will need is an active subscription. "Starting today, new players can gain access to all World of Warcraft content up through and including the Legion expansion simply by becoming a subscriber-you no longer need to purchase the original World of Warcraft base game". But now, as the Battle.net subscription page makes clear, all that is required to get started in World of Warcraft is a monthly subscription. But if you're yet to jump into the MMO, it's never been cheaper or bigger than it is now.

Blizzard has now tweaked how new users can play the game, by removing the Battle Chest completely.

We are the two great nuclear powers, we have 90 percent of the nuclear, and that is not a good thing, it is a bad thing. He said Russian Federation remained the " most aggressive foreign actor" trying to disrupt the US political system.

One of the few that is able to keep that going though, is World of Warcraft and it's now doubled down on that idea by offering all of its expansions for free, if you pay the subscription fee of between $13 and $15 a month. First, you needed to buy the game, which comes with 30 days of free play time. Well, it's still releasing the expansions - including the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion - and is showing no signs of stopping, but gamers don't have to buy any actual games.

The Battle of Azeroth expansion arrives on August 14 and will cost $49.99 for the Standard Edition, $69.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition, or $99.99 for the Collector's Edition.
