World of Warcraft Dragon Flight extension’s going to release sooner than expected

Dragon flight, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, is scheduled to debut later this year. The forthcoming expansion, which is set in the long-lost Dragon Isles, still doesn't have a specific release date, but it appears to be coming sooner than some fans had anticipated.

In a press release, Blizzard Entertainment provided details on how to pre-order the expansion and its bonus items as well as the expansion's 2022 release date.

The base edition of Dragon flight costs $49.99 and comes with the expansion and Drakks, a miniature dragon pet. Drakks, a cuddly Murloc dragon companion named Murkastrasza, a level 60 boosts, and a Tangled Dreamweaver flying mount are all included in the Heroic edition ($69.99).

The entire aforementioned are included in the $89.99 Epic edition along with diadem and cape cosmetics and 30 days of playtime. Another option is a $129.99 boxed collector's set that includes an art book, pins, and a mouse pad.

The Dragon Isles transports players from the Shadowlands back to Azeroth, where they can explore the dragons' ancient home.

There are four new areas, a level ceiling of 70, dragon-powered aerial mobility, a new character type based on the formidable Dracthyr race, and an Evoker hero class.
