Those looking at pre-purchasing the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion for long-running MMO World of Warcraft will be happy to hear that Blizzard are now making the boost to level 90 bonus available ahead of the expansions launch.
The announcement was made in a status report on the official website, which revealed that alongside the level 90 boost to one character, the extra fluff content like collector's edition mount and pet will also be made available on pre-purchase of the expansion.
"That’s a little different from the plan we laid out at BlizzCon, but based on the feedback, it’s obvious that many of you would like the chance to get acquainted with a new class before heading into the expansion. This will also give more players the opportunity to experience the current end-game content and the events leading up to Garrosh’s exodus to Draenor. Maybe you’ll get your Legendary cloak from Wrathion and level 90–100 Heirloom weapon in the process."
In addition to offering the level 90 boost, Blizzard has also been "evaluating ways" to make it possible for players to purchase multiple character boosts through their new in-game store. This interesting new feature will be seen through the Public Test Realm soon, where players will be able to test and ensure it is up to scratch.
Warlords of Draenor will be available for purchase "soon" says Blizzard, with both standard and collector's edition as usual. The developer also stated that closed beta testing is soon at hand, so ensure you've got all your details up-to-scratch for your chance to be picked. No release date has yet been announced but we can expect it to be sometime this year.
