Gamers who are interested in getting their hands on the game can do so by pre-purchasing it in which it will be available as a standard digital download, or a digital deluxe download that will come with additional perks and bonuses for Blizzard’s other games. The standard version will retail for $50 while the digital deluxe version will go for $70.

Legion was announced last year and it will be the latest expansion in the World of Warcraft franchise. It will feature a new Demon Hunter class and it will also raise the level cap from 100 to 110. Gamers who don’t want to have to grind from level 1 to 110 will be pleased to learn that buying the game will also nab them a free level boost to 100, meaning all they need to do is play the new zones to level up.

It was previously hinted that Blizzard could introduce a trial boost system where players could test out a character class at level 100 to determine if this is what they wanted before locking their decision in. Previously once players had chosen the character they wanted to boost, there was no turning back.
