Blizzard has revealed the launch date for the next expansion of their long-running World of Warcraft online game. More details were shown from the official Blizzard press release.

Legion focuses on the story after the events on the fifth expansion Warlords of Draenor, where the warlock Gul’dan, who betrayed the orcs, unleashes another wave of demons to invade Azeroth, where the Alliance and the Horde must uncover the mysteries of the Broken Isles and make a pact with the Demon Hunters of the Illidari.

Here are some of the new features that the Legion expansion will be adding:

  • New Hero Class: Demon Hunter—Unleash the demon within as an all-new melee hero class gifted with preternatural mobility—and the ability to metamorphose into hellish new forms.
  • New Feature: Artifact Weapons—Smite the Legion with class-specific weapons of lore. Unlock abilities and traits, and customize your weapon to suit your needs.
  • New Continent: The Broken Isles—Discover the fate of a lost night elf civilization, confront twisted fragments of the Emerald Nightmare, and hunt agents of the Legion in all-new zones. Forge your own path through the Broken Isles as you explore content that dynamically scales to your level.
  • Boost to Level 100—Come fully prepared to battle the Legion with a level-100 character boost, and fight alongside your friends in this epic new chapter of World of Warcraft—available immediately upon pre-purchase†.
  • New Feature: Class Hall—Gather with fellow members of your class and unite followers of your order—including iconic characters from Warcraft lore—to carry out missions at your command.
  • New PvP Honor System—Fight for fame, glory, and a range of new PvP-specific powers as you face the opposing faction in Arenas and Battlegrounds.

The sixth expansion will have a standard pack, digital deluxe pack with in-game bonuses ranging from an Illidari Felstalker mount and pet for World of Warcraft, a Felstalker mount for Heroes of the Storm®, a helm transmog and wings for Diablo® III, and a pair of fel-infused StarCraft® II portraits and finally a collector’s edition, where it includes a full-color hardcover art book, a behind-the-scenes two-disc Blu-ray/DVD set, a CD soundtrack, and a Legion mouse pad. Expect to see Legion on Aug. 30 for PC.
