Blizzard removes upfront fee for new World of Warcraft players

Blizzard does away with World of Warcraft Battle Chest pricing

According to Blizzard's revamped shop page, "Get access to World of Warcraft and every expansion through Legion with your subscription-no additional purchase required". After that, a $14.99 a month subscription was required to keep playing.

This game-changing decision is clearly an approach to attract new players and a great attempt to bring back lapsed players. Now the subscription simply includes the old content - everything up through Legion.

As for Battle for Azeroth?

Mandela served as South Africa's president for one term and forged a democracy which moved on from events of the past. Samantha also responded to an article about Meghan paying tribute to the work of the late Nelson Mandela .

In the past, if you wanted to jump into World of Warcraft, you had to but the Battle Chest, which contained the base game and numerous previously released expansions as a flat, upfront fee, along with needing to fork out for the monthly sub. I hate to think how much all that cost if you purchased each expansion on release. In order to play the game, players always needed to pay the monthly subscription fee along with the price of each expansion or battlechest bundle, to unlock all available contents. This new model, while it will probably annoy all the players who already bought the expansions, will lower the barrier of entry for new players.

Players new and old will still need to buy Battle for Azeroth, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, which now runs at $49.99.
