The image also details some pre-purchase bonuses, including a Level 100 character boost and early access to the new Demon Hunter hero class. A standard edition of the game will be priced at $49.99. On top of that, the digital deluxe edition will include an in-game mount, pet, and digital content for Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 for $69.99.

World of Warcraft: Legion was first announced at Gamescom in August this year. The expansion will raise the level cap to 110 and introduce a new class called the Demon Hunter. Legion will add a host of new content including a new continent titled The Broken Isles, new customisable artifact weapons, and new dungeons and raids. The expansion will also revamp the player-versus-player progression system.

The beta for World of Warcraft: Legion starts this year. Players can sign up to participate on the Battle.net website. For more details on what's new in Legion, check out our previous coverage.
