Blizzard launches World of Warcraft: Dragonflight closed beta

Blizzard has launched a closed beta for World of Warcraft’s Dragonflight expansion. The developer states that not every interested player will be able to access the beta initially. The beta includes new areas and a new class in the dragon race, the Evoker.

Players who the closed beta of the Dragonflight expansion want to test, can from Blizzard’s website for registration. If access to the closed beta has been granted, players will receive an email after which the expansion can be downloaded via the Battle.net app. Word of Warcraft: Dragonflight closed beta includes new areas such as Ohn’ahran Plains, Thaldrazus, Valdrakken, The Waking Shores, and the Azure Span, among others. It will also be possible to play with the new class within the dragon race, the Evoker.

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight was announced in April this year. The game takes place in Azeroth. The presale of the expansion has already started. Digitally there are Basic, Heroic and Epic versions for sale, for 50, 70 and 90 euros. The more expensive versions include extras such as a boost to level 60, a Tangled Dreamweaver Flying Mount, and the new Murkastraza pet. The Epic version has a few more digital extras and includes 30 days of game time.

The expansion will also be released physically as a Collector’s Set. It contains a key for the digital Epic version and a number of physical objects such as a book and a mouse pad. The Collector Set should cost 130 euros and will be shipped as soon as the game comes out. Blizzard said in June that Dragonflight should be released “later this year.” An exact release date was not disclosed.
