When can you play World of Warcraft: Dragonflight?

Activision Blizzard has confirmed a November 28 release date for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. The expansion was officially revealed on April 19, 2022, along with a cinematic trailer and many other details. Fans have long speculated that the expansion would release in November 2022 because it was revealed when pre-orders opened that the expansion would be releasing this year. The end of November was also when Shadowlands launched two years ago.

Activision Blizzard has been testing the expansion via a beta for some time now and has made many changes and adjustments to the game based on player feedback. The game will also feature the Winds of Wisdom experience buff leading up to the release date for the final version of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight.

Dragonflight introduces quite a few new things to the already massive game. Dragonriding will allow players to soar the skies with unseen momentum. Per player request, the talent system is being completely reworked to incorporate the best of both the old and new. The expansion also introduces both a new race and a new class. The dragonoid Dracthyr race will have the Evoker class available for it, with mid-range caster and healer specializations. Rounding up the package is a completely reworked UI. All in all, it’s shaping up to be an intriguing expansion for the long-running MMO.
