A little over six months after its big reveal, World of Warcraft’s Dragonflight expansion has been given a release date, with its release now officially scheduled for November 28 of this year.
As detailed in April, Dragonflight’s first major addition is a new location known as the Dragon Isles, the long-hidden ancestral home of dragons. This, in turn, brings four new areas: the Waking Shores starting area, the expansive plains of Ohn’ahran, the frozen Azure Span, and majestic Thaldraszus, with new dungeons and raids.
Dragonflight also introduces a new playable race class hybrid (a first for WoW) known as Dracthyr Evokers, who can change between human and draconic forms. Depending on a player’s chosen class specializations, their focus is either dealing damage or healing.
Elsewhere, Dragonflight adds a new skill-based flight system tied to customizable dragon companions, as well as improvements to some of World of Warcraft’s existing mechanics, including revamps to the game’s talent system, improved professions, and a new interface. updated user.
As part of the release date announcement, Blizzard has shared the full regional release schedules on the World of Warcraft website. Here in the UK, for example, Dragonflight will be available at 11pm on November 28, which equates to midnight CET on November 29 for those in Europe. As for the US, expect a slightly earlier release at 3 p.m.
