Good news for Warcraft players out there. The next expansion pack of the game will hit gaming stores on August 30. Interested gamers can now pre-order The World of Warcraft: Legions for $49.99 at retailers and on the company's digital shop.

According to IGN, the Legion follows the events of Warlords of Draenor, with the world of Azeroth under attack by huge army of demonic forces. The expansion pack was revealed at Gamescom 2015.

Furthermore, Warcraft's new addition raises the level limit to 110, and it brings a bunch of new content. Players will definitely enjoy a new class called the Demon Hunter, specialized Artifact Weapons and new location called The Broken Isles. Also, the Legion revamps the PvP progression system

A standard version of Legion is available for $50, while a Deluxe version is at $70. The premium package comes with exciting contents and other Blizzard titles, such as StarCraft II, Diablo III and Heroes of the Storm.  World of Warcraft: Legions expansion is available for physical and digital version.

For those who to have more, there is a retail-only Collector's Edition that comes with hardcover art book, behind-the-scenes footage, CD soundtrack and a Warcraft-themed mouse pad. 

Interestingly, buyers who pre-purchase a digital copy of Legion can get exclusive in-game freebies. These lucky gamers will have an instant character boost to level 100 and access to the Demon Hunter class.

Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime told GameSpot that Legion is loaded with new contents that will definitely bring new gaming experience to players.
