The Dragonflight expansion of World of Warcraft has been given a release date, with the launch expected for the 28th November this year.
The Dragon Isles, the long-hidden ancestral home of dragonkind, is the first major addition to Dragonflight''s starting zone. This opens up four new sections - the Waking Shores starting zone, the frozen Azure Span, and the majestic Thaldraszus.
Dragonflight introduces a new playable race-class hybrid (a first for WoW) known as the Dracthyr Evokers, which can switch between human and draconic forms. Depending on a player''s chosen class specializations, its focus is damage dealing or healing.
Elsewhere, Dragonflight adds a new skill-based flight system that includes customisable dragon companions, as well as upgrades to some of World of Warcraft''s existing mechanics, including revamps for the game''s talent system, improved professions, and an updated UI.
Blizzard has announced full regional launch dates on the World of Warcraft website. Dragonflight will be available at midnight on 28th November, equates to midnight CET on 29th November for those in Europe. As for the US, expect a slightly earlier launch time of 3pm PST on 28th November, which, according to Blizzard, is intended to align its release with other territories.
