Past World of Warcraft Expansions are Now Free for Subscribers

This means that for the usual price of $14.99 per month, players can now access all of World of Warcraft's previously released content without having to make separate purchases.

But that's apparently a thing of the past. The monthly subscription fee now offers access to all content up to and including Legion. The listing on the official website states that subscribers will get "access to World of Warcraft and every expansion through Legion with your subscription" with "no additional purchase required". "Begin your journey today and play up to level 110 through six expansions of adventure!" Thanks to recent changes to how the game is sold, players can either set up a recurring payment for the subscription itself or - like I do - play for time cards so that those times you just need to take a break and play something else you're not still paying for a stagnant game. This way, if you get interested and decide to invest more time, you can just spend all the money you were planning on spending on expansions on pets and other cool stuff in-game instead. But if you're yet to jump into the MMO, it's never been cheaper or bigger than it is now. Now, World of Warcraft is trying something a bit different.

According to this announcement post on the World of Warcraft website, the initial box cost for the game has been removed entirely.

This will likely change whenever the next expansion is nearing release. This new model, while it will probably annoy all the players who already bought the expansions, will lower the barrier of entry for new players.
