In preparation for patch 5.2, the entire of World of Warcraft has had its price slashed by up to 70%! Blizzard posted earlier today on the EU forums regarding this WoW sale:
The Thunder King’s return looms on the horizon, and to prepare for the storm, Blizzard has just slashed prices on all World of Warcraft games by up to 70%! Now is the time to recruit your friends to begin their epic quest in Azeroth. But hurry-this deal ends February 25.
Price in pound sterling is £4 for Battle Chest, £6 for Cataclysm and £15 for Mists of Pandaria.
The US WoW sale offers the Battle Chest for $5, Cataclysm for $10, and Mists of Pandaria for $20. US players can get either the boxed version or the digital version for this price, not including shipping.
Players in the EU are getting the short straw here, if they want a box and disc version of any of the WoW sale items, as, unfortunately, physical products are currently unavailable from the EU Blizzard Store. If it’s boxed versions you’re after, as opposed to digital downloads, and you’re EU-based, then the US Blizzard Store or a third party retailer is your only option. If you choose to buy from Blizzard’s US Store, do take care to check that the game or expansion you’re buying can be played in your region.
Do remember that the Battle Chest now includes Wrath of the Lich King, as well as a month’s free game time, and that all races can now be played by all players, regardless of whether or not they have the expansions that introduced them, so if you want to play a Worgen, Goblin or a Pandaren, you can do so with just the Battle Chest. This is also an excellent choice for anyone seeking the Recruit-a-Friend XP bonuses or newly added mount.
This blowout sale must end February 25th, adding weight to the assertions that patch 5.2 will launch February 26th. Do check out our guide to getting ready for patch 5.2! Is this Blizz hoping to regain lost subs?!
