With the release of Warlords Of Draenor on Nov. 13, Subscription prices in the UK region for Blizzard’s MMORPG World Of Warcraft will be increased.
The information was revealed by Blizzard community manager Taepsilum on the World of Warcraft forums for the Europe region.
According to the post, the retail pricing of the subscription periods will be increased to £9.99 for 30 days, £28.17 for 90 days, and £52.14 for 180 days. The 60-day prepaid time card will have a price tag of £20.99.
Currently, subscription pricing for the game are £8.99 for 30 days, £25.17 for 90 days, and £46.14 for 180 days.
Though there is some good news for the players with auto-renew subscriptions. They will retain the old prices for the next two years, all the way up until these changes are implemented on November 13. Blizzard noted that it will send the players a reminder two months before the price increase, so they will have time to choose their preferred plan accordingly.
Subscription numbers for the game have been going down recently and it might have played a part in this.
A Blizzard spokesperson also told IGN that they currently have no subscription changing planes for New Zealand and Australia but still it won’t be surprising if we see this increase in pricing for other regions in the near future.
World Of Warcraft expansion Warlords Of Draenor is coming on Nov. 13 along with these changes in subscription pricing.
