Numbers are beginning to climb again for World of Warcraft, something developer Blizzard has attributed to the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion.

Following the Iron Tide update earlier this week, subscrier numbers have improved from 6.8 to 7.4 million, Blizzard has announced. The number increase is also likely due in part to excitement over the upcoming expansion, which Blizzard says has been preordered more than 1.5 million times.

Warlords of Draenor is set for release November 13.
