BlizzCon is going on right now. During BlizzCon they tend to announce some pretty big things and this has to be up there with announcing new expansions and release dates. This one is a doozy, and, frankly, is what they need right about now with all the other madness going on in the MMO world.
Mike Morhaime, who just got off stage at BlizzCon 2011, just announced what they’re calling a “World of Warcraft Annual Pass”. This is a way to sign up for a year’s worth of WoW gaming, billed monthly. So, it’s sort of like a contract with your wireless company, of sorts. Now, that’s not the best part – the good thing is that, if you sign up for this WoW Annual Pass, you will receive the FULL version of Diablo III (yes, that’s the new one) for FREE. In addition to that, everyone signing up for this annual pass will receive beta access to the next World of Warcraft expansion, and an in-game mount for the monster MMO.
Yes, you heard me. If you intend to play both WoW and Diablo III, you’re going to want to sign up for this annual pass. If you’re a WoW player, how can you pass up a free copy of possibly one of the most popular games of next year? You can sign up for the WoW Annual Pass now on Blizzard’s site by going to your account information page and clicking the link to sign up for the WoW Annual Pass.
