World of Warcraft's sixth expansion, Legion, will be released in summer 2016, Blizzard announced today during the BlizzCon 2015 opening ceremonies.

Legion is currently available for pre-order. Those who pre-order the expansion will receive early access to the demon hunter class. The pre-order also immediately grants one character boost to level 100. You can check out the cinematic trailer, revealed today, above.

World of Warcraft: Legion will include a new continent called The Broken Isles. The level cap will be increased from level 100 to level 110, and a reworked player-versus-player honor system will also be in effect. New artifact weapons are being introduced that will allow players to customize legendary weapons.
