Blizzard made a ton of big announcements at this year’s BlizzCon, but none so big as their thank you to World of Warcraft fans in the form of the World of Warcraft Annual Pass. While it may sound like just a new subscription plan, there’s a bit more to it that that.
To qualify for the Annual Pass, you must have registered a full version of World of Warcraft before October 18. Signing up for this subscription service (which is payable in 12 monthly installments) will then commit you to a year’s worth of WoW. Sounds pretty standard so far, right? But here’s where the awesomeness comes in.
All Annual Pass subscribers will receive a free copy of Diablo III, an exclusive WoW mount (Tyrael’s Charger), and guaranteed entry in the beta test for the next WoW expansion (the just-announced World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria).
That’s Blizzard saying “thank you” to all current WoW subscribers. You can sign up for the Annual Pass at Blizzard.com now.
