The middle of the year is usually a good time to get into MMOs. But if you're not sure what to play, or you've been thinking about returning to the land of Azeroth for a bit, then there's World of Warcraft: Legion.
The full game isn't out until the end of August. But if you'd like to give the beta a go, we've got 500 keys to give away.
As a small reminder, here's some of the new bells and whistles that Legion is adding to Blizzard's long-running MMO:
New Hero Class: Demon Hunter—Unleash the demon within as an all-new melee hero class gifted with preternatural mobility—and the ability to metamorphose into hellish new forms.
New Feature: Artifact Weapons—Smite the Legion with class-specific weapons of lore. Unlock abilities and traits, and customize your weapon to suit your needs.
New Continent: The Broken Isles—Discover the fate of a lost night elf civilization, confront twisted fragments of the Emerald Nightmare, and hunt agents of the Legion in all-new zones. Forge your own path through the Broken Isles as you explore content that dynamically scales to your level.
Boost to Level 100—Come fully prepared to battle the Legion with a level-100 character boost, and fight alongside your friends in this epic new chapter of World of Warcraft—available immediately upon pre-purchase†.
New Feature: Class Hall—Gather with fellow members of your class and unite followers of your order—including iconic characters from Warcraft lore—to carry out missions at your command.
New PvP Honor System—Fight for fame, glory, and a range of new PvP-specific powers as you face the opposing faction in Arenas and Battlegrounds.
The main hook for many people will undoubtedly be the Demon Hunter hero class. People have been wanting to represent Illidan's kind for years, and while your progress and access won't carry over from the beta to release it'll be fun to see what Blizzard is doing with Demon Hunters.
