World of Warcraft developers decided to do away with additional payments for the base game and expansions, making them practically free for newcomers to the game series. Warcraft has always been one of the most recognizable MMOs in the world, with a film and several expansions, and continuous support by the developers for the base game which came out in 2004. After more than a decade, the game is still going strong and the fan base has been growing steadily.
Now in a new move, the people working at Blizzard decided to ditch selling the game and expansions and made them completely gratis, making fans happy and newcomers intent on trying the world famous MMO out. However, this does not mean that you can start playing the game right away without any upfront cost. The bad news is the subscription cost is still in place, which means that you still have to pay roughly £10 per month to be able to play the game. Furthermore, the new expansion to the game, called Battle for Azeroth, is still going to be sold at normal market prices for new games, which will be £39.99 for the UK. As such, the game is still far from being the most cost friendly MMO in the market. That title probably goes to the likes of Neverwinter Nights and World of Tanks, among others, which have no monthly subscription cost and do not require Playstation Plus subscription for Playstation 4 users.
