Warlords of Draenor will be dropping in Spring of this year, Blizzard has announced. That means either September, October or November, but that doesn't mean you have to sit around twiddling your thumbs. You can buy it right now from the Blizzard website — and, even better, you can buy it in Australian dollars, which the company is now allowing for all purchases.

Players who pre-purchase the game will be able to take advantage of one of the expansions features straight away: boosting one character to level 90. Additional characters can be boosted to level 90 for a price — AU$66. The rest, though — including player housing — will have to wait until the expansion arrives.

Warlords of Draenor is available for AU$54.95 as a digital download, AU$59.95 as a physical copy, or the Deluxe Edition for AU$74.95, which contains in-game bonus content for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II and Diablo III: a Dread Raven Mount and Dead Hatchling Pet for World of Warcraft; Warchief Portraits for StarCraft II; and the Warsong Pennant for Diablo III.

If you want to spend a little more, the Collector's Edition comes in at AU$99.95, and includes the Deluxe Edition bonus digital content, a Warlords of Draenor mouse pad, hardcover art book, a CD soundtrack and DVD/Blu-ray documentary of behind-the-scenes.

Features of the expansion include a new level cap of 100, a new world (Draenor), and a few other tweaks. You can read all about them here .
