Ever since the release of Cataclysm, World of Warcraft has been taking quite some heat and losing a fair number of its subscribers. With Diablo III coming in the near future, Blizzard has revealed a new subscription plan that will help the company hold on to its precious subscribers.
Dubbed the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, the new subscription method will allow players to enter a 12-month subscription commitment. Luckily for players concerned with breaking their banks, the plan lets players either pay on a monthly basis at $14.99 per month or use a different billing plan of their choosing.
For current WoW subscribers, this means there won't be much of a change other than the fact that they won't be able to cancel their account for a year. The commitment could be a turn-off to some subscribers, but the rewards are definitely tempting. For a limited time, WoW Annual Pass subscribers will get a digital version of Diablo III for free, along with the new Tyrael's Charger in-game mount. In addition, subscribers will also be granted guaranteed access to the upcoming WoW Expansion Beta Test.
