Blizzard Entertainment is really commited to its goal to bring World of Warcraft to gamers around the world. It has just announced that on August 6, 2008, the Russian version of the popular massive multiplayer online rpg (MMORPG) and the The Burning Crusade expansion pack will be released in Russia.
There will be both Windows and Mac versions of World of Warcraft and the expansion sold on the release date, as well as two different buying options. People can buy a DVD box version with a one month subscription or a CD box version with a 14-day subscription. There will also be Russian accounts with a 359 ruble month-to-month plan, a 329 ruble three month plan and a 299 ruble six month plan. (Note: All plans cost a monthly fee, but if you commit for longer, you’ll get a better price.)
If Russian players already have a European World of Warcraft account and game, they will be able to change the language and modify their accounts. The official Russian World of Warcraft site will have a language pack, and there will be a temporary period where existing European players can transfer their accounts and characters to the Russian.
