This means that, for the price of the game's monthly subscription, any player can now log in and access all of the content from both the base World of Warcraft experience and all six of its now available expansions (including Legion).
Check out the World of Warcraft page on the Blizzard Shop for more information. The monthly subscription fee now offers access to all content up to and including Legion.
You'll still need to purchase Battle for Azeroth separately, however, if you want to access expansion content.
The Battle for Azeroth pre-patch launched overnight, bringing a host of new content to the game in preparation for the expansion's proper launch on August 14.
Blizzard has tweaked the charging structure for World of Warcraft, meaning there are effectively no upfront fees to start playing the long-running MMO.

Maria Butina is in court today to face charges of conspiracy and being an unregistered foreign agent of Russian Federation . Butina had been living in Washington since 2016, after coming to the US on a student visa to study at American University.
It's a big offering by Blizzard as well, as it includes the base game and all of its recent expansions, including: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, and Legion.
If you're trying to get your friends into the game, you can now gift either the expansion or the Complete Collection to friends.
Personally, it's a great thing moving ahead, as this may gradually change how Blizzard employs their expansion strategies.
As for Battle for Azeroth? This new model, while it will probably annoy all the players who already bought the expansions, will lower the barrier of entry for new players. With so much content included in the subscription, though, I'm sure many players will now wait to see if this latest expansion eventually gets added for free as part of the subscription rather than buying it next month.
