World of Warcraft developer Blizzard Entertainment has shaken up its monthly subscription for the perpetually popular fantasy romp, with the £9.99 fee now bagging you access to the base game and all current expansions.

This means you won't have to part with more of your hard-earned cash to access any additional content for World of Warcraft, bar the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion. That'll set you back £39.99 when it launches next month.

Still, you get everything up to and including 2016's Legion for ten quid a month, and sees you through to level 110.

Previously, things were quite different. Aside from buying the game itself, you had to pony up the cash for any expansions you wanted, plus a monthly fee. So yeah, it's fair to say Blizzard has changed things for the better.

World of Warcraft has been knocking around since 2004, although that hasn't stopped people from flocking to it all these years on thanks to a steady stream of fresh content. 

Battle for Azeroth is due out on August 14.
