subscription options

To play World of Warcraft, you need to either set up a recurring subscription or purchase chunks of game time. Subscribing is fast, simple, and secure. Here’s how it works.

Buying Game Time

Prepaid Game Cards are an easy way to create a new subscription or extend an existing one. They are sold in most game stores for €26.99 / £19.99 and add 60 calendar days of play time to an account. They also make great gifts!

Alternatively, you can buy game time from the Blizzard Store in increments of 30, 90, or 180 days. You can use the time yourself or email the time code to a friend as a gift. You can check your account’s remaining time on the Account Management website.

Pounds sterling (GBP) subscription prices will change on November 13. See here for details.
