World of Warcraft: Dragonflight release times — when is the new expansion coming out?

Take flight soon, all across the world.

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is nearly out, bringing with it a whole new land to explore, new systems, new dangers, collectables, and more.

As usual with the new WoW expansion launch, there’s going to be an exciting rush to jump in and explore the world as soon as possible. There’s no time quite like the first 24 hours of a new expansion!

This page outlines the World of Warcraft: Dragonflight release times, as well as a brief overview of everything you’ve got to look forward to in the new expansion.

You've gotta watch the new cinematic if you haven't already!

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight release time, date

The World of Warcraft: Dragonflight release date is Monday October 28.

On top of that, Activision Blizzard has released detailed release times across all their major regions, so we know exactly when the new adventure will start.

The World of Warcraft: Dragonflight global release times are:

  • USA West Coast (PST) — 3PM
  • USA East Coast (EST) — 6PM
  • UK (GMT) — 11PM

Bear in mind if you’re planning on playing minute one, is that you’ll be joined by hordes (and alliances, I guess) of other like minded players all trying the same thing. It will likely be hectic, so don’t be surprised if you have loads of contest for profession nodes or certain quests.
