World of Warcraft Patch 6.0.2 release date revealed

The pre-release patch for Warlords of Draenor, the fifth World of Warcraft expansion, launches in the US tomorrow, with the EU version arriving on Wednesday.

The hefty update, which lays the groundwork for the next few years of adventuring in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game, packs in plenty of changes as WOW approaches its second decade of service. (The last time we checked our background downloader there was still another 8GB of data left to go, so if you’ve switched off automatic downloading in the past, you might want to think about re-enabling it ahead of launch.)

This time around, the traditional pre-expansion world event sees the legions of the Iron Horde invading Azeroth through the Dark Portal, and you’ll be able to pop along when the patch goes live and bop a few of them on the chin.
