World of Warcraft Classic release date

World of Warcraft Classic release date”

World of Warcraft Classic, the retro re-release of WoW in its near-original state, will launch on August 27, 2019.

That said, even if you don't make it early on in the beta, Blizzard notes that there will be a series of stress tests throughout the summer, with increasing numbers of players being invited to participate. Before the game goes live there will be both beta and stress tests. The method for signing up will be the same as the main WoW Classic beta - open up your Battle.net account settings and make sure you're opted in for Classic betas in addition to standard WoW betas.

Much like the developers of RuneScape (Jagex) learned back in 2013 when they launched "Old School RuneScape" (a nostalgic, 2007-themed version of the browser MMO), World of Warcraft developer Blizzard has found that there's a significant demand for a similar "Classic" server.

It includes the usual in-game bonus items and various collectibles such as a statue of Ragnaros the Firelord ('by fire be purged!') and a mouse mat sporting a map of Azeroth, among other goodies. It will release on October 8 for $100, and you can pre-purchase from the Blizzard store.

World of Warcraft Classic, an instance of how the game was at launch before any of its numerous expansions launched, will be releasing on August 26-27 depending on region. Blizzard says it considers that era to be the correct balance of the game resembling its original launch state while also having ironed out some of the rough spots of launch.

If you're already a WoW subscriber, you get access to Classic as well at no extra cost.

Regardless, players will discover Blizzard's plans for themselves in the months following Classic's official release.
