The World of Warcraft Burning Crusade Classic beta is live now

0

Opt-in beta testers allowed

It's time to enter a new era of World of Warcraft Classic. The best era of World of Warcraft. Flame shield, up!

Although Wrath of the Lich King is arguably the most popular bit of World of Warcraft history, Burning Crusade was one of the strongest, if not the strongest; at least in my experience with the game since the original Vanilla launch.

The new races added so much into the mix, and the raids were some of the best Blizzard had ever designed, particularly from a lore perspective. Sure it was a time sink, but not as much as Vanilla, and Burning Crusade brought a lot of depth and complexity into the mix without feeling overwhelming.

All that said, it's time to relive that era again in "Classic" form. As previously announced at BlizzConline, the Burning Crusade beta is ready to go and is live today if you opt-in. Blizzard claims that the Classic continuation is still ready to go this year, and will exist on separate realms from "Vanilla Classic," so you can choose to stay in Vanilla world forever if you want.

Oh, and it still comes with a standard WoW subscription. It's a win-win.
