World of Warcraft is now free until you hit level 20

For active World of Warcraft players, the week’s big news is all centered around patch 4.2, Rage of the Firelands. Namely, it’s out! This is the page to see if you’re wondering what’s new.

More interesting to me and the rest of us non-WoW players, however, is Blizzard’s revamp of the way trials for the game are handled. Gone are the trials restricted by time; instead, anyone with a Battle.net account can now play up to level 20 with the newly branded World of Warcraft Starter Edition.

What’s more, the company has WoW and The Burning Crusade bundled together digitally for $19.99, and everyone who already owns the base game will get this first expansion at no additional cost. Between this and Team Fortress 2, productivity has to be going down the toilet lately.
