Veterans and hardy newcomers alike can now experience Azeroth as it was in its earliest days with World of Warcraft Classic, which went live today and included at no increased cost as part of everyone’s WoW subscription globally. World of Warcraft Classic represent a labor of love for Blizzard, and the result is an authentic re-creation of the pre-expansion game in its most feature-complete state, as it was during 2006’s “Drums of War” update (patch 1.12.0).
“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re overjoyed to welcome our friends, new and old to classic Azeroth. The community’s excitement is infectious and deeply motivating—it’s clear they’re as thrilled as we are to relive the World of Warcraft Classic experience. We look forward to rediscovering its wonders and challenges together with them, starting today.” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.
According to the press release, this is just the start for WoW Classic, with the following weeks having more to add, for example Blackwing Lair, the iconic raid.
