|After a false start, Blizzard's World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade
Classic beta is now officially underway. When it's released later this
year, the Classic expansion will recreate World of Warcraft as it was
after the original 2007 Burning Crusade expansion, which added the
Outland, flying mounts, and two new races, the draenei and blood elves.
Unfortunately for those hoping to experience the beloved expansion early
(again) before the beta's end date, getting into the Burning Crusade
Classic beta isn't as easy as starting up the game.To get more news

worth noting players will face a choice with their existing characters:
All current WoW Classic realms are set to switch to Burning
Crusade-content "Progression" realms in Burning Crusade Classic, so
players will have to decide whether to automatically transition to one
of these or to deliberately migrate to new "Era" realms, where content
will remain limited to Shadow of the Necropolis on Azeroth.
Additionally, at some point soon, the game client will be updated so
that draenei and blood elf characters can reach levels as high as 60
before the expansion debuts.
Signing up for the beta requires a
Battle.net account with an active World of Warcraft subscription, at
which stage players can opt in via Blizzard's website. Participation is
invite-only, so players will need to wait for Blizzard to toggle account
access. Once that's enabled, however, players can launch the Battle.net
app, select World of Warcraft, and click "Game Version" from the
drop-down menu over the "Play" button to find the Burning Crusade
install option. With installation complete, it's time to choose a test
server, as well as whether to create a new character or copy one over
from regular World of Warcraft Classic.
As of late March,
Blizzard has yet to say when the WoW: Burning Crusade Classic beta will
end. The finished expansion is due later in 2021, which likely means a
length of a few months, at most. Duration is likely to vary based on how
stable and balanced gameplay is, so the rockier the code, the more time
it may take. Blizzard has also promised to respond to community
feedback; a strong outcry could force time-consuming design changes.
Burning Crusade beta currently caps players at level 64, and Blizzard
has disabled third-party add-ons and PvP content. Players who want to
visit Outland but don't have a level-58 character will be able to take
advantage of a Character Boost service closer to launch. Once it exits
testing, World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic will otherwise be
free to everyone with a World of Warcraft subscription.
