I hope for your sake you’re prepared, because we’re going back to Outland! Today at BlizzConline, Blizzard announced the next stage of their World of Warcraft Classic initiative in The Burning Crusade Classic, an authentic reproduction of the beloved 2007 expansion set.
The Burning Crusade was World of Warcraft‘s first expansion pack, released all the way back in January 2007, and introduced many features that became staples of the game to this day, such as rated PVP, varied difficulty in dungeons, 10-man raiding, and flying mounts. TBC introduced new races in the Blood Elves and Draenei, and marked the first time that all classes were available for play by both factions, as paladins were playable on the Horde via Blood Elves, and shamans were playable on the Alliance via Draenei.
Like “vanilla” Classic, The Burning Crusade Classic will be included as part of your existing World of Warcraft subscription. Players who already have a character in Classic can move their character to a TBC Classic realm to start the journey to level 70, or they may start fresh from level 1.
The Burning Crusade Classic will be released some time in 2021.
