World of Warcraft Classic gets release date, beta test

World Of Warcraft Classic Release Date Announced, Beta Starting This Week World of Warcraft Classic Release Date and 15-Year Anniversary Collector's Edition Announced
Emmett Howard | 18 May, 2019, 05:01

Activision Blizzard announced the release date of World of Warcraft Classic: August 27, 2019, at 00.00.

Go to the BattleNet World of Warcraft page and down under the video on the left side under Region/Account, click on the drop down menu and click on Beta: Classic. The game, the developer promised, would be just as it was around the time it first launched over a decade ago. A release date and time for the Classic version of World of Warcraft had not been revealed, however, until Tuesday, May 14th when the official release date and time for the highly anticipated game were announced to the community.

In April 2016, Blizzard began closing down classic WoW unauthorized servers to the dismay of fans.

Beginning on May 15, certain WoW players will be invited to "participate in a small-scale, focused closed beta test, helping ensure WoW Classic nails its goal of authenticity".

Internet sensation Grumpy Cat passes away
Now, I am aware of the fact that Grumpy Cat must've been a lot of people's favourite meme and this news must be devastating. She first rose to prominence six years ago, after her owner posted a photo to Reddit, captioned "Meet grumpy cat ".

Blizzard will be also holding a stress test each month leading up to launch of the server.

And if you can't wait to claim your favorite consonant-filled Tauren druid name on the WoW Classic server of your choice, mark the heck out of your calendar.

Alongside the WoW Classic announcement is the news that World of Warcraft will be getting a 15-year anniversary collector's edition which includes a statue of Ragnaros, art prints, mounts, a pin, and and map. While the stress tests won't be quite as limited as the beta itself, Blizzard makes the usual disclaimer that opting in doesn't guarantee access. Players who make it through this epic trial will earn the Obsidian Worldbreaker mount, created to evoke the awful visage of the ancient Dragon Aspect Deathwing the Destroyer.

There will also be activities in the current expansion, Battle for Azeroth, to celebrate the game's 15th anniversary on November 23rd. You can purchase it for $99, and you can pre-order the item right now from Blizzard's store.
