World of Warcraft is returning to the Outlands with a comeback of the Burning Crusade Classic expansion, available to all players on June 1st, 2021.
Blizzard has officially announced the return of the Burning Crusade expansion with Burning Crusade Classic, and it will become available to all players starting next month. Along with the expansion comes additional content which includes a new world to explore, two new playable races, and new abilities.
These additions add to the experience for both new and old players, making this release incredibly exciting for fans from the original 2007 release, as well as for those looking for additional content for the very first time.
“Beyond the Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands lies a realm shattered by the machinations of the Burning Legion: Outland, the once beautiful orc homeworld of Draenor. Seek out its mysteries beginning June 1 when Burning Crusade Classic launches around the world.”
Starting May 18th, the pre-expansion patch will be released for download and each character must choose whether to advance onward to Burning Crusade, move to a Classic Era realm, or use the Character Clone service to play in both games.
“Heroes who choose to cross the Dark Portal will find themselves in Hellfire Peninsula, an aptly named barren wasteland, where fel orcs and cruel demons roam free. The established outposts of Thrallmar (for the Horde) and Honor Hold (for the Alliance) are not able to deter this endless tide of darkness on their own. It is up to you to fight for this shattered world to rid it from evil. . . or watch its demonic denizens consume everything you hold dear.”
