The World of Warcraft Classic experience is very different from the Azeroth we know today, but we love it for what it is and what it stands for.

World of Warcraft Classic was first revealed during the BlizzCon 2017 keynote with the mission, according to Blizzard, to "reproduce the game experience that we all enjoyed from the original classic WoW without the launch experience".

Following the beta, Blizzard will also be holding several Stress Tests for World of Warcraft Classic running from May through to July, which active WoW players can opt into via the Account Management section of their Battle.net account. That decision followed years of fans doing the same "behind" Blizzard's back, though their attempt to do so was an open secret-one that Blizzard battledaggressively. Blizzard said that the dates are subject to change, and beta participants can be chosen on additional factors such as time subscribed to the game. 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. And the good news is that subsequent stress tests will extend the opportunity to even more players.

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.

Intel processors hit with another serious security flaw impacting millions of PCs
While fixes may be starting to become available, it will take time for them to be applied to PCs and servers affected by the four variants.

WoW Classic is included for all subscribers at no cost, and those with an active sub can opt-in to the invite-only closed beta, scheduled for May 15.

On those dates and times, players will get to begin exploring the continents of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms as they fight for the Horde or the Alliance.

Players who want to secure their name for WoW Classic can create their character starting on August 13.
