Blizzard has confirmed it will release World of Warcraft Classic in August. The classic version will be available to all paying World of Warcraft players. A closed beta starts on Wednesday.
World of Warcraft Classic is a faithful recreation of the original World of Warcraft: it runs a bit smoother on today’s PCs, but the game still looks and feels like you’re playing World of Warcraft from 2006.
Players who already have a World of Warcraft subscription can sign up for the closed beta test. Blizzard will randomly select participants for this first a small-scale test. The studio will invite more players at a later date. These tests take place between May and July.
