If you have bought a BlizzCon 2018 virtual ticket, you have certainly tested the World of Warcraft: a Classic demo that was made available during the last seven days. Unfortunately, Blizzard has announced that they will soon be withdrawing the demo from the market. In fact, if you still want to try it, this weekend is the last opportunity as the testing version will be taken down on Monday, November 12.
Those of you who got the opportunity to play know that there is a chance to pick a class and a race. However, the limitation was that regardless of your choice, you would begin at level 15 in Westfall for the Alliance or Barrens for the Horde. You were also prevented from accessing the dungeons located nearby.
One of the things that you are able to do is to explore the surroundings by running around and see how your skills work in practice. You also have the chance to perform some quests in the zone where the game placed you. However, you are not able to upgrade more than level 19, which Blizzard mark as the upper cap of progress in the demo.
After this weekend, we will have to wait for a long time for World of Warcraft: Classic to get its official version. It is expected to appear during summer 2019. If you are a subscriber of WoW at that point, the package will include the Classic version.
How to Play Wow: Classic Demo?
While you still have the time, head to the Battle.net and log into your account. Once you are logged in, check out the menu called “Region/Account” and you will find the option to try the game. However, keep in mind that it is mandatory to have a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket as the game is available only to holders of this precious item.
There is also a restriction in place – the demo has a 90-minute cooldown and during that period you can play for a maximum of 60 minutes. In other words, you will have to take a half an hour break every hour.
The new version of the game will return the franchise to its roots or, to be more precise, to 2004 and the stage where no expansions were available for the game.
