​‘World of Warcraft Classic’ Will Release On August 27

​‘World of Warcraft Classic’ Will Release On August 27

Blizzard has announced a release date for the World of Warcraft Classic servers, the legacy version of the game that will let you relive what Azeroth was like at launch. While you have to wait until August 27 to play the official release, an opt-in private beta will be launching tomorrow.

First announced at Blizzcon back in 2017, World of Warcraft players have been calling for a legacy server for years (and opting for less than legal versions for even longer). The Legacy server will let you play the MMO like it was still 2004.

If you manage to get into the beta then you'll be able to start playing from tomorrow, though it's not exactly the version that will release in August. You will only be able to play up to level 30, so unfortunately that means you won't be able to get a mount, but you will still be able immerse yourself in that positively ancient version of Azeroth.

If you want to sign up for a chance to get into the beta then head over to the World of Warcraft Classic site. The beta won't give you free reign to see the whole world, the developers will be looking to test specific sections of the game, so expect to find some days you're able to access raids, another you might only be able to visit particular parts of the map, and so on.

As well as beta access, you'll can sign up to take part in stress tests that will be happening between now and release. So that means you may be able to play in the new servers briefly.
