Blizzard revealed some news which WoW fans will be all over. World of Warcraft Classic will have a playable demo for BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Holders. This is great for fans who can’t make it to BlizzCon but still want to get a piece of the action. Blizzard has not been too vocal on the status of WoW Classic’s progress, but it seems they are farther along with it than many think. This will give longtime fans the chance to experience the nostalgia of the original game once again. This MMO first debuted back in 2004 and has since dominated when it comes to those types of games.
“Every BlizzCon, we look for opportunities to bring new aspects of the experience to our community around the world. This year, we’re excited to announce that for the first time ever, BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will join BlizzCon attendees as the first people to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo we’re creating for BlizzCon at home.”
- Right after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (on or around 1 pm PDT), players will be able to download the same in-development BlizzCon World of Warcraft Classic Demo that will be playable on the show floor.
- Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand the original Azeroth.
- Once the demo is live, you’ll be able to play until 10 am PST on November 8, giving BlizzCon attendees a chance to check it out again once they get back home.
- BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive commemorative in-game items.
Exclusive in-game items:
- War Mantle of the Alliance & War Mantle of the Horde: Includes a pair of faction-themed cosmetic cloaks—one for Horde characters, and one for Alliance.
- Stormwind Champion’s War Banner & Orgrimmar Hero’s War Banner
