World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic has been announced by Blizzard after yesterday’s leak.
World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic content will be rolled out in phases this year.
Originally released in January 2007, The Burning Crusade takes players to the Outland to stop the Burning Legion. This year, Blizzard’s recreation of the first World of Warcraft expansion will take you back to the Outland where reavers roam Hellfire Peninsula.
You will also traverse the swamps of Zangarmarsh and clash with the Burning Legion in the Black Temple.
This expansion brought with it the Blood Elf for the Horde, and Draenei for the Alliance, so you will soon be able to roll these races again in Classic.
If you are just jumping into WoW, Burning Crusade also brought with it the Arena PvP system, the Jewelcrafting profession, flying mounts, and the Aldor and Scryers of Shattrath.
Prior to Burning Crusade Classic’s release, WoW Classic players can decide whether to advance each of their characters to the Burning Crusade era with the rest of their realm or to continue playing the original WoW Classic content on the new Classic Era servers.
As with WoW Classic, anyone who subscribes to World of Warcraft can also play Burning Crusade Classic at no additional cost.
