What to expect from World of Warcraft Classic

The launch of WoW Classic will give players the chance to put together a 40-player raid where they can take on Molten Core and try to open the gates of Ahn’Qiraj, while also taking part in the PvP fight between Soutshore and Tarren Mill.

Players will be able to return to Azeroth and experience it as it was during the 1.12.1 patch update.

Content updates will continue to be released over several phases to reflect the game’s original patch release cycle.

Despite being filled with content from the original set-up of the game, it will be supported by a modern infrastructure that will ensure that the gaming experience is smooth and suitable for a modern PC.

Players are already able to put together up three characters ready for the release, which includes being able to reserve a name and choose which realm you want to play on.
