Our global pre-launch test of WoW Classic will begin on Thursday, August 8 at 11:00 a.m. PDT and is scheduled to end on Friday, August 9. This test will be available to all World of Warcraft players with a current subscription or active game time in all regions. The maximum character level will be 15.We ask that players please log-in and play as much as possible during the first two hours of the test – 11:00 a.m. PDT to 1:00 p.m. PDT, as that is when we’ll be actively monitoring for issues important to launch.
WoW Classic is now ready for all players to install from the Blizzard Battle.net
Desktop App in advance of the test. To install WoW Classic:
- Open the Blizzard Battle.net Desktop App and select World of Warcraft in the game selection menu on the left.
