WoW Classic fans are already waiting for it: the Burning Crusade expansion is in the starting blocks and Blizzard has now announced an official release date.
Burning Crusade was the first expansion for World of Warcraft at the time and enjoyed great popularity. The revival for WoW Classic should now be available from June 2nd at midnight and send you back to Outland.
The preparation starts much earlier, because you can download the pre-expansion patch from May 18th. This allows you to create blood elves and draenei and level them diligently. You can also decide whether you want to play on a Classic-era realm without expansion, play Burning Crusade on the progression realms, or clone your character to play both variants.
It is precisely this character cloning that is causing annoyance at the moment, because at 35 US dollars it is damned expensive and the fans are not exactly thrilled about it. Blizzard has long been criticized for overpriced additional services and this will certainly not smooth things over.
In WoW: Burning Crusade you step through the Dark Portal and go to Outland, the remains of Draenor, the once beautiful homeworld of the orcs.
