World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth official artwork and logo

If you're like me and you play World of Warcraft in short bursts, you might be glad to hear that it's currently having a free weekend. From now until June 25th, all currently inactive accounts are being given full access to the game without requiring a subscription or any sort of payment. So if you're up for revisiting your characters ahead of the Battle for Azeroth expansion, now would be the time to do so!

On the other hand, if you're a brand new player and you're wondering whether this promotion extends to you as well, you might want to check out the free Starter Edition. You'll only be able to reach level 20, but you'll be able to play with all of the races and classes, so as far as "try it before you buy it" is considered, I'd say the Starter Edition is a pretty darn good deal. You can find out more over at the official website.

If you have already completed all of the current content and are now waiting on the Battle for Azeroth expansion, you might also want to sign up for the Closed Beta. There is no guarantee you'll get a key any time soon, but the whole process is fairly simple so I'd definitely recommend you sign up.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with Battle for Azeorth's cinematic, just for good measure!
