After the classic phrase "You think you do, but you don't," and the absolutely astonishing avalanche of arguments that followed it, Blizzard finally announced back in November of 2017 that they are officially working on World of Warcraft: Classic. While the details are still few and far between, what I can tell you is that the new-old World of Warcraft will feature all of the same sensibilities, strengths and flaws of the original.

If you're like me and you're wondering what exactly Blizzard means by this, you might be interested to hear that a World of Warcraft: Classic demo will be included alongside the BlizzCon ticket, both physical and virtual. While certainly exciting, it is important to mention that this will cost you a fair bit of money as even the Virtual Ticket is a rather hefty €40!

Besides the price itself, there is one more limit imposed on the World of Warcraft: Classic demo, and that limit is time. Right after the opening ceremony on November 2nd (around 1pm PDT) the Classic demo will become available to all Virtual Ticket-holders and BlizzCon attendees, and it will only remain active until 10am PST on November 8th. While it does feel a bit tight, six days should still be plenty of time to see what Blizzard has managed to accomplish with World of Warcraft: Classic, as well as how the oldschool gameplay holds up in today's gaming world.

Once more information is released, most likely on the day of BlizzCon itself, I'll make sure to you know. Until then, I would recommend you go and scour the official website as it has some nice tidbits about the team's progress on World of Warcraft: Classic and its various features. Enjoy!
