World of Warcraft: Classic gryphon rider artwork

After what feels like an eternity of waiting, World of Warcraft: Classic finally saw the light of day during this year's Blizzcon. However, due to the Blizzcon demo being a bit limited, players were only able to explore the Barrens and Westfall, with the rest of the world being entirely walled off.

So if you're like me and you're wondering when exactly you'll be unleashed upon the entire world, you might just be glad to hear that World of Warcraft: Classic will be arriving in the summer of 2019, though no exact date has been given just yet. Perhaps most importantly of all, WoW: Classic will be available as a part of the current WoW subscription!

This is probably the very best way Blizzard could've handled the whole situation. After all, if one version of WoW ever starts feeling a bit stale, you can just hop onto the other one and experience something completely different. Not only will this keep the WoW: Classic population high throughout the year, but it will also remove one of World of Warcraft's biggest problems - the months of nothingness between major patches. A true win-win situation.

Once Blizzard releases more information I'll make sure to let you know as I'm quite excited myself. Until then, however, I'll leave you with the iconic and original trailer for World of Warcraft. Enjoy!
