Many longtime Warcraft players have started with the unforgettable first version of the game. but yet a large mass has approached World of Warcraft with the second expansion, one of the most popular ever: The Burning Crusade. Just as two years ago Blizzard announced the return of the Classic version, last weekend at BlizzcOnline the Irvine company announced the return to the Dark Portal, with the version of TBC totally restored and restored to its former glory.
From Shattrath City to Tempest Keep, from Lady Vashjy to Maghteridon, the kingdom of Outland is ready to return to allow all nostalgics to relive the same experiences as when the expansion of The Burning Crusade was released. Later in the year, World of Warcraft players will return to the vile crevice of the Hellfire Peninsula to stop the invasion at the source, rediscover what lurks in the fungal forests of Zangarmarsh and will face Illidan the Betrayer again in the Black Temple.
“The World of Warcraft community has made it clear how much they wanted WoW Classic, and now they can’t wait to continue the journey with The Burning Crusade. Since the launch of WoW Classic and the release of content updates, we’ve learned a lot about what players want from this experience in 2021. We are working to make sure players’ journeys to Outland are as epic as ever. that they cross the Dark Portal again, whether they see it for the first time. “, he has declared J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.
With the launch and in the course of subsequent content updates, the re-release will re-create all the original 2007 features, including the entire Outland realm, the two “new” playable races: the Blood Elves for the Horde, who brings the Paladin class with them, and the Draenei for the Alliance, the faction’s first shamans. In addition to new options for heroes: Jewelcrafting is coming, as well as the Aldor and Scryer factions in Shattrath with unique rewards.
What if I want to continue on Classic? No problem. Before entering the Dark Portal, players will need to make a choice for each of their existing WoW Classic characters: progress into the era of Burning Crusade with the other heroes of the Horde and Alliance on their own realm or continue the adventure on the original WoW Classic content in the new “Era Classic” realms, coming with the release of Burning Crusade Classic. Players who want to experience the best of both worlds will be able to “clone” each WoW Classic character with an optional paid service, whereby any hero can venture into Burning Crusade Classic while his copy can continue the original adventure on a “Era Classic” realm.
To players who don’t have any characters ready to go through the Dark Portal and want to venture into Outland with their friends, Blizzard will also offer an instant boost option to level 58 shortly before the expansion’s release date. To preserve the integrity of player feats in WoW Classic, this upgrade will not be available to use on the Era Classic realms or the new Blood Elf and Draenei races. Additionally, players will only be able to upgrade one character per World of Warcraft account.
As with WoW Classic, access to Burning Crusade Classic will be included with existing subscriptions of players to World of Warcraft, at no additional cost. Blizzard Entertainment will be kicking off a beta test phase of Burning Crusade Classic shortly, asking players to provide feedback on the gameplay experience and help ensure the expansion strikes the best possible balance of authenticity and fun.
