WoW Classic Burning Crusade Release Date & More Confirmed

by in General | May, 7th 2021

WoW Classic’s Burning Crusade expansion has a release date, and it’s getting a very short pre-patch. A leak was recently dropped online that it was going live on June 1st, and that turned out to be true. The Pre-Patch will begin on May 18th, 2021, and it’s going to make players choose what to do on each of their characters. WoW Shadowlands hasn’t exactly been a hit with many. That includes this writer, who actively played World of Warcraft for years, even when it stopped being enjoyable. There are players who are falling in love again thanks to WoW Classic and Burning Crusade; what else is there beyond the release date though?

Choose Your Own Adventure

On May 18th, the release of the pre-patch for WoW Classic Burning Crusade begins. This is a maintenance session, and when it’s over, players will have to make a choice. Each of your characters will have to decide on if they want to move on to the Burning Crusade content, stay with the Classic Era content, or make a clone of that character to play in both.

Some people are excited that there’s not a long time to wait, but that doesn’t go for everyone. Esfand of OTK had this to say:

The downside is that you get one free clone. The others will require a paid service to have your character in both Vanilla/BC. The price point is unknown at this time. This leads me to another problem. The short pre-patch means people who are just coming to Burning Crusade are going to have to grind really fast to get to the level cap and get ready. You can’t just leap into Outland at level 30, for example. For people who aren’t level capped yet, it’s a very small period of time to get ready for the expansion. So it’s not the worst thing, players sound like they were hoping it would come with a bit more warning. It all begins with the June 1st release date in WoW Classic: Burning Crusade.
