The studio has begun sending out email invitations to opt-in beta testers and will continue to do so over the course of the test.
Participants will need to download the beta client directly from the Battle.net desktop app and Blizzard said they should be aware of phishing attempts.
Players who have doubts about the legitimacy of an invitation should log in to their Battle.net account to check there’s a Burning Crusade Classic beta license attached.
Further details on getting set up to take part can be found here.
Announced at BlizzCon online in February, the recreation of World of Warcraft’s first expansion will see players “return to Outland as it once was to relive an era of timeless adventure—or experience what awaits beyond the Dark Portal for the first time”.
Originally released in January 2007, “Burning Crusade summoned the heroes of Azeroth to the shattered and fel-scarred realm of Outland to stop an invasion of the demonic Burning Legion”.
As with World of Warcraft Classic, Burning Crusade Classic will be included with existing WoW subscriptions.
WoW Classic players will be able to choose whether to advance their characters to the Burning Crusade era with the rest of their realm or continue playing WoW Classic on new Classic Era servers.
Burning Crusade Classic was announced alongside World of Warcraft: Shadowlands’ first major content update, Chains of Domination.
