World of Warcraft Classic Available With BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket

Blizzard Entertainment has a demo of its planned classic revival all ready for Blizzcon.

Though it seemed like World of Warcraft Classic might be a far off project, Blizzard Entertainment already has a demo almost ready to go. Today, the company announced that the demo for its planned revival of World of Warcraft's launch state will be available at BlizzCon 2018. Attendees of the show will have a chance to play through some early-level zones.

It's all coming back to me now...

Even better, those who purchase the BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket, which allows you to enjoy many of the show's panels from the comfort of your own home, will also be able to play the demo. The showfloor experience will be downloadable after the event's opening ceremonies on November 2.

"Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand our recreation of the original Azeroth," said Blizzard in its announcement.

The demo will only be available for a limited time. You'll be able to play until 10am PST on November 8. Either way, this should give players hope that World of Warcraft Classic is sooner rather than later. Blizzard Entertainment has a lot of code conversion and bug testing to do, and the demo is likely a big step.

World of Warcraft Classic does not have a release window yet.
