World of Warcraft Classic goes to Wrath of the Lich King

GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

Blizzard today announced that Wrath of the Lich King Classic will be released later this year.

World of Warcraft Classic launched in 2019 and gave players a way to play the MMO closer to its original state. Burning Crusade Classic followed in 2021.

Wrath of the Lich King was first launched in 2008. It remains one of WoW’s most beloved expansions. It added the Death Knight class, allowed players to explore the frozen continent of Northrend, and tied in on the story that began with Warcraft III.

This time you don’t need a high level character to make a Death Knight. And while the dungeon locator tool first debuted towards the end of WotLK, Classic won’t use the feature. It also has more customizable options and doesn’t charge for changing your character’s cosmetics.
