The drums of war thunder once again… Return to a lost era of Azeroth and experience the timeless stories that defined this world at war.
Progression raiding and large scale World Player versus Player will remain our focus.
World of Warcraft Classic is a faithful recreation of the original World of Warcraft—it runs a bit smoother on today’s computers, but the game still looks and feels like you’re playing World of Warcraft from 2006. Combat mechanics, original character models and skill trees all contribute to a truly authentic experience, as do your interactions with other players.
Your reliance on others to take on the world was at the heart of the original WoW and is at the heart of World of Warcraft Classic.
How do I Play World of Warcraft Classic?
