World of Warcraft Classic will be reopening the Dark Portal with the old-school expansion coming to the next-gen remaster. World of Warcraft Classic: Burning Crusade will release in 2021.
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade first released in January 2007, where a new and ominous dark frontier awaited adventurers. This remaster of the DLC for WoW Classic returns players to the lost era of Zeroth to enjoy timeless stories that defined the universe.
The expansion includes two new races, Blood Elves and Draenei, which will enter the World of Warcraft in a pre-expansion patch. Delivery of the Burning Crusade content will happen in a few phases. First, the Karazhan Gruul’s Lair and Magtheridon’s Lair will release, followed by Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep. Later on, Blizzard will release Hyjal and Black Temple, Zul’Aman, and Sunwell Plateau. This might seem awfully odd to newer players, although this is similar to how content was delivered back in the late 2000s.
An important decision will face players of World of Warcraft Classic. When the new Burning Crusade DLC drops, adventurers will need to decide whether they move their characters to a Burning Crusade server or remain in a Vanilla Classic server… forever.
Veterans and newbies alike who want to get into the Outlands as quickly as possible can sign up for the Burning Crusade Classic Beta on the World of Warcraft Classic website.
