World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic to Launch on June 1

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic is set to launch on June 1, with a “Pre-expansion Patch” to roll out from May 18 after each regional scheduled maintenance. It will launch on June 2, 6AM in Malaysian time (based on the listed launch time for Taiwan).

As Blizzard explains in a press release, the release of the Pre-expansion Patch means that players will have to choose between moving onto Burning Crusade, moving to a Classic Era realm, or playing in both games using Character Clone. The Character Clone feature notably costs a steep US$35 (~RM144) per character.

Also available from May 18 are the US$39.99 (~RM164.44) Dark Portal Pass and US$69.99 (~RM289) Deluxe Edition. The former allows players to boost one character on a Burning Crusade Classic realm to level 58, with the boost being restricted to one character per WoW account and non blood elf and draenei characters. Meanwhile, the latter includes extra content like the Burning Crusade Classic-only Reawakened Phase-Hunter mount, Dark Portal Hearthstone and The Path of Illidan toy, the Viridian Phase-Hunter mount variant for “modern” WoW, 30 days of WoW game time, and the aforementioned Dark Portal Pass.

Burning Crusade Classic was first announced in February, and is the recreation of the 2007 expansion for WoW. Like WoW Classic, it will be added to players’ subscriptions without additional cost.
