World of Warcraft (WoW) fanatics are getting a treat ahead of this weekend’s BlizzCon as Blizzard secrets leaked ahead of the game-announceme­nt event.

The warmonger’s delight will be in the form of the latest WoW Shadowland­s expansion and a WoW Classic server option.

According to Ars Technica, Blizzard has finally given in to fan pressure to update the title.

“In the latter case, 2007’s hugely popular WoW expansion pack, The Burning Crusade, will be bolted onto the WoW Classic option inside the Blizzard Launcher starting sometime in 2021,” AT said.

“The news comes from an apparent leak of official BlizzCon press release materials, all formatted with official images and descriptio­ns of what’s to come, as found on Blizzard’s official servers by users at Reddit’s WoW community,” added the tech website in its report.

Similar to the 2019 launch of the official WoW vanilla edition, the Burning Crusade will be refreshed without any special features not already found on the original.

“Content from the original game will roll out in phases, at a cadence paced for the WoW Classic community. Prepare for the opening of the Black Temple, gear up to confront the gods of Zul’Aman, and gather your allies to face the fury of the Sunwell,” read the leaked Blizzard press release.

“If you want to keep things vanilla, you’ll have the option to hold your WoW Classic characters back to remain in a world that doesn’t know the kiss of the Outland,” Ars said.
