Yesterday Kaivax, a Community Manager for Blizzard, posted that they have been planning all along to have Oceanic realms available for WoW Classic. This confirmation is good news for players in New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia.
We agree with the many WoW Classic enthusiasts in Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia that it will be a very good thing for players in that part of the world to connect to realms that are hosted in that part of the world.
Planned it all along!
We will have Oceanic realms for WoW Classic, with game servers hosted in Australia, at launch on August 27, and we’ll let you know the names of the Oceanic realms before name reservations start on August 13.
