The WoW Classic Burning Crusade Closed Beta Has Begun

Mar 23, 2021

We’ve recently begun testing WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade in a closed beta environment. This means that some players now have access to the beta, by invitation only.

If you’d like to join us in testing WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade, all you need to do is opt-in to become a tester. Players who have opted-in can be selected to be a tester, and invitations will go out regularly throughout the test.

Once you’ve been added:

  • Open the Blizzard App and select World of Warcraft from your Games list.
  • In the selector above the Play button, change your Game Version to In Development: The Burning Crusade.
  • Click Install to install the Beta client. This becomes a Play button when ready.
  • Click Play to log in to the Beta, and select any of the available Test Servers.
  • Create a new test character, or copy over a character from your live WoW Classic account using the Copy Character button.
  • Enter the game and test the content!
