WoW Classic PTR Update – Burning Crusade and Classic Era Info

WoW Classic PTR Update – Burning Crusade and Classic Era Info
World of Warcraft Classic PTR has been updated with info about Burning Crusade and Classic Era.

Among many new strings for ray tracing and gamepad settings (which don’t actually seem to be used right now), there is also a string “BURNING_CRUSADE_TRANSITION_DEFAULT_CLONE_DATE” that is set to “May 18, 2021”. This could be a placeholder date for when character snapshotting might take place.

Coming Soon: Burning Crusade

Classic will soon be split into separate games: Burning Crusade and Classic Era.

When that happens, you’ll choose which game your character will play on going forward.

If you wish to clone your character and play in both versions, that service will be available for a fee.
