Content wise, World of Warcraft Classic will feature periodically rolled out patches that will arrive in the same original order of 2004.

That said, even if you don't make it early on in the beta, Blizzard notes that there will be a series of stress tests throughout the summer, with increasing numbers of players being invited to participate. A year later, Blizzard then revealed that they'll release their own version of WoW Classic, which seems to be what the fans want, as many private servers offered a rollback vanilla experience throwback. That decision followed years of fans doing the same "behind" Blizzard's back, though their attempt to do so was an open secret-one that Blizzard battledaggressively. Players who opt-in for the testing on their account manager page and have an active subscription will be randomly selected for the beta starting on May 15. Interested players can sign up on the WoW website for a chance to be included. And the good news is that subsequent stress tests will extend the opportunity to even more players.

If you're already a WoW subscriber, you get access to Classic as well at no extra cost.

After announcing the official throwback servers at BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard have given the long-awaited World of Warcraft: Classic a worldwide release date of Tuesday August 27, 2019 - just in time for the game's 15th anniversary.

For a select few, the closed beta of WoW Classic will start tomorrow (16th May AEST). Blizzard will be celebrating their 15th anniversary by allowing for 25-player raids that will pit players against some of the most iconic bosses in the franchise. Players who make it through this epic trial will earn the Obsidian Worldbreaker mount, created to evoke the bad visage of the ancient Dragon Aspect Deathwing the Destroyer. It includes a Onyxia pin, map of Azeroth mouse pad, art prints, special anniversary mounts, and a large black-and-gold statue of Ragnaros the Firelord.
