WoW Classic Files Indicate Wrath Of The Lich King Classic Could Be In The Works

The World of Warcraft Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic Season of Mastery is in full swing, but new files relating to the Wrath of the Lich King game expansion indicate that Blizzard will soon be adding another way for players to relive the glory days of the game.

As noted by MMO Champion, a recently released build of Burning Crusade Classic hosted on the game’s patch server hints that the Wrath of the Lich King Classic may be on the way. A new file folder called “Interface-Wrath” has been found in the game client, which includes changes specific to the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, such as support for a new Deathknight class on the character creation screen and blue interface buttons upon login. screen.

This means that players can begin their assault on Icecrown Citadel and take on Arthas sooner rather than later, but Burning Crusade Classic will likely need to reach the end of its content cycle before that happens. The Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raids were released in January, meaning that remaining updates like Gods of Zul’Aman and Fury of the Sunwell will be released later this year.

After that, Blizzard prompts players to upgrade to the “classic” version of Wrath of the Lich King, which makes sense. Wrath of the Lich King is one of the game’s most beloved expansions, and it was during the expansion in 2010, prior to the release of the Cataclysm expansion, that Blizzard’s MMORPG membership peaked at over 12 million.

Both WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic are currently included in the game’s subscription price, which also gives access to the current Shadowlands expansion. Adding yet another addition to this list, and perhaps the game’s most popular seems like a surefire way for Blizzard to bring in even more departed WoW players, as well as give players who played WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic more content.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many official plans for what’s next for Blizzard’s MMO at this time. With BlizzCon not taking place this year, details about future versions of WoW Classic or even a new game expansion have yet to be announced.
