World of Warcraft turns 15 this year, and Blizzard is celebrating in a few different ways. One of those is the launch of World of Warcraft Classic, coming this summer, for those who want to experience WoW in its original flavour. But for fans of the popular MMORPG as a whole, the company is also releasing an anniversary Collector’s Edition filled with goodies.
The CE launches on October 8th. The bonus items include a pair of special mounts, fine art prints, a mouse pad with a map of Azeroth, and an Onyxia pin. The centerpiece of the collection is a large black-and-gold colored statue of Ragnaros.
Meanwhile, Blizzard also announced that WoW Classic will launch on August 27. You may actually get a chance to try it before then, though, as a closed beta is set to begin on May 15. It will also be running a series of stress tests through July. You can sign up to participate through the official site. If you’re already a WoW subscriber, you’ll get access to Classic as well.
Classic rewinds the clock to World of Warcraft as it existed as of the 1.12 update. It also includes some under-the-hood modern conveniences like Battle.net social features and modern server infrastructure.
