In a new forum post, Blizzard Community Manager, Kaivax, announced that global pre-launch testing of WoW Classic will begin on Thursday, August 8 at 11am PDT.

Kaivax requests players to log in and play from 11am - 1pm PDT since that’s when they’ll be monitoring issues important to launch.

Here’s how to install WoW Classic:

  1. Open the Blizzard Battle.net 298 Desktop App and select World of Warcraft in the game selection menu on the left.
  2. Under the Version dropdown menu, select World of Warcraft Classic. If you have more than one World of Warcraft account, you’ll see a second dropdown for Account. In that column, select the active account to associate with your WoW Classic install.
  3. Click the Install button. You’ll see an installation progress bar that will show you when the installation is complete.
