World of Warcraft® Classic BlizzCon® Demo
Every BlizzCon, we look for opportunities to bring new aspects of the experience to our community around the world. This year, we’re excited to announce that for the first time ever, BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will join BlizzCon attendees as the first people to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo we’re creating for BlizzCon at home.

Shortly after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (on or around 1pm PDT), players will be able to download the same in-development BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo that will be playable on the show floor. Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand our recreation of the original Azeroth.

Once the demo is live, you’ll be able to play until 10am PST on November 8, giving BlizzCon attendees a chance to check it out again once they get back home.

Declare Your Allegiance With BlizzCon In-Game Loot
In addition to access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo, starting today BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders will receive commemorative in-game items that will help them proudly display their Horde or Alliance pride as the Battle for Azeroth rages on:

  • War Mantle of the Alliance & War Mantle of the Horde: Show all of Azeroth where your allegiance lies with a pair of faction-themed cosmetic cloaks—one for Horde characters, and one for Alliance.
  • Stormwind Champion’s War Banner & Orgrimmar Hero’s War Banner: Strike fear into your enemies and stand your ground when you plant your faction’s banner on the battlefield.

In addition to this year’s WoW items and access to the BlizzCon WoW Classic demo, the Virtual Ticket provides plenty of great BlizzCon content for your viewing pleasure along with additional in-game goodies from Overwatch®, Diablo® III, Hearthstone®, Heroes of the Storm®, and StarCraft® II.

    I'm somewhat of the same mind as you. While I plan to check it out at launch, I'm not exactly counting down the days until WoW classic and the cloak would have to be like... highest-detailed cloak model ever in WoW for me to even consider it. If its just another flat sheet of polys with some alpha-channel transparencies, I'll pass.

    This is amazing news. They seem to be much farther along with Classic than I thought they were.

    Ya classic will be fun to mess around with at launch but a demo really isn’t needed. The cap is just trash unless it’s a high quaility 3D one which I really doubt it will be.

    I think the Alliance cloak looks far worse with the leather tassels at the end.

    Yeah looks like there's no real reason for me to buy the virtual ticket this year. Oh well.

    That is my thought as well, Classic will be a "I got nothing Better to do, lets knock out 1 or 2 levels" it will never be a priority and knowing my time limits nowadays i may never have a toon at 60. I always buy the VT but never for the rewards i just enjoy watching everything as it happens.

    Did they start selling the ticket before saying that there would be no mount???

    The cloak would need to be something really high level, high definition, MoP legendary cloak style effects to be worth a mount...

    Horrible cloaks. Nothing unique, no thanks.

    In-game items definitely not worth it. Hard pass.
