World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is now available at a store near you! You can read the full press release here. Featuring a massive new world, two new races, several new instanced dungeons, and hundreds of unique new quests, The Burning Crusade provides countless hours of exciting solo and group content. And if you want to go toe-to-toe with human opponents, the expansion's Arena PvP System and the redesigned PvP Honor System will provide the thrills and excitement you seek. There are both a standard and a collector's edition available for The Burning Crusade; you can learn more about the latter in our detailed Burning Crusade Collector's Edition Preview. If you want to learn more about the expansion and all its features, we suggest you check out the Burning Crusade Features Page and also take a look at the Burning Crusade Expansion FAQ.
During installation of the expansion, you'll be able to upgrade your World of Warcraft account access to The Burning Crusade. Alternatively, you can click here to upgrade as well.
A generation has passed since the Dark Portal opened for the first time, unleashing the Orcish Horde upon Azeroth. The wars that followed changed the face of the world forever. Now, the portal between the worlds has been reopened, and the people of Azeroth find themselves in the direct path of the Burning Legion once more. To save the world from destruction, you must do what only few have ever done before: cross through the Dark Portal into the shattered realm of Outland. Prepare for the greatest challenge yet -- the fate of not just one world, but of two, now rests in the hands of mortal heroes.
Beyond the Swamp of Sorrows, deep within the Blasted Lands, the Dark Portal beckons -- and destiny awaits...
Known Expansion Support Issues
In order to play the Burning Crusade Expansion, players will need to install from their game CDs and upgrade their accounts. Those that have only upgraded their accounts will not be able to access the new content until they install the Burning Crusade client software.
For those that wish to play their account on more than one system, the Burning Crusade client software must also be installed on the additional systems in order to access the new content. Once the Burning Crusade is installed on a computer, it can be used to play both original and expansion accounts.
We will be offering a direct download of the Burning Crusade expansion at a future date in time. Please keep an eye on the main website for more details.
Throughout the questing and overall leveling process, instances in the Burning Crusade were also designed to be a much more integral part of the game for both leveling and gear. The group experience bonus allows a player to still make good progress towards the next level while playing through group content with friends and finding new challenges and boss fights along the way. The quests for every zone eventually start to poke and prod you towards the next level appropriate instance to help players make this decision and help round out the leveling experience. To make the process of instancing even better, Blizzard has grouped the instances in each zone together as "wings" of increasing difficulty within a larger structure that has an overall theme.
