World of Warcraft Extends Their Trial Period For All New Players

Though it’s severely hard to believe, there are actually a lot of people out in the world who have yet to experience the great world of Azeroth in Blizzard’s World of Warcraft MMO. To all of those tenacious citizens, we apologize, for your time without the game is over. With the game’s most recent update to patch 4.2, “Rage of the Firelands,” the initial free trial period for the game has been extended, allowing you to sink that much deeper into the game.

Originally, players would have 14 days to play to their heart’s content, and that was it. However, in the extended period, players can take all the time they want and grind for weeks, but their level will cap at 20. It shall remain this way until they purchase the full version of the game.

This is actually quite cool, as well as a clever move by Blizzard. The new extension even has its own name – the “World of Warcraft Starter Edition.” This new edition even includes some features that show in the game’s first expansion, The Burning Crusade. For example, players can now choose to make a Draenai or Blood Elf character, which are each races only introduced in the game’s first expansion. If you decide to upgrade, you can get the core game for $19.99 as a part of the World of Warcraft Battle Chest, which happens to include the first expansion. Way to go Blizzard, now keep taking our money!
