WoW Classic Demo: Der Preload im Battle.net ist gestartet


Die BlizzCon-Demo für World of Warcraft Classic könnt ihr nun über den Battle.net-Clienten herunterladen. Der Preload ist gestartet.

Im Laufe des Tages werden alle Besitzer des Virtuellen Tickets den Download der Demo für WoW Classic starten können. Das hat Blizzard nun in einem Bluepost angekündigt. Seit kurzem wissen wir, dass in der Demo das Brachland für die Horde und Westfall für die Allianz als spielbare Gebiete zur Verfügung stehen.

Die Dataminer von wowhead haben außerdem bereits weitere Dinge gefunden. Allen voran natürlich den klassischen Startbildschirm.

20 Server für die BlizzCon-Demo: Bei wowhead haben sie herausgefunden, dass es für die Classic-Demo 20 Server geben wird. Angekündigt wurde zuletzt eine zeitliche Beschränkung der Demo, sodass ihr nach einer Zeit ausgeloggt werdet und euch erneut in die Warteschlange einreihen müsst. Man darf gespannt sein wie lange gespielt werden darf. Offensichtlich rechnet Blizzard aber mit einigen Spielern der Demo.

Classic-Button in den Grafikoptionen: Die Grafikoptionen beinhalten einen Classic-Button, der alles so einstellt, dass ihr die Grafik von 2004 zu sehen bekommt. Andernfalls wurde wohl unter anderem das verbesserte Wasser, das wir seit Cataclysm haben, in Classic übernommen. Allgemein trägt der Client die Versionsnummer 1.13.

Die alten Tipps beim Ladebildschirm: MMO-Champion hat in den Daten sogar die alten Spieltipps gefunden, die euch im Ladebildschirm angezeigt wurden.
