Blizzard said it would never happen, but it’s happening: World of Warcraft is getting legacy servers that emulate Azeroth as it existed back in 2006 called WoW classic.
Though the release is a few months away, many players have already been granted access to WoW Classic’s closed beta that is currently running. There’s a small chance you can get access to it by going to your beta profile settings found at the bottom of the “Games & Subscriptions” menu.

There are also several public stress tests that will be happening before the launch.
- : May 22 to May 23
- : June 19 to June 20
- : July 18 to July 19
Now, the third stress test is fairly different from the previous two. World of Warcraft Classic will be made available for download to all eligible players in the Americas and Oceania region.
Legends speak of a place off the coast of Kul Tiras whose denizens have replaced blood and bones with bolts and brass: Mechagon Island.

For the first time, it will be made available to anyone with an active World of Warcraft game account in the Americas & Oceania region. Previously, only one realm was made available. The servers were closed yesterday and brought back closed Beta for testing.
Community Manager Kaivax stated that,
All races and classes will be made available for creation, with the maximum character level capped at 15. The vast open world will be made available to all players at this time, with additional instances available at Warsong Gulch for PvP, as well as Ragefire Chasm, Wailing Caverns, and Deadmines.
The stress test will be made available on June 20 @8:00 AM EDT.

During this duration, Blizzard studios will look towards a huge response for the player base to Beta test their version. Blizzard hasn’t explicitly stated whether players will have to buy WoW Classic up front in order to play. But you won’t require a separate subscription to play it. Also, new updates and improvements are due from Blizzard Studios.
