Blizzard has finally announced the arrival of its old and retaining title, The Burning Crusade. An exciting journey is upon your way, warrior, as you will be able to relive or set a foothold onto the new territory on the other side of the Dark Portal, Outland. World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic releases on the 1st of June, with different launch times across multiple regions.
According to the recent bluepost published by Blizzard, players will be able to choose between remaining on the Classic realms or moving to the new Burning Crusade realms, thus joining the new-old expansion. Fans worldwide will receive a chance to satisfy their nostalgic needs, while newcomers may also set a foothold in the most popular and slightly enhanced MMORPG in the world.
Below you can find more details about The Burning Crusade, such as Launch Times and more.

The official Blizzard bluepost can be found below:
Beyond the Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands lies a realm shattered by the machinations of the Burning Legion: Outland, the once beautiful orc homeworld of Draenor. Seek out its mysteries beginning June 1 when Burning Crusade Classic™ launches around the world.
Before that, however, every hero must make a choice. Beginning on May 18, after each regional scheduled maintenance, the Burning Crusade Classic Pre-expansion Patch will be released, and each character must choose whether to advance onward to Burning Crusade, move to a Classic Era realm, or use the Character Clone service to play in both games. Read more about this process.
Heroes who choose to cross the Dark Portal will find themselves in Hellfire Peninsula, an aptly named barren wasteland, where fel orcs and cruel demons roam free. The established outposts of Thrallmar (for the Horde) and Honor Hold (for the Alliance) are not able to deter this endless tide of darkness on their own. It is up to you to fight for this shattered world to rid it from evil. . . or watch its demonic denizens consume everything you hold dear.
Join the Global Launch
World of Warcraft®: Burning Crusade Classic will launch in the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, Korea, and Australia/New Zealand at the same time. Wherever you live and whatever path you choose to take, you can be part of one global adventure beyond the Dark Portal.
