In response to player input, Cataclysm Classic will implement a number of tweaks and upgrades, including accelerated leveling, increased dungeon difficulty, and more extensive loot troves. When and when will you be able to play Cataclysm Classic, though? Details can be found below.
Cataclysm Classic Release Date and Time
The official announcement was made during BlizzCon 2023, and the release date for Cataclysm Classic is set for the first half of 2024. The specific day and hour have not been announced, although expansions are typically released by Blizzard on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 3 pm PT or 6 pm ET.

Cataclysm Classic will be available for all players who have an active World of Warcraft membership, which costs $14.99 per month.

Cataclysm Classic Features and Changes
Cataclysm Classic will reintroduce the original expansion’s features and content, such as:
Raised maximum level from 80 (Wrath of the Lich King Classic) to 85. Mount Hyjal, Vashj’ir, Deepholm, Uldum, and the Twilight Highlands are the five new regions available to adventurers.
Blackrock Caverns, Throne of the Tides, The Stonecore, The Vortex Pinnacle, Lost City of the Tol’vir, Halls of Origination, Grim Batol, The Bastion of Twilight, Blackwing Descent, Throne of the Four Winds, and Baradin Hold are only some of the new dungeons and raids added to the game.
Both the Alliance and the Horde now have access to two new playable races: the Worgen and the Goblins, respectively. A reworked talent system that lets players specialize their character’s powers in one of three paths as they progress through the game.
Archaeology, a new secondary profession, will let players earn rewards like pets, mounts, toys, and titles by unearthing ancient treasures and artifacts. Similar to Wintergrasp, the new PvP zone of Tol Barad pits players against one another for control of a key island while also offering raid content and daily missions.
A brand new ranked battleground system where players may form teams to compete for glory, conquest, and championships. A whole new guild system that includes a guild finder, a guild bank, and guild levels, among other features.
In addition, Cataclysm Classic will have player-requested enhancements and adjustments, such as:
Leveling has been sped up and simplified, and new content is being added at a more rapid clip. As a result, players will spend less time grinding and more time experiencing the game’s end-game content. Cataclysm Classic will include the Titan Rune dungeon system, which debuted in Wrath of the Lich King Classic and features additional runes and rewards.
With this mechanism, adventurers can tailor the dungeon’s difficulty and modifiers to their liking, resulting in increased rewards. The ability to acquire mounts, pets, toys, heirlooms, and transmogrification pieces, among other things, across your whole account. All of a player’s collection data, including its progress and completion, will be accessible to and usable by all of their characters.
Enhanced functionality for guilds, including a new guild chat system, calendar, news, and prizes. There will be less barriers between players and their guildmates in terms of talking, planning, and partying.
Changes to the auction house including a revamped user interface, improved search capabilities, and a more streamlined bidding process. Better and more streamlined purchasing and selling capabilities for players.
The events and features of the original Cataclysm expansion, which was launched in 2010 and altered the face of Azeroth, will be recreated in World of Warcraft Classic’s third expansion, aptly titled Cataclysm Classic.
In response to player input, Cataclysm Classic will implement a number of tweaks and upgrades, including accelerated leveling, increased dungeon difficulty, and more extensive loot troves. All players with a current World of Warcraft subscription will have access to Cataclysm Classic when it launches in the first half of 2024.
Optional bundles can be purchased for additional content or a level increase. In order to get ready for Cataclysm Classic, players can level up their characters, finish all of the tasks and accomplishments in Wrath of the Lich King Classic, save up some gold and currency, join or create a guild, and watch the trailer and sneak look.
Exciting and nostalgic, Cataclysm Classic will reintroduce the features and content from the original Cataclysm expansion while also making some adjustments and improvements in response to player feedback and requests.
