WoW Classic TBC has fans buzzing about the future of World of Warcraft by revisiting its past.

While we expect WoW Classic TBC will arrive in May, players can get an early taste of its gameplay thanks to the upcoming beta.

Here's what we know so far about the WoW Classic TBC beta - and how to sign up.

Latest - Beta Release Date Leak

One common denominator between many popular WoW Classic TBC leaks is that February would be when beta would launch.

This is certainly unconfirmed, and would be sooner than many might've expected.

Still, it would be a fantastic sign for the expansion to begin testing early to make improvements.

This is thanks to the newly announced WoW Classic TBC beta - which you can sign up for now!
