Burning Crusade Classic is a faithful recreation of the original release of World of Warcraft®: The Burning Crusade®. Enter the Twisting Nether and explore Outland—the shattered remains of the once beautiful orc homeworld, Draenor. Battle to level 70, ride majestic flying mounts, and master two additional races: the mystical blood elves and the pious draenei.

Black Temple Trailer

It’s been nearly 14 years since the release of the first WoW Expansion. Last year I’ve decided to visit The Burning Crusade content once more following up the huge success of Classic WoW. As per the promise I made at the end of the Naxxramas Trailer I’m happy to show you the journey to the Black Temple the way I remember it.

The trailer took 10 months to make and it’s been made entirely in Cinema 4D (meaning no ingame footage has been used). It’s development has been made possible due to the extensive use of the Marlamin’s Export Tools and Jeromnimo’s WoW Model Viewer.

The Burning Crusade Classic Pre-Expansion Update Is Here!

The time is nearly at hand to step beyond the Dark Portal and into the shattered realm of Outland. Make your choice to fight for the Horde as a blood elf or join the Alliance as a draenei. The Burning Crusade Classic pre-expansion update is now live!

With the release of the pre-expansion patch, players will make a choice between continuing to play on WoW Classic or progressing into Burning Crusade Classic. Learn more details on what you can expect with the release of the pre-expansion patch for Burning Crusade Classic and launch Era realms.
