Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2011

If you haven’t been bit by the WOW bug yet, Blizzard is hoping to entice you by allowing you to play unrestricted up to level 20 before the game starts asking for money. At that point you can choose to ditch your character and all that hard work, or pay $20 for the full game along with the Burning Crusade expansion which ups your level cap to 70 and opens Outlands, and the Blood Elf and Draenei races.

Also, the Burning Crusade expansion is completely free to everyone who has the game and hasn’t already bought it. Seems like a good time to get into WOW.
