With a surprisingly solid patch out the door this month, World of Warcraft no doubt wants to get as many eyeballs on its game to prove that it is starting to turn the Battle for Azeroth expansion cycle around. Its next major volley in this effort? A free welcome back weekend.
“New allies have entered the fight for Azeroth, and you’re needed on the frontlines,” Blizzard announced. “This weekend, we’re upgrading all inactive WoW accounts to allow you full access to the game and all of your characters without a subscription. You’ll also be able access the Battle for Azeroth trial experience, even if you do not own the expansion.”
The welcome back weekend is running from March 21st through the 24th, so that’s a good four days of free play if your subscription is in a coma right now. The WoW team is going to sit down for another dev chat this Thursday in hopes of keeping the current trend of goodwill going.
