World of Warcraft Classic beta testers, do you think, after your 17000+ bug reports, that the game is ready to finish up its fixes and move into its next phase? Blizzard does. In today’s beta update, the company says the current leg of closed beta will draw to a close on July 12th, when Blizz will swap over to shift its focus back to stress testing.
“Internally, we’re working through the aforementioned bug fixes, testing the high-level zones such as Eastern Plaguelands, and doing our raid testing,” the company writes. “We’ll make sure Ragnaros and Onyxia are ready to go. As for what’s next, the final stress test is now coming up on July 25-26 (we’ve changed this date since we first announced it). During that global test, we will roll out our multi-region hardware in preparation for the worldwide release of WoW Classic. In addition to getting many more testers to play through the initial leveling experiences, it will be a test of the fixes and tweaks that we’ve made and are making to the game.”
Blizz also notes that the closed beta will see a “small in-game event” on July 12th as a capstone for the test period.
