World of Warcraft is Now Free to Play to Level 20
Blizzard has made its ultra popular virtualcrack game World of Warcraft free to play up until level 20. Free players can access the entire game and all quests of paying players, but there are a few limitations with the free World of Warcrack, notably:
- Free players can not join guilds
- Free players can not accumulate more than 10 gold coins (probably an anti-farmer move)
- Free characters max out at level 20, gameplay continues but experience points stop accruing
Over 11 million people play World of Warcraft on a regular basis, so you’ll be in good company if you get addicted to the never-ending MMORPG.
Blizzard has always offered free trials, but previously you would only get 14 days to test the game before being told you had to buy it. Now you can play endlessly if you don’t mind your character maxing out at level 20, and at any point you can purchase a paid subscription to carry the character and your addiction further.
World of Warcraft runs on both Windows and Mac OS X and has fairly low system requirements, just about any Mac from the last 5 years should play it fine. Kiss your social life goodbye! If you do get sucked in, you can get a slight discount by buying pre-paid cards from Amazon.
If MMORPG’s aren’t your thing but you want another great free multiplayer game, don’t miss downloading Team Fortress 2, it’s a really fun fast paced first-person shooter that was recently made free as well.
