players were shocked and confused to learn that they had a free copy of World of Warcraft Classic
(it's the new "official" vanilla) sitting in their inbox starting last week. In a push for more subscribers before the big patch 4.2
push, tons of free copies of the game were distributed out to veterans to give to friends to introduce them to World of Warcraft
. Not only is the game free, but these veteran reward accounts come with 30 day subscriptions for your buddies.
Nethaera commented on the veteran emails being sent out -- they are not scams and are being sent to players who selected to receive news and offers from Blizzard. If you haven't gotten an veteran rewards email, check your spam folder or contact Blizzard support. I postulated on a recent Lawbringer
what the world would look like with free WoW
, and this seems like a good first step to getting more WoW
into more hands.
WoW Veteran Reward free copies
The veteran award email and offer are legitimate and are being sent out to veterans who have previously opted in to receiving news and special offers from Blizzard Entertainment. We may run more of these types of promotions in the future, so if this is something you are interested in, we suggest opting in as soon as possible so you don't miss out.
The news is already rolling out for the upcoming WoW Patch 4.2! Preview the new Firelands raid, marvel at the new legendary staff, and get the inside scoop on new quest hubs -- plus new Tier 12 armor!
