World of Warcraft won't raise free-to-play above level 20

World of Warcraft won't raise F2P above level 20
If you're holding your breath in hopes that Blizzard will relent and open up World of Warcraft's free trial to the post-level 20 experience, please, please take another breath. You'll die otherwise. The studio confirmed that it has no plans to expand its free-to-play offering past the initial 20 levels.

Producer John Lagrave said in an interview with CVG that the studio is content with the way things are. "[The free trial gives] a good sense of what our game is," he said. "You know, we looked at it lots, we looked at whether level 20 would give you a good sense of what our game is, and we think it does. There's also a lot of things in the game that are special that we want to reserve for our paying customers."

Lagrave pointed out that Blizzard has been beefing up the trial experience by including additional features that were previously reserved for subscribers only.
