World of Warcraft Beta Begins
8:16 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Blizzard has announced their beta test period for the upcoming massively multiplayer online RPG World of Warcraft is underway. Many lucky testers have started making their downloads, which amount to a whoppping 2GB, by reader reports.

The official World of Warcraft Community site has help for those beta testers just getting started, such as forums and basic instructions. Here's more about the current status of the world of Azeroth:

To those joining us for the first time, we are currently in the middle of our All Alliance push. This means that you may play any of the Alliance races (i.e. Human, Dwarf, Gnome and Night Elf) and can choose one of the following six classes: Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Warlock & Warrior (as each race allows). More races and classes will become available in the next few weeks.
If you weren't one of the lucky few initial testers, don't despair. Blizzard has noted they will be expanding the beta once the game gets closer to release. For more info on the game now, be sure to have a read through the title's site and stay tuned for the latest from IMG.
