The World of Warcraft Classic Demo playtime will initially be limited to a cumulative 60 minutes, Blizzard has announced.
Blizzard already stated that they might implement time limits to help as many people as possible play the Classic demo, and this initial time limit is now official. Players who play the demo for a straight 60 minutes will be disconnected from the Demo servers, and will have to wait for 30 minutes before being able to log on again.
“When the demo goes live, we’ll use a playtime time limit and a cooldown (that starts when you first log in) to help as many people as possible play the Classic demo as much as possible”, Blizzard wrote. “We’ll start with a playtime limit of a cumulative 60 minutes and a cooldown of 90 minutes.”
Down below we’ve included some examples of the cumulative time limits that Blizzard posted:
- If you play for 30 minutes and then log off for 60 minutes, when you come back you’ll have a fresh 60 minutes.
- If you play for 60 minutes, you’ll be disconnected and then have to wait 30 minutes before you can play again.
- If you play for 20 minutes, log off for 20 minutes, then play 40 more minutes, you’ll be logged off and wait 10 more minutes.
“Our goal is to lift session limits as quickly as we feasibly can after the demo goes live. We will then only reinstate session limits if unexpectedly high demand returns.”
