World of Warcraft Free to Play (Up to level 20)

I’ve always believed that a 10 day free trial of an MMORPG is never enough. Most of the time, a game like World of Warcraft can take anywhere from 12-24 hours to download and update before being able to actually play the game. Once in game, the first 5-10 levels are mainly there to introduce you to the game mechanics and if you aren’t an avid gamer and spend at least 2 hours a day, every day, until your trial is up you may not get very far.

Blizzard is reaching out to these new players and making the hours spent downloading the entire game for a free trial worth every minute. New players will be able to play for free, up to level 20, at their own pace (even if it takes an entire month). When you reach level 20, you can still play but you wont gain any more experience. There are other limitations too, trial members will be limited to 100 gold, skills are capped at 100, and auctions/guilds are disabled.
