Eager to try out the Wrath of the Lich King in WoW Classic? You might be wondering how to sign up to the beta.

One of the most popular World of Warcraft expansions is set to return to WoW Classic later this year. Originally releasing back in 2008, Wrath of the Lich King was WoW's second expansion following Burning Crusade, selling 2.8 million copies within the first day.

While veteran WoW players might remember a large portion of content from its original drop, its return in WoW Classic will no doubt be a welcome sight for players new and old. Fans will see the return of the expansion's dungeons and raids, explore Northrend, and welcome back the Death Knight Hero Class.

While no exact release date for the expansion has been given just yet, players will have the chance to sign up to the Wrath of the Lich King beta. Here's what you need to know.

How to Sign Up for the WoW Classic Wrath of the Lich King Beta

Long-time WoW players will probably be familiar with Blizzard's process for beta sign ups, but some players might like a refresher.

First, head over to Blizzard's official WoW Classic webpage and sign in with your Blizzard account. You'll need to sign in with an account that has an active WoW subscription. Scroll down towards the bottom of the Wrath of the Lich King page and click the "Beta Opt-In" button on the page to register your interest in joining.

Sadly, clicking this button doesn't guarantee you a spot in the beta but it can't hurt to try. Players who have taken part in previous betas or have a long-term WoW account in good standing will likely have a better chance of success. 

Once you've completed these steps, you'll simply have to wait and see if you've reached selection.
