World of Warcraft players will have access to every race, even if they've never bought an expansion for the MMO, when the 5.0.4 patch launches on 28 August.
World of Warcraft, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm players will even be able to try out the incoming Pandaren without purchasing Mists of Pandaria.
"With the release of patch 5.0.4, we’re making all the races of Azeroth playable by anyone, no matter which version or expansion of World of Warcraft they own," reads a WoW blog post.
"This includes the enigmatic pandaren, who will become available for play when Mists of Pandaria is released on Tuesday, September 25. We want the entire World of Warcraft community to be able to embrace their inner goblin, blood elf, worgen, draenei, or pandaren from the moment they step foot into the world of Azeroth."
Mists of Pandaria is set to launch on 25 September.
