Burning Crusade Free, WoW Free to Play

The World of Warcraft Website has word that the Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft now comes bundled with the game for $19.99, and is also now available for free to all owners of Blizzard's MMORPG. Also, though this isn't reflected on the site, Blizzard sends word that the game's free trial is no longer time limited, it now allows players to play as much as they want, though they are capped at level 20 (apologies for erroneously saying level 30 at first). The forums say: "The restrictions should still all be in place. Trial accounts simply no longer expire." They say more details on this will be revealed soon. Word is:

Starting today, we’ve removed the previous 10- and 14-day trial time restrictions, and players who are interested in trying out World of Warcraft can now play the base game for free up to a maximum character level of 20, including draenei and blood elf characters – all they need is a account and an Internet connection. To mark the occasion, we’ve also given the trial a new name: World of Warcraft Starter Edition. Players who had previously signed up for 10- or 14-day trials will be able to hop back into the Starter Edition right where they left off.
