Massively popular MMO World of Warcraft's trial version is no longer 10 or 14 days - the game is now completely free to play up until your character reaches level 20.

The new trial is called World of Warcraft Starter Edition and includes access to one of the expansion packs, The Burning Crusade.

If gamers want to continue playing after that, they'll have to subscribe.

Blizzard Entertainment made the announcement early this afternoon, and said players who had previously taken part in a World of Warcraft trial could jump back in to the starter edition and continue playing up until level 20.

The announcement was made along with information about the latest content update, patch 4.2. Blizzard said the content update features "a new raid, a legendary questline, all-new raid tier and PvP armor sets, the most diverse daily questing experience to date, major story developments, PvP Season 10, user interface enhancements" and more.
