After more than eight weeks of being offline, China will allow the worlds most popular online game World of Warcraft to return for "some" players around the country. China will restart the popular online game on July 30, but only previously registered players will be allowed to play.

World of Warcraft initially went offline while Blizzard Entertainment, the game's creator, switched local operators to Chinese Internet company NetEase.
