World of Warcraft patch 4.3.3 64-bit client

Blizzard has released new 64-bit clients for patch 4.3.3 today. Keep in mind that you need to remove the previous 64-bit client files before patching. After that's done, you can install these files:

Windows patch 4.3.3 64-bit client download link
Mac patch 4.3.3 64-bit client download link

As a reminder, the 64-bit client is also considered a beta product, even though you can use it on the live realms. But with that said, most people experience only good things and no real problems with the 64-bit version of WoW. But if you do run into problems, be sure to let Blizzard know about them.

If you have no idea what any of this means, take a look at our brief explainer of the difference between 32- and 64-bit game clients.

A 64-bit client is once again available for use with Patch 4.3.2. Before being able to launch WoW in 64-bit mode you will need to download the 64-bit client for PC/Mac (using one of the links below), and unzip it into your World of Warcraft directory. Once you extract the files you can start the 64-bit client by opening the Launcher as normal (Run as Administrator if applicable). To switch back to the 32-bit client, go into Options -> Game Preferences, and check the Launch 32-bit client setting. The game will display which version you are using at the bottom left hand corner of the login screen. ex: Version 4.3.3 (15354) (Release x64)

Build 4.3.3.15354 - Windows - Mac
