World of Warcraft is getting their 2nd expansion pack this fall. Wrath of the Lich King will be readily available on November 13th, 2008!
Get ready to expand people. But before you say, “ahh, I guess I’ll get this expansion since I didn’t get ‘The Burning Crusade” think again. In order to play Lich King, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that you ALSO need to have WOW:BC installed first. I’ve played WoW for a month, couldn’t get into the game. But I do appreciate MMoRPG’s. For crying out loud, I used to play Star Wars Galaxies (before the major change).
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King sends players to the cold, forbidding continent of Northrend, where the fearsome Lich King Arthas Menethil, last seen in Warcraft® III: The Frozen Throne®, works from his secluded citadel to bring all of Azeroth under his twisted dominion. Players will battle the Lich King’s undead army from the shores of Howling Fjord and Borean Tundra to the seat of his unholy power in Icecrown Glacier. In addition, players will be able to advance characters to level 80 and gain powerful new abilities while exploring several new zones and dungeons. The expansion also introduces a number of exciting new features, including an achievement system, expanded player-vs.-player combat options such as siege weapons and destructible buildings, and the game’s first Hero class – the necromantic death knight.
Since launching in November 2004, World of Warcraft has become the world’s most popular MMORPG, with more than 10.9 million subscribers. The game’s first expansion, The Burning Crusade, broke PC-game sales records in North America and Europe by selling nearly 2.4 million copies in its first 24 hours of availability and approximately 3.5 million copies in its first month.
