On Thursday, November 13, 2008 the latest expansion pack for the wildly popular MMORPG, the World of Warcraft, will available at a retail outlet near you. The Wrath of the Lich King will open a new continent to explore and quest in, as well as a new class to play, the Death Knight.The Lich King has played a major role in the Warcraft game universe created by Blizzard Entertainment for many years. Check out the Warcraft III: Frozen Throne to get the full history of Arthas and his attempts at world conquest.
The movie above is the intro movie for the expansion and hints at what adventurers will see as they enter the new continent of Northrend. A HD version of the move is available on the Blizzard Wrath of the Lich King Web site.
Some of the Technolgia Guild members (that's the official, unofficial guild of TechRepublic) are going to participate in midnight launch events around the country, but I am waiting to pick up my copy of the WotLK during lunch on the release date. I need my sleep.
In the weeks to come, Technologia will take screenshots and make reports about what we are doing in the expansion, but in the meantime, you can check out the Wrath of the Lich King Photo Gallery. The expansion looks great and the guild is excited about what we will find.
