The Wrath of the Lich King Launch Event revealed

Ready to party with the Lich King

For some World of Warcraft players, the launch of the new Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack is a big deal that is to be celebrated. One way to celebrate is with a midnight Launch Event. There were thousands of these events taking place as midnight rolled around across the planet. In San Francisco, one retailer held a street fair at its Powell Street location where around 600 people gathered. Gamespot and CNET News took some photos and we created a TechRepublic Photo Gallery to commemorate the occasion.
