ANAHEIM, Calif. -- August 3, 2007 -- Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced plans for the second expansion to World of Warcraft®, its award-winning massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Unveiled at the company's BlizzCon™ gaming festival before an audience of more than 8,000 gamers, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King™ will open the forbidding wasteland of Northrend to exploration by the hardiest adventurers. New levels of power, challenging new dungeons and encounters, an exciting new character profession, and the game's first hero class are just some of the new features awaiting players in Wrath of the Lich King.

"This expansion will add some of the most infamous characters and settings from the Warcraft® universe to World of Warcraft," said Mike Morhaime, president and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment®. "In addition to new story content, Wrath of the Lich King will introduce a number of features specifically requested by players over the past couple of years. We're looking forward to sharing further details with everyone as development progresses."

Players last visited Northrend in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne™, when Arthas Menethil fused with the spirit of Ner'zhul to become the Lich King, one of the most powerful beings in the Warcraft universe. He now broods atop the Frozen Throne deep in Icecrown Citadel, clutching the rune blade Frostmourne and marshaling the undead armies of the Scourge. In Wrath of the Lich King, the forces of the Alliance and the Horde will venture into battle against the Scourge amid Northrend's howling winds and fields of jagged ice.

Building on the foundation established in World of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King will add a rich variety of content to an already massive game. New features coming with the game's second expansion include:

Death Knight Hero Class: Create a high-level Death Knight character -- the game's first hero class -- once certain challenges have been met.

Increased Level Cap: Advance to level 80 and gain potent new talents and abilities along the way.

Northrend: Explore the harsh new continent of Northrend, packed with new zones, quests, dungeons, monsters, and items -- and do battle with the undead armies of the Lich King.

"Inscription" Profession: Learn this exciting new profession and gain unique ways to permanently enhance spells and abilities in the game.

Siege Weapons and Destructible Buildings: Take the battle to another level with new player-vs.-player game mechanics and new battlefields to wage war on.

New Character Customization: Change how characters look and express themselves, with different hairstyles and dance animations.

They just made plans to turn this game into a movie, i guess people can kill time now in more ways than one.

Kotaku is reporting that representatives from Legendary Pictures and Warcraft makers Blizzard attended this weekend's BlizzCon. There, they dropped a couple of hints as to what we can expect from a World of Warcraft movie.

Blizzard's Paul Sams and Chris Metzen and Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and Chief Creative Officer Jon Jashni confirmed that the film would be a live action venture with a modicum of CGI'd environments and special effects. Their plan is to release the film in 2009.

They want to create a true theatrical epic, not just another video game turned into a movie. The script is currently being reworked, and they have not yet attached a director to the project. The story is confirmed to take place one year before the events of World of Warcraft. And the film will be told from the Alliances' perspective.

Ssssoooo....the point of this game is to waste as much of your life as a possible....while paying a monthly fee... who the hell pays money for waisting precious time? Haha, seriously though is it pretty fun? Looks badass to play all messed up. There was a dude on my team last year that played this thing, even made a shitty site for it, he caught shit from all of us alllllll year long for being such a square.

Loved playing Halo and Battlefield 1942 drunk. hahah oh man that was awesome.
