World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic out in September
The 2nd original expansion to MMO has been recreated
Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Wrath of the Lich King Classic, the re-creation of WoW’s second expansion, will be released on September 26 - for free to all players with an active subscription. This expansion will launch globally at 3pm PDT and will be available on all World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic realms.
The expansion offers the continent of Northrend, the single largest land mass Blizzard ever added to the game with an expansion (until the upcoming release of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight). It also adds Death Knight hero class, available to all players and starting at level 55. Also featured is the original iteration of the World of Warcraft achievement system, and the introduction of the Inscription profession.
In the lead-up to launch, a 50%-bonus-XP event will run until Wrath of the Lich King Classic launch. Prior to release, all WoW subscribers will be granted the ability to create one Death Knight per Classic realm, which they can bring to level 70 through Burning Crusade Classic content until September 26. In addition, players will also be able to purchase optional upgrades, including new cosmetic items and a level-70 character boost for those who might not yet have a fully leveled character.
