Blizzard Entertainment announced last week that World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King will arrive November 13.
The expansion is the second for WoW, which to date has amassed 11 million subscribers. The expansion arrives in all other regions (save China) by November 18.
"We're looking forward to launching Wrath of the Lich King and finally giving World of Warcraft players a chance to take on Arthas and his minions," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment in a statement. "Until then, we'll continue to refine and playtest the expansion content to make sure it provides a highly polished and entertaining experience."
GameDaily reports that the expansion will come in two editions.
A standard edition will include the game, and a Collector's Edition will include a 208-page art book; an exclusive in-game baby frost wyrm pet; a behind-the-scenes DVD; the official soundtrack; a mouse pad featuring a map of the continent of Northrend; and two WoW Trading Card Game March of the Legion starter decks. *deep breath*
There's also two exclusive trading cards that will be made available only in the Collector's Edition.
