266w ago - Blizzard's going large for the launch of Wrath of the Lich King, with its central UK event to take place at midnight on November 12 at HMV on London's Oxford Street.
"We've been looking forward to these launch events all year," said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime.
"This is one of the few opportunities we get to meet with players in person, and we can't wait to celebrate the release of Wrath of the Lich King with them."
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the standard edition of the game as well as the limited Collector's Edition, which contains The Art of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King hardback book; Frosty, an exclusive in-game frost wyrm pet; a behind-the-scenes DVD; the official soundtrack containing 21 tracks; an exclusive mouse pad displaying a map of the newly opened continent of Northrend; and two World of Warcraft Trading Card Game starter decks with two exclusive cards available only in the Collector's Edition.
Be warned: the launch of The Burning Crusade was the biggest game's release we've ever seen in London. Get there early. And expect chaos.
