The epic online multiplayer title gets its second expansion in the form of Wrath of the Lich King, providing even more content to players across the globe.

Much like World of Warcraft’s previous expansion, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King gives players a large selection of new quests and environments to explore, as well as altering some of the more fundamental features of the Warcraft world. New continent Northrend is home of the Lich King, who threatens to destroy the world of Azeroth and all of its habitants. Players’ next quests involve stopping the Lich King and fighting against the new dangers of the north.

Those planning to start World of Warcraft anew will be able to do so with the Death Knight - World of Warcraft’s first hero class. Players who wish to use the existing online characters are now able to quest to level 80, providing new skills and talents along the way. New character-customisation options let players edit their online personas with new hairstyles and dances.

World of Warcraft - Wrath of the Lich King adds even more replay value to a game already considered one of the most extensive ever made. With a new continent, features and additions, the world of Warcraft can only grow further.

Best Game Ever

I been playing WoW for just over 2 years now. Great game. You need to pay a subscription of about R 120 - R 150 pm to play it and you need decent internet connection but it is worth it. I have never played any other game since. The game is never ending and you never get bored. There is too much things to do. I have made friends with many others that play the game in south africa and europe. Try it. You wont regret it. If you need help starting and playing the game email me on neilgovender@mweb.co.za

Which version?

I take it this is the EU version? Also, does the game include 30 days free game time?

Near perfect MMORPG.

Wow remains one of the best MMORPGS around. I have tried Age of Conan and Guild Wars and Wow is still better than those two. The new expansion, Cataclysm will be out fairly soon too. Just be aware that if you dont have lightning fast internet access the game can be frustrating to play as there is no South African server available. This can be a problem sometimes as you will be disconnected from the server when you least expect it. In general it doesnt happen too much and the game remains huge fun to play. My char- Aggrro, lvl 80 Tauren Hunter, Saurfang. For the Horde!!!

Not too bad

This is the 2nd expansion for WoW. It made things quite interesting. The storyline is still great, and graphics have been improved quite a bit. It has been made quite a bit easier then it used to since the Burning Crusade expansion, and people do not play as hardcore as others, are now also able to get to the endgame content. For anybody that wants to join the MMORPG community, I would recommend to get World of Warcaft and its expansions. Great storyline, easy gameplay, and VERY addictive - definitely the best around!
