After being announced with a one-minute teaser earlier this month, World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King: A Pandemic System Game is releasing later this November for $59.99 on Z-Man's website and the Official Blizzard Gear Store. The game combines both the co-operative Pandemic tabletop experience with the World of Warcraft universe with the characters, battles, and quests players have come to know and expect.
“Wrath of the Lich King is our first time taking the Pandemic game system into beloved fictional settings like Azeroth. It literally opens up a whole new world of possibility,” says Justin Kemppainen, Director of Brand Management at Z-Man Games. “There’s no greater threat to Azeroth than the Scourge. The game really illustrates that by mixing the thrilling co-operative gameplay Pandemic fans know and love with World of Warcraft. We’re confident new and existing players of both franchises will love it!”
In the Wrath of the Lich King board game, players will control one of the heroes of Azeroth as they fight through the Scourge to reach Arthas the Lich King on an extra-large game board. You'll be able to choose from characters such as "Thrall, the Warchief of the Horde; Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind; and Sylvanas Windrunner, Banshee Queen of the Forsaken." Quests are also a brand-new mechanic to Pandemic, which will see players battle foes and destroy evil relics. There's also hero cards that will give players an edge against their enemies by using more attack power during combat, or special mounts that allow players to move more spaces on their turn. You can also use a Hero Card to use healing potions to restore hit points.
