Blizzard confirms release date of Wrath of the Lich King Classic

World of Warcraft Classic is getting the popular MMORPG's most beloved expansion on September 26.


Wrath of the Lich King was one of the first and largest expansions in World of Warcraft. It is also effectively the culmination of the events of Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne. To put it simply, it's a fan favorite. So, you can only imagine the excitement among the player base after finding out that Wrath of the Lich King is coming to World of Warcraft Classic.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic could bring World of Warcraft fans in droves.

Now, Blizzard has confirmed that the popular expansion for World of Warcraft has a release date and it's not that far off.

According to Blizzard, Wrath of the Lich King Classic is launching on September 26. On top of the expansion's arrival, Blizzard is giving players a huge experience boost until the end of September so fans can level up. But, if you think that you'll have to grind up to level 55 to gain access to the Death Knight class, we've got good news for you. Blizzard also confirmed that the Death Knight class will be available right off the bat.

The Wrath of the Lich King expansion will come to World of Warcraft exactly as it did many years ago. Well, almost.

Monitors are much thinner these days and internet connections are a lot faster, so those raids and quests that you couldn't complete because your computer or internet couldn't keep up are a thing of the past. Not to mention, World of Warcraft looks a lot better. Graphics and technological improvements aside, Wrath of the Lich King is a guaranteed nostalgia blast as it lets players adventure towards Northrend and do battle against Arthas Menethil, among other things.
