Blizzard has revealed World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game, with pre-orders now open.
Adapted from z-Man Games' popular Pandemic ruleset, Wrath of the Lich King takes one of the most popular expansion packs for Blizzard's seminal MMORPG and reworks it for the tabletop.
Quests, artefacts and plenty of gameplay adjustments to make it truly feel like a Warcraft experience have gone into the game.
Instead of being set in the broader, full map of Azeroth, the Wrath of the Lich King board game restricts itself to the new continent introduced in the expansion, Northrend.
As opposed to creating your own character or playing as generic adventurers, players take on the mantle of major players in the storyline like Thrall, Varian Wrynn, and Sylvanas Windrunner.
Distributed by both Z-Man Games and Blizzard, the game costs $59.99 with pre-orders open. It's expected to ship by November 30th this year.
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game officially supports 1-5 players with an estimated play time of 45-60 minutes.
The announcement of this board game comes during a turbulent time for Blizzard as its parent company is embroiled in a sexual harassment lawsuit that's currently affecting the development of World of Warcraft.
