Blizzard confirms Wrath of the Lich King release date

Most of us didn't expect it to happen, but Blizzard have finally confirmed it. The new expansion pack for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King will be hitting stores this year!

The game will hit North America, Europe, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Russia on November 13; November 14 in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand; and Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau on November 18.

Blizzard also announced a Collectors Edition for the title, which frankly comes as little surprise.

The Collector's Edition will contain:

* The Art of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, a 208-page book featuring never-before-seen images from the game.
* An exclusive in-game pet: Frosty, the baby frost wyrm.

* The official soundtrack CD, containing 21 epic tracks from the game, along with exclusive bonus tracks.
* A mouse pad featuring a map of the newly opened continent of Northrend.
* Two World of Warcraft Trading Card Game March of the Legion starter decks, along with two exclusive cards available only in the Collector's Edition.
