Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King expansion set officially hits stores tomorrow, November 13th, but retailers are setting up for world-wide midnight madness release events tonight. With millions of World of Warcraft, or WOW subscribers, the next chapter of the game should do brisk business for the company this holiday.
Participating stores will begin selling copies of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King ($39.99) for PC or Mac one second after midnight, and at official launch events in New York, San Francisco, Anaheim, or Austin you can enter contests and buy a copy of the game signed by Blizzard Entertainment reps. It's first-come, first-serve so get to the US locations, or locations in Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Taipei, and Seoul early. A special Collector’s Edition of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King will be available for purchase as well.
