[REVIEW] : Of course, Wrath of the Lich King is coming to WoW Classic

Wrath of the Lich King in World of Warcraft Classic. An expected announcement.

It was sewn with white thread. Following the release of World of Warcraft Classic in 2019, followed by the first Burning Crusade expansion in 2021, Blizzard will bring Wrath of the Lich King to WoW Classic. The American studio made the announcement on April 19, 2022, in parallel with the main announcement devoted to the new Dragonflight expansion for World of Warcraft.

On this occasion, a new cinematic, evoking that of Wrath of the Lich King which caused a sensation at the time, was unveiled.

Wrath of the Lich King: The Golden Age of WoW

The Wrath of the Lich King expansion is considered one of the best in WoW, if not the best. It’s spawned some of the best raids in gaming — Ulduar, Icecrown Citadel — some of the universe’s most charismatic and important characters (including, of course, Arthas), and introduced the high deeds.

WoW Classic also aims to allow those who have experienced this era to relive it – the business of nostalgia still works. Classic is indeed a service offered by Blizzard: relive the in-game experience when WoW Vanilla arrived, then the two expansions that followed.

It is not sure that Blizzard will continue the experience of Classic beyond, because the basics of the game have evolved considerably with the following expansion, Cataclysm. This is sometimes seen as a turning point, with the classical era before and the modern era afterwards. The release of Cataclysm was the occasion for an update of the structure of the game and old zones disappeared or were redesigned.


Like previous WoW Classic releases, Wrath of the Lich King will be the same expansion you remember and played from time immemorial, with a few small tweaks.

In case you need a refresher, Wrath of the Lich King tasks players with annihilating the Lich King (Arthas by his nickname), who sits on his frozen throne in Northrend and has powers over death. herself. The expansion includes several new areas for players to explore as they make their way to Icecrown Tower.

The expansion also adds the Death Knight class, which players can create without prerequisites, and start at level 55. Wrath of the Lich King will increase World of Warcraft Classic’s level cap to 80. expect the return of some classic dungeons like Stratholme, as well as all the raids that arrived in the expansion the first time around.

World of Warcraft Classic is available to current World of Warcraft subscribers and the update to Wrath of the Lich King will be available at no additional cost.

New for World of Warcraft

New, and even new with old, here is a summary of the videos that have just been put online for Blizzard’s MMORPG.
