Source: videogamesblogger.com

Wrath of the Lich King for PC / MacThe World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack has been given a tentative release date on Tuesday November 4th, 2008, at a price of $39.99. This according to 7-Eleven stores; Amazon and Play online stores say the game will ship the day before hitting retail.

The wildly popular MMORPG for Windows Vista / XP and Macintosh computers recently opened up to Wrath of the Lich King Beta signups and it seems a by developer Blizzard promised release this year isn’t far off, unless — of course — they delay it to January next year again as they did with the previous expansion pack the Burning Crusade.

Since this news wasn’t made official by Blizzard, but by Kotaku tip, there’s been no word on the release of a Wrath of the Lich King - Collector’s Edition either.

Wrath of the Lich King features include:
* Master the necromantic powers of the Death Knight — World of Warcraft’s first Hero class.
* Learn craft of spell augmentation with new Inscription profession.
* Explore vast new continent and perilous dungeons filled with deadly creatures.
* Engage in epic siege warfare.
* Transform hero’s look with new character-customization options.
