The Warcraft universe began in the nineties with the release of Warcraft I for the PlayStation platform. Years later, gamers around the world saw the evolution of the third-person strategy game to a venerable strategy game for the PC platform.
Perhaps the most memorable game after Star Craft in the 2d realm is Warcraft itself. Before WoW, players form around the world mastered the complex game architecture of Warcraft III, which had been expanded with the well-known Frozen Throne expansion pack.
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King is the latest installation of Blizzard Entertainment to the already hefty World of World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade. The game is an addition to the already rich environments and complex gaming system that composes WoW.
Wrath of the Lich King may be just the thing to wheat the appetite of WoW players looking for a new character class and improved game play. Wrath of Lich King features a newer character class: the death knight.
For those who have been playing Warcraft for a long time (at least already playing when Warcraft III emerged in the market) the death knight hero class emerged with Arthas- the used-to-be good Prince of the Human race who eventually destroyed those around him with the search for the Blade. Arthas eventually returns to his father the King?s kingdom and kills his father, thus beginning his career as the infamous Death Knight under the sway of the Undead legion.
The death knight hero class has powers similar to necromancers, thus continuing the older story line of the death knight getting his identity and powers from the Undead.
The expansion pack also features an improved and beefed up character development system. There are two magic numbers with the WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King: 55 and 80. Level 55 is when you get to customize your own death knight and level 80 lets you explore a veritable minefield of new abilities and powers.
The game is improved significantly with the addition of another Realm: the Northrend realm. According to Warcraft lore, Northrend is the continent of the deadly Lich King. According to feedback from beta testers, indeed the Northrend realm is tougher than the other realms, adding to the anticipation of finally coming face to face with the Lich King himself.
According to Blizzard, the new realm Northrend is open for visiting for any character level or type. However, the realm had been designed for characters who have progressed to at least level sixty eight.
As for the dungeons, there will be dungeons in Northrend and these are comparable to those that have already been made available to players in the Burning Crusade.
For the destruction dimension of the expansion pack, the addition of siege weapons would truly make the WoW experience better- because now you can tear down destructible elements of the environment.
