Just a few weeks ago, Z-man Games and Blizzard teamed up to tease an exciting collaboration, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game would soon be a reality. For fans of both games, this is truly a dream come true. By combining the collaborative nature of Pandemic and the fictional world of Azeroth, players will have the chance to join an epic conflict against the Scourge.
Of course, when we talk about the Scourge, we need to remember Prince Arthas. The once prodigal son turned a terrifying force of nature, the Lich King and Frostmourne hunger for more souls. This means a different type of Pandemic gameplay awaits.
Save The World Or Be Devoured
Players will get to experience the following in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game:
- An extra-large game board featuring forts, temples, battlegrounds and iconic locations from the world of Azeroth.
- LegendaryWorld of Warcraft characters with detailed and sculpted plastic figures, including Thrall, the warchief of the Horde; Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind; and Sylvanas Windrunner, the Banshee Queen of the Forsaken.
- Quests, a brand-new mechanic to Pandemic that sees players adventuring all across the frozen continent to battle monstrous entities, destroy evil relics, and more.
- Hero Cards that give players an edge against their enemies in the form of equipment for more attack power during combat, special mounts that allow players to move more spaces on their turn, healing potions to restore hit points, and much more.
If you are eager to begin the fight, there is still some time before the game launches. Pre-orders for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game has started, and you can grab yours for US$59.99 at both Z-man Games and the Official Blizzard Gear Store.
You can make the wait that much easier with a bunch of other Pandemic variants, such as the base game and expansions like On The Brink and In The Lab.
