Crossovers are all the rage these days, but some collaborations are just made in heaven, or perhaps hell in this case. With the world still gripped by the effects of the pandemic, it provides the perfect setting for a classic videogame to modernise itself for a new generation. A surprise announcement from both Blizzard Entertainment and Z-Man Games has revealed a crossover between World of Warcraft’s Wrath of the Lich King expansion and the hit co-operative Pandemic board game series
We hear the famous words of King Terenas Menethil II first spoken in the opening cinematic of the WoW expansion as the trailer slowly reveals the Lich King himself, Arthas Menethil, glowing in his unholy light. Alongside him are other recognisable races in the Warcraft series.
These pieces will be integral to how this crossover will take place as a board game. It is a great match, since the original undead scourge in the games overwhelmed the world just like a sudden pandemic.
The tabletop experience of World of Warcraft’s Wrath of the Lich King and Pandemic is certainly one to look out for. Both Blizzard and Z-Man Games will have more info to share soon, so be patient!
