World of Warcrack addicts to freeze our asses off in the snowy region of Northrend. That’s right, the next expansion is called World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King ( official site). Here's a little on what the game will feature:

• Death Knight Hero Class: Create a high-level Death Knight character -- the game's first hero class -- once certain challenges have been met.
• Increased Level Cap: Advance to level 80 and gain potent new talents and abilities along the way.
• Northrend: Explore the harsh new continent of Northrend, packed with new zones, quests, dungeons, monsters, and items -- and do battle with the undead armies of the Lich King.
• "Inscription" Profession: Learn this exciting new profession and gain unique ways to permanently enhance spells and abilities in the game.
• Siege Weapons and Destructible Buildings: Take the battle to another level with new player-vs.-player game mechanics and new battlefields to wage war on.
• New Character Customization: Change how characters look and express themselves, with different hairstyles and dance animations.
I dunno about you guys, but I was pretty disappointed with this announcement; I didn’t expect them to bring Arthas into WoW anytime soon, since he’s such a huge figure in the game’s storyline. Oh well, looks like they want to wrap up most of the old antagonists (Rest in peace Illidan) to make way for new ones – for all you know they’re growing weary of the same franchises and want to start something new. I was hoping to see another RTS based in the Warcraft world revolving around Northrend, but by the looks of it I doubt that’ll happen.
