Blizzplanet's got the deets on a Future Shop midnight launch going on in Canada
(eh?), so plans of Wrath
midnight launch events are starting to sneak out into the world. Blizzard will be doing their usual schtick
in Los Angeles, and this time also in New York, San Franscisco, and Austin, where developers go out to stores to sign and say hi while people buy their game. Our good friends BRK and Mania are hosting an event in Orlando, Florida
, and I'll be picking up my game at the Gamestop just south of Clark and Diversey
in Chicago (and I'll probably invite you all out for a drink or two beforehand at a bar around here, if you're interested). We're also planning some more events around the country here at WoW Insider -- stay tuned for more information about when and where things are going down.
And if you've got information about a special midnight launch event going on around the country (or if, hint hint, you happen to work for a retailer and want to give us an inside scoop
on what they've got planned, anonymity assured), please do drop a note on our tip line
. The Burning Crusade
launch was the biggest expansion launch
of all time ever, and Wrath
, with its return to Warcraft III
lore and the increase in Blizzard's playerbase
, is shaping up to be even bigger.
