Blizzard's Wrath of the Lich King
expansion has garnered some more praise via
three Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences
nominations. The nominations are for Computer Game of the Year and Massively Multiplayer Online Game of the Year and Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition. The first nomination seems much more like an honorable nod, but the second two are very likely wins for Blizzard and its second expansion. Speaking purely in terms of composistion, the music design in World of Warcraft
-- and especially in Wrath -- has been some of the best in the business.
We won't know the winners until February 18th-20th when they're announced at the 2009 DICE Summit
, but we wish the Blizzard team the best of luck on all three nominations.
