In a move that surprises everyone who wasn't familiar with Blizzard before WoW, a WoW Battle Chest has been announced. It will include WoW, Burning Crusade, and the "official" BradyGames strategy guides for both. The best part is the price: $39.99 MSRP, which is about what BC by itself is going for most places. The games will ship on DVD. Needless to say, this will be a great product for getting new players into the game, or for getting yourself another account. It will start shipping on October 2. Blizzard has made a Battle Chest for each of its previous franchises, so this one was probably inevitable, but is no less welcome for that.
